vision 2023 - the state of the church

These last three years have proven to be unlike anything we have ever seen before. We have dealt with challenges and been presented with opportunities. As we enter into a new calendar year, we should look forward with purpose and intentionality. God has a purpose for His church and Berlin Baptist is no exception. There are three specific areas in which God is calling us to be obedient. Each of these areas is strategic in their contribution to the glory of God, the health of the church, and the fulfillment of the Great Commission. It is time that we renew our commitment to serving Christ and serving others as we advance the Gospel.

"And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, 'All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.'"

Matthew 28:18-20
