Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need
to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.      2 Timothy 2:15

What Is A Berean?
Bereans were the inhabitants of the ancient city of Berea, also known in the Bible as Beroea and now known as Veria. According to the Book of Acts, Chapter 17 verse 11 (as shown in the picture above), Paul of Tarsus and Silas preached at Berea, and the inhabitants "eagerly examined the scriptures every day to see whether these things were so", and many of them believed.
Today...being a called or referred to as a Berean should be a compliment to any true Christian.   By definition it would define us as people who were faithful and noble enough to test what we are being told.   This testing that we do has a high standard that can only be achieved through using the Word of God itself as the measuring stick.

At MennoniteBerean.org we encourage you to check out the lessons and sermons that you are being taught.
      Use the Bible as the ultimate test or measuring stick for this examination.
      Then be bold to ask questions if needed.
      Remember... We should be able to give an answer to God and others for what we believe.   If we are taught the wrong doctrines we are still responsible before God to confront and defend the faith according to the Scriptures.
