New to Berea First Baptist?
Come in through our Welcome Center on Sunday Morning.
We’re certainly glad that you’re taking the time to get to know us. The goal of this page is to provide up-to-date relevant information ,so that your visits with us are a great experience.
We encourage you to enter through our “Welcome Center” on your first visit. You’ll see the entrance labeled above the doorway (just to the left of the main Sanctuary). There is parking reserved specifically for YOU directly across from the Welcome Center.
Once in the Welcome Center, you’ll discover our trained volunteers who are here to help facilitate your visit, and guide you to a Bible study class. They can answer your questions about our various ministries, and can assist you as you seek a place of worship. On most Sundays, we even provide you a cup of coffee to help get the morning started!
We truly believe that being a part of a church family is a crucial aspect of your daily relationship with Christ, so we want to help you feel comfortable in visiting our church for the first time. If we can assist you in any way, or if you have any questions, please Contact Us via telephone or email. We’d be glad to share more with you about our church and ministries.

1. Do you have a Sunday kids program?
Yes. We have KidStyle Worship during our Morning Worship Service. Many people at Berea First have wonderful memories of learning about Jesus and making friends through our church’s children’s ministry. We want your child to have that same great experience! Our volunteers love children and know how to teach Bible truths in a fun and safe environment. Your child, from birth through grade 5, will be cared for and taught using the best Bible study resources and methods for each age. During the school year, we also offer “Children’s Church” during the 10:15 a.m. worship hour. It’s our worship service – but on a kid’s level! Our babies and toddlers are cared for in our Child Development Center, a safe state of the art childcare facility. Parents are required to drop off and pick up their child – this is for the safety of your child and for the assurance that your child is going where they are supposed to go! Our goal is to minister to your child, in a safe and loving atmosphere and give your child the foundation of personal faith in Jesus Christ and a personal experience of God’s love.
2. Does Berea First offer a Bible study before the main service?
Yes. We have Sunday School classes every Sunday morning for ALL ages. If you have children, we have loving volunteers who you can meet on Sunday morning, who interact with our children as they learn truths from the Bible. We believe your child will walk away from Sunday School with great memories and with truths that will shape their week! For our adults, we have classes for all age ranges and life stages. When you visit the Welcome Center, talk to a volunteer about the type of class you’d like to attend. They will assist you in finding the Bible study group that’s right for you. Classes begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings.
3. Where do I park?
Your first visit to our church actually begins with a simple question, “Where do I park?” We provide Guest Parking at the front of our Welcome Center and Sanctuary. Be our guest and park right at the front! This will give you one less thing to be concerned about when you arrive. Once you park, please enter our Welcome Center where our volunteers will guide you to a Bible study class, to the worship service, or answer any questions you may have. Our Sanctuary is the large circular building at the front of our buildings – the Welcome Center is just to the left of that building and has signage above the doorway to guide you.
4. What’s a typical service like at Berea First Baptist?
First and foremost, our services are centered around the Word. You can expect to hear the scripture read and prayed and sung and taught. Most Sundays the music in our service is led by our praise band and choir. The song selection is a Christ-centered blend of music spanning multiple generations. The sanctuary itself is a classic amphitheater design harkening back to a “theater in the round” style that enables everyone to participate in the worship service. One of the first things you will notice as the music begins is that our church loves to sing! We would love for you to come and join your voice to ours as we rejoice in the great salvation we have in Christ!
5. What should I wear?
We want you to come and enjoy a worship service without worrying about the style of clothes you have selected for your visit. Many of our men wear polos and khakis; some of our men wear blazers and ties; others wear jeans. Some of our ladies wear dresses typical for a business meeting; others are much much more casual. With all that said – we hope you see that your clothing style won’t affect your visit. You’ll likely see our ministry staff wearing business formal clothing – but that is not a requirement for visiting or attending BFBC!
We're always eager to hear what's beneficial, and how we can improve. Let us know how we're doing!
