We are a place
We are a community that exists to honor the name of Jesus Christ. We believe that in Jesus, God walked among us, took our sufferings and our missteps on himself, forgave us and gave us new life. We believe that Jesus rose from the dead and is alive today and forever. We gratefully give everything to him; we adore him; before him we fall down.
We are a community
We believe that God hears prayer. Even more — we believe that God speaks to those who come to him with an open heart and listen for his Spirit! And therefore we find prayer to be a great adventure with a God who loves us.
We are following
Because of Jesus’ resurrection we are a community of hope. We are passionate that Jesus’ ways shape our lives. We long for the redemption of all things: every stage of life, men and women, singles, marriages and families, children, the rich or the poor, the struggling, the happy, the mentally unstable, the driven. Indeed, all of God’s creation.
Listen and Read
Berea is a place that has many meanings for me. It is a place of spiritual deepening, laughter and friends, a chance to connect with other like-minded people, a place where I don’t have to feel different for what I believe in, and a place that renews my desire to continue my relationship with God.
We cannot expunge his sins, but neither can we demonize him. The more one studies and contemplates Thomas Cranmer, the more one comes to appreciate this man, filled with contradiction and spiritual turmoil, who often failed, yet did many great and good things. His execution is powerfully moving, but so is his fear of his loved ones’ deaths that likely motivated his recantations. We find ourselves filled with both awe and pity, and neither can or ought to be removed from our image of Cranmer.
