Berean Baptist Church is an independent Bible church located at 1620 Center St in Hutchinson, KS. It was organized August 2, 1925, by First Baptist Church of Hutchinson, Kansas. The church was duly incorporated in November of 1959. The church is not affiliated with any denomination or convention. 


The church, believing in the Bible as the inspired Word of God, acknowledging Jesus Christ as its head, and adhering to all His teaching, declares as its purpose:

  • To maintain regular services for public worship and to encourage systematic Bible study.
  • To win people to the personal acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior through the Gospel message, corporately and personally.
  • To cooperate heartily, by prayer, gift, and service, in the missionary effort to establish the Kingdom of Christ.
  • To train people for Christian service and for victorious Christian living.
We sing the hymns of the faith and teach the Bible as the inspired, inerrant Word of God. We are concerned for the spiritual welfare of people and believe that God answers prayer.

Doctrinal Statement

Section A. Inerrancy of Scripture

We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as verbally inspired of God, that they are complete and inerrant in the original writings, and of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

Section B. Trinity

We believe that there is one God manifested in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Section C. Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal pre-millennial return in power and glory.

Section D. Man

We believe that man, created in the image of God, sinned, incurring not only physical, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. Every person is born with a sinful nature and, therefore, is a sinner by word and deed.

Section F. Holy Spirit

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling presence the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life, unstained by the world, the flesh and the devil.

Section G. Resurrection

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved unto eternal life, and the bodily resurrection of the lost unto everlasting damnation.

Section H. The Lords Supper

We believe the elements of the Lord’s Supper symbolize the body and the blood of our Lord Jesus and as such shall be partaken of by believers in remembrance of his death until His return.

Section I. Baptism

We believe that water baptism is a personal testimony of faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Section J. The Church

We believe that the church exists as a body of Christ to carry out His work on earth. Each member of His Body has the responsibility of witnessing with life and word so that the unsaved may hear of salvation in Jesus Christ. Specially gifted men are given to the Body for the purpose of teaching and bringing to spiritual maturity all those who are members of the Church.

Section K. Creation

We believe that the Biblical creation account is to be understood literally, that the universe was created by God in six 24-hour days and was perfect until corrupted by sin.
