In July 1974 Dr Gerald E Golding started holding services in a little white house by the side of College Road (SR200). After two weeks of preaching services and much prayer, 16 joined together in charter membership of College Park Baptist Church on August 7, 1974. A State Charter was received, along with recognition from the Federal Government, on August 29, 1974. The church completed a 6,800 sq ft education building on Airport Road (SW 20 St) with dedication on April 18, 1976. On June 27, 1979, the name was changed to Airport Baptist Church and on November 14, 1984, the name of the church was changed to Berean Baptist Church.
The following pastors have served Berean:
On March 21, 1993, Rev Mike Patton was called as Berean's Pastor and on June 4, 2004, Pastor Mike Patton received his Doctor of Divinity Degree from North Carolina College of Theology in Wilmington NC.
Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus as our Savior, and on profession of our faith, having been baptized in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love, to strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the Church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations.
We also engage, to maintain family and private devotion; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, back-biting and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.
We further engage, to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior, to secure it without delay.
We moreover engage, that when we remove from this place, we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this Covenant, and the principles of God’s Word.
"Walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God." (Ephesians 5:2)
