Our History

















Berea Baptist Church was organized in 1939. Members from Hickory Grove Baptist Church formed a new congregation as a mission outreach for the community which was led by Reverend Tom Roach. The newly formed church group met in homes until 1940 when the first building was erected. 

Over the years, the following additions and improvements have been made to Berea Baptist Church:


1967 - The Education Building was added.

1978 - The parking lot was paved. 

2003 - The Fellowship Building was constructed.

2004 - The church became incorporated.

2013 - The church sanctuary was remodeled.
