What are you looking for in a church?
Is it just a building where people come together one day a week to play religion? Or is it what Jesus intended.... a family of friends united in a common mission and a common cause?
Bealeton Baptist is an historic, stable congregation with a contemporary outlook.
Bealeton Baptist Church traces its founding to 1832. At that time, a small group of Baptists from Jeffersonton and Elk Run began holding meetings at a small building on Liberty Hill. Prompted by the Holy Spirit, that fellowship united to form Liberty Baptist Church. The church remained on Liberty Hill sharing a building with several other denominations from 1832 to 1879. In 1879, the church moved to the center of Bealeton and by proclamation was renamed Bealeton Baptist Church.
Since that time, Bealeton Baptist has remained strongly tied to the heart of this community. Through sending its sons and daughters off to war, supporting local school programs when the High School burned down, hosting mission conferences, sending missionaries abroad, and expanding its campus, Bealeton Baptist continued growing. In 1974, the structure built in 1879 was torn down and replaced by the current facility. In September 2010, to carry out the mission God has given us, we completed an extension and renovation of our education facility .
BBC is your neighborhood church. It is a family of friends focused on faith.
In recent years, your neighborhood church has seen unprecedented growth. Technology has been integrated into the way we worship, youth programs have been developed and children’s programs have expanded. This has all occurred because we have re-emphasized the foundations of our faith. We joyfully worship Jesus Christ. We seek to grow in our relationship with Him. And as we realize the depth and width of that relationship, it is our honor to share it with others...no gimmicks, no give aways...just the unabashed love of God in action.
Many things are different from the meeting that took place on Liberty Hill over 175 years ago; however, the one thing that has not changed is faithfulness to God’s message of hope and grace.
