New – what an interesting word. In some situations new can signify something amazing and exciting, like a newborn baby, or it can refer to something unfamiliar, such as new surroundings.
Statistics say that up to two-thirds of people looking for a church check out a church’s web site as a first step. If you’re new to Berean or to our web site, this web site can give you information that may help you make your decision. If you like what you see, we hope you will take the opportunity to join us some weekend in the near future.
You may have noticed by our logo at the top of the page that Berean is a faith community. We are very committed to experiencing God in new and life-giving ways. It is also our understanding that this faith journey is better travelled in community rather than alone.
It may be that you have a new-found faith in God, and desire to learn more about God. May we suggest that you click on the “Connect to God” button at the top right of this screen. You will find information to help you begin in your faith. We would also like very much to meet you personally and partner with you along the way. God has great plans for your life!
One last thing about the word new – God makes all things new. In fact, for those who enter into a relationship with God through Jesus, the Bible says that you will “become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (2 Cor. 5:17)
2 Corinthians 5:17 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.(ESV).
May God’s work of new-ness be at work in you!
