History: The Berea Church of God moved into its current facility on Rash Road on Feb. 24, 2008. Dedication services were held on April 6, 2008. The church history traces back to 1937 when prayer services were held at Eliza Richardson’s home in Berea. The church then moved to Oak Street and became affiliated with the Church of God, Cleveland, Tenn. In 1968, the church erected a modern sanctuary on U.S. 25 North and remained there until it was destroyed by fire in 2004. The church then met in two locations for three months and leased a facility on Wallaceton Road for three years. Construction began on the current facility in 2007.
Purpose: Love God, Love People, Serve Others
No going back: “There is no going back to style over substance or performance over preparation. There is no going back to programming over prayer. There is no going back to a song service over a worship experience or a sermon over a message. Whether we like it or not, God has laid his hand upon us. God has called all of us to a higher place in him, are you going to answer the call? Or are you going to continue to make excuses why you cannot be the person that God wants you to be? The choice is yours, but remember there is no going back.” – Pastor Hobbs, February 2008
