About Our Church

Our Vision

Marysville Berean Church is part of the Berean Fellowship of Churches and share the vision of:

Planting and strengthening churches to make disciples to reach the world! 

Our Core Beliefs:

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, authoritative Word of God.

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His Virgin birth, His sinless life, His death on the cross for our sins, His resurrection and return.

We believe God in His Grace has provided salvation for all who will trust Jesus Christ alone to forgive them and give them His life.

Our History:

The Marysville Berean Church started in 1976 as a home Bible study by concerned Christians with a view to eventually starting a new church in town. The church is part of a fellowship of churches that share the same beliefs about their faith in Christ.

The Berean Fellowship first began on Sunday, August 21, 1932, when thirteen people gathered in a North Platte, Nebraska, home. They came not to start a movement that would have a worldwide impact, but to pray together and hear teaching from the Bible. God caused the group to grow as many people in the community placed their faith in Jesus Christ.
