First Class is a pre-membership class taught by the Senior Pastor.  First Class is the place to get to know Berean Baptist Church better–scroll down to see what is taught. If you’re new to the church, or have attended for some time but not explored membership, you are encouraged to check out First Class right away.

First Class will help you get to know our pastors, our mission, vision, covenant, beliefs, values, and other believers who are exploring whether Berean Baptist is the place to make their church home. You’ll get to hear from and meet many of our pastors and ask questions. We believe God accomplishes His purposes as individuals join themselves to and participate in local churches. First class is designed to help you make a wise, informed and Spirit-led decision about church membership. We think you’ll thoroughly enjoy the class and find it to be a worthwhile investment of your time even if you decide you’re not ready for the step of membership. First class should be thought of as a “boot camp” or discipleship class designed to help cement believers in their relationship with God. Scroll down to learn more about the details of the class. Check out the membership webpage to learn more about membership in the church.

The next First Class date: Sunday, June 2, 2024

Candidates approved for membership will be notified in writing of their inclusion into the voting membership of Berean.
