First Time Visitors-What to Expect
Welcome From Our Pastor
On behalf of the congregation of the Marysville Berean Church, welcome to our site. We are delighted to share with you some information about us and hope that you find it helpful. We are named after the “Bereans” [buh-ree-uhns], who in Acts 17:11 were known for their eagerness in searching the Scriptures to know the Lord. We continue in that great tradition of explaining and applying the life-changing truths of God’s Word for our lives today. If you are looking for a place to worship, stop in and visit us. We would love to meet you.
Joel Barber, Pastor
Our purpose is to present Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to our community and world, and teach His followers from the Bible how to serve and glorify Him.
Be a disciple, make disciples.
“Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ,” (Colossians 1:28).
Make disciples of all nations.
