About Berean Bible Church:

Berean Bible Church is an ethnically diverse, non-denominational church in NE Philadelphia, Pa with a current congregation of 50-60 that is made up of friendly people who love the Lord Jesus Christ. Our church building is nestled on over two acres of land. The spacious property is fenced with a playground and large grassy area where children and youth enjoy outside activities. We are a small family oriented group of believers who faithfully study the Bible and encourage one another in the Lord. During our worship services we pray and sing hymns and Scripture-based worship songs which prepare our hearts to receive a message from God's Word. You'll also find that our focus on evangelism and outreach is strong. We believe it is why God has strategically placed Berean Bible Church as a lighthouse within the city limits of Philadelphia. Parsonage available.  

Job Qualifications:

Bible college and/or seminary training and ministry experience are desired, but each resume will be prayerfully considered as we seek God's direction for the leader who meets the qualifications in 1Tim 3:1-7 and Tit 1:6-9. Must have a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures and be compatible doctrinally as dispensational, pretribulational, premillennial and neither reformed/Calvinistic nor Arminian. Also, Berean Bible Church believes that speaking supernaturally in languages and dialects and the working of sign miracles gradually ceased as the New Testament Scriptures were completed and their authority became established. Please include, along with your resume, your own personal doctrinal statement, developed from your own study of the Scriptures. If you use a statement of faith from another source, please cite it as such.
