We are here to seek after God, share the good news of Christ, and equip our members to do both.

We Are 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.

 -Pastor Derrick Lewright


First Time?

The entrance is on ground level; therefore there are no stairs to climb. We have handicap parking available as well as handicap facilities.

We have a very nice nursery facility for your children 3 years old and younger called Safari Kids. It is our privilege to care for your children so you can enjoy our classes and worship services.

Everyone is invited to attend any of the Bible Classes for the different age groups. There is more information available on the classes and how they are divided, just click on “Ministries” at the top right of this page

After attending a time of worship through music, the kids ages 3-10 are dismissed to Children’s Church for a lesson on their age level.

Throughout the year, Berean will have special events which include the celebration of the Lord’s Supper, musicals, dramas, mission conferences, etc. We will do our best to keep you informed of upcoming events through our website and special announcements in the bulletin and during the services.
