Welcome to Berean Baptist Church. We’re glad you decided to check us out. Berean is a caring church where everyone is welcome, but we understand that looking for a church to be a part of can be a daunting process. Because of that reason we hope to be of help to you.

Here at Berean our purpose is to glorify God by loving Him intensely, by reaching unbelievers, and by equipping believers to serve Him locally and around the world. Our desire is to be a light for Christ to the city of Bolivar and surrounding areas through serving others and being involved in community projects and outreaches. We also strive to reach others around the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ and are known as a church with a heart for missions. Berean is the sending church of six missionary families and currently supports, financially and prayerfully, 28 other families and projects both locally and worldwide.


At Berean there are classes for all ages and an active and exciting children’s ministry. There is also a nursery available during all services. We believe God has called us to minister to the entire family, and you and your family are important to us. We would count it a tremendous privilege for you to come and see what Berean is all about. We hope to see you soon.
