Berachah Bible Church exists to glorify God by making disciples of Christ at home and abroad.  We want to be a church that gathers together for worship and biblical instruction, grows together by connecting God’s truth to life in the context of close relationships, and goes together with the gospel to our community and around the world.


“. . . they assembled in the Valley of Berachah, where they praised the Lord . . .” (2 Chronicles 20:26)
