Berean Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church reaching out to Macon and Middle Georgia since 1978. Here at Berean we believe that God wants to use the ministry of a local church to be a part of His blessings in people’s lives. Our goal is to be able to minister to every member of the family!  We strive to provide both doctrinal and practical teaching from God’s Word that will help us in a relevant way as we seek to serve Him.  We offer many opportunities for God’s people to use their talents for His glory as they minister in our church.  Through these ministries and other activities, we experience the blessing of serving our Lord, reaching others with the gospel, and developing friendships with believers.  We have Sunday school classes for all ages, a Sunday morning children’s church, as well as a nursery for the little ones in each service. Our Wednesday night programs include special activities for teens and children.  Come grow, serve, and build with us!

Our pastor, Joe Bowker, is quite familiar with the Middle Georgia area, having been reared in Macon most of his life. He and his wife, Tina, also a Macon native, are both graduates of Gilead Christian Academy here in Macon as well as Baptist University of America. They were married on July 25, 1980 and have four children, Laura, Joseph, Brian, and Leslie and two grandchildren.  Pastor and Tina served with their children for many years in Mexico as missionaries. The Bowkers came to Berean in July of 2003 and count it a privilege to serve the Lord with their church family.
