Q: What is a Berean, anyway?

A: The name “Berean” comes from the Bible. In Acts 17:11, we learn the “Bereans . . . received the word with great eagerness, examining the scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.” The name is designed to remind us to be people who study the Scriptures in order to find truth.

Crete Berean Church is part of the Berean Fellowship of Churches – a family of churches in the Midwest and Northern California committed to reaching the world for Jesus Christ. Learn more at www.bereanchurchfellowship.org

Q: What is this church about?

A: We want to be a community of people who bring glory to God as Spirit-filled disciples who are witnesses to the love of Jesus. Put another way, we want to be more like Jesus so everyone else will want to be like Jesus.

Q: What is Sunday morning like?

A: Our Sunday morning schedule begins at 9:30 AM with Sunday School for all ages. We have classes for adults as well. You might want to come a few minutes early and enjoy a cup of coffee and talk with others who are here.

At 10:30 AM, we gather together in one room to sing, read Scripture, and hear teaching from the Bible. You’ll find people in suits and ties and people in shorts and polos (at least during the summer months). The music we sing is a mix of old and new; we emphasize the content of what we sing more than the form in which we sing it.

Q: What do you believe about the Bible?

A: We believe the Scriptures are true. And because we believe that, we believe that human beings are broken creatures who are lost, cannot find themselves, and will wind up eternally separated from God if left to our own devices. We believe God has revealed Himself to the human race through His Son, Jesus Christ, who is the fulfillment of everything God has promised to the human race.
