Berean Bible Church began in October, 1989.  Our first service was held at The Baptist Bible College of Indianapolis.  Pastor Charles W.  Simmons Sr.  founded the church based on the principles of God’s word.  His vision was to have a church that would preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, win lost people to Christ and help them grow into faithful disciples.  This vision is based on Act 17:10-11, “…Berean were ready minded to hear the word with great eagerness and to search the scriptures daily to determine if what was being taught was true.”

After several moves to temporary locations, Berean broke ground for their new building at 5602 N Allisonville Road, Indianapolis, IN.  The first service and church dedication was held August, 2000.  Throughout the years, many new ministries have been developed and countless lives have been changed and touched with the love of Jesus Christ.


We are still holding fast to our original purpose to Glorify God, Make Disciples, and Love All People.  We exist to “Build Families for Christ!”
