Life at Berean
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, and our only infallible authority.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ and the Bible should have the place of pre-eminence in the church, home and each person’s life. By doing this, there is a joyful, fruitful, and victorious Christian testimony.
We believe that we are commissioned by our Lord to …“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” We want to witness effectively in Philadelphia, and to all parts of the world.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has left a legacy of joy to all that would commit their life to Him. We believe in being joyful here on earth and through all eternity.
WHAT IS A CHRISTIAN?
A Christian is one who gives his life to the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour, loves and is obedient to Him as his Lord. A Christian has come to know Jesus personally.
WHY BE A CHRISTIAN?
God loves you. You want to have a happy life and God will teach you how to be happy. Christ will help you face life. He will save you from the power of sin. He will save you from going to hell. Christ will give you eternal life.
HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN
- Turn to the Lord Jesus Christ from your selfish and sinful ways. Acts 3:19
- You must accept Christ as Lord and Saviour believing that Christ has the power to forgive your sins and give you abundant life on earth and eternal life in heaven. John 1:12; 3:14-16; Colossians 1:14
- Make up your mind to obey God’s Word, the Holy Bible. John 14:21
