About Berean

Berean Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church located in the beautiful community of Naples, Florida, just south of Ft. Myers.  Our church is easily accessible, just a couple miles off of I-75, just south of Davis Boulevard on County Barn Road. 

BBC is a loving, Spirit-filled family of believers that places our love for God at the heart of all our ministries and seeks to be a living testimony for our Savior, Jesus Christ.  We are a growing church seeking to see lives transformed through the power of the Gospel.  We cherish the opportunity to prepare people for a life pleasing to the Lord by meeting the spiritual and physical needs of our church, our community and the world.  We seek to provide a place that encourages people to study the Word of God, and to appreciate the wonder of His creation.

At Berean Baptist Church, we have one message-the message of the Lord Jesus Christ, and one ministry-the ministry He has given us to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
