PASTOR CHAD DEJONG

SENIOR PASTOR

Pastor Chad has been in pastoral ministry for over 20 years. He has served as our Senior Pastor since 2020. Chad and his wife, Lisa, have four amazing kids who are growing too quickly. In the spring and
summer months, they are often found out at a ball field, coaching, playing, or watching.

PASTOR MIKE MCCLISH

ASSISTANT PASTOR

As Mike felt the Lord leading him into ministry, he left his position as a CPA to serve at BCBC in 2011. He enjoys spending time with his wife Sarah hiking and being active. Mike is thankful for the opportunity to serve with our church family as they use their gifts and talents for the Lord.

PASTOR RON TUINSTRA

VISITATION PASTOR

After his years serving as a pastor, it was only a short time after attending BCBC that he was offered the position of visitation pastor. After prayerful consideration, he felt it was the leading of the Lord to come on board. God continues to use Pastor Ron in his new calling. It is now his joy to seek to be a blessing to church fellowship as God enables him.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

WHAT WE BELIEVE

THE GOSPEL - SINNERS SAVED BY GRACE

 

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,"

Romans 3:23

"But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Romans 5:8

"Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him."

John 3:36

About Scripture We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings and of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

About God We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

About Jesus We believe that God the Son became flesh in the Person of Jesus Christ, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and who is true God and true man.

About Mankind We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.

About Jesus' Return We believe in the personal, bodily, visible and premillennial return of Jesus Christ.

About Salvation We believe that whoever by faith receives Jesus Christ as his or her Savior becomes a child of God. This salvation is not the result of any human effort, merit, or ancestry.

About Eternal Security & The Holy Spirit We believe that all true believers are kept eternally secure by the power of God through the new birth, the indwelling and sealing of the Holy Spirit, and the intercessions of Christ.

About Baptism & The Lord's Supper We believe that two ordinances have been given to the church for this age. Water baptism by immersion for all those who have personally acknowledged Christ as Savior and The Lord’s Supper, for those who have acknowledged Christ as Savior and are walking in fellowship with Him. Though these two ordinances are not regarded as a means of salvation, they are still very important for believers to participate in.

About Eternal Destiny We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.

Byron Center Bible Church is an independent Bible church, and part of IFCA International, a worldwide fellowship of churches, pastors, chaplains and laypeople.
