What we believe

Statement of Faith

We believe that the Scriptures are inspired by God, inerrant and authoritative, without error in the original writing, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. 

We believe in one God, creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of the virgin Mary. We believe that Christ shed his blood on the cross, dying for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that he arose bodily from the grave and ascended into heaven. We believe that individuals find salvation only through faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity, equal with God the Father and God the Son. He indwells every believer from the moment of salvation and empowers the Christian for a life that is God honoring. 

We believe the Church is composed of all true believers regardless of organizational affiliation.  

Our Vision

Bark River Bible Fellowship exists to be used by God as He transforms people into disciples of Jesus Christ. We seek to reflect His grace in the ways we interact with each other. Grace is not the end; rather, it is the means by which we receive Christ's love and give it — even when life gets messy.  


At Bark River, our passion is for you to enjoy the freedom and fullness that comes from a real-life experience with Jesus. In short, we want you to experience Life — the Life of Christ — as an intimate, authentic, daily reality.
