Welcome to the Berea church of Christ. We hope you will be blessed by your visit with us. We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God and that it is our sure guide in all aspects of life. It is our goal to worship as directed by God’s Word and to teach and obey the will of God as revealed in the Bible.

Our Plea


Let us speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent. Let us call Bible things by Bible names and do Bible things in Bible ways. Let’s live the ancient faith.

Religious Mission Creep -

Mission creep is a term often applied to governments involved in overseas military activities.  History is replete with examples of governments initially going into other nations to keep the peace or stop some inhumane treatment of a segment of the country’s society, only to become embroiled in years-long entanglements.  Sometimes, even when the initial mission is a good one, it causes years of detrimental involvement.


Undoubtedly, our country has strayed from the mission of the Founding Fathers and authors of our foundational documents. Some of our modern leaders even edit the Declaration of Independence, by leaving the word “life” out of the well-known statement: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.


Others edit or ignore the official motto of the United States, adopted by the US Congress in 1956: In God We Trust. Prayer has become almost obsolete in the public forum, and recently legislative prayer has been the subject of litigation across the United States despite its institution in 1789. Although it remains as an opening to the US Congress, it too is at risk as the nation continues to stray from its founding principles. To me, that’s mission creep!


But how about in religion?  Can we be suffering from “mission creep”? When the Bible gives us clear directions on certain principles, such as church attendance, raising our children to believe in God, and items of worship, and we choose a path that strays from these (and other) basic instructions from God, that’s mission creep.


Perhaps the most dangerous word when it comes to worshipping God is “BUT”.

“I know that the assembly is at certain times (Sunday for sure (Acts 20.7, 1 Cor. 16.2), but for many also a midweek meeting) BUT my kids have a sporting event..”. Or, “I know God calls Christians to meet on the first day of the week, BUT  that’s my “me time”, and I’m entitled to it”


I could go on, but you get the point.  Don’t let “religious mission creep” (and that’s the devil’s goal) get in the way of God’s mission for us and our families.


Think about it.~jme
