Our Church History

The church located at 740 Lithia Pinecrest Road was previously Berean Bible Community Church and was subsequently changed to Berean Baptist Church once the church joined the Southern Baptist Convention.  Unfortunately, the church closed in early 2005.

Thanks be to God that there was a small remnant of members who wanted to start a new church.  In starting the new church they desired to use the same name of Berean because it represented the character of the people wanting to ensure the things they learned were scripturally sound (Acts 17:11).  Therefore on August 7, 2005 a new church was created called The New Berean Baptist Church.  The church met originally at a small daycare center and school adjacent to the current property.  Eventually New Berean was able to procure the property at 740 Lithia Pinecrest where service is currently held.


Currently, we are a congregation of approximately 60 people (as of 2009) and welcome others who are seeking a church home to come worship with us. Our church is very caring and we desire to extend our fellowship to all members and guests.
