When the Christian message reached Europe in AD 52, the town of Berea (today Veria) was the third stop on the continent. Luke, the physician and historian, reports about the arrival of the missionary team:
The brothers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue. Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. Many of the Jews believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men.
This short story doesn't lose its inspiring power even today. The Christian Centre BEREA seeks to follow the example of Paul and his team and bring the gospel - good news - to today's men and women. It is open to look for new ways of communication, that would serve to spread the old and yet relevant message.
It also follows the example of the Berean Jews in considering the Scripture and not tradition or human reason to be the final judge in matters of belief and practice.
