The basic message of the Bible is that eternal life is the free gift for all who believe in Jesus the Messiah. Those who believe are set free to love God and serve Him, and they will be reborn into eternal life. Since 1879, Jansen Bible Church has preached the teachings of the Bible and built a community to celebrate God and share His word. We believe in edification within the church, evangelism around the church and participation in missions around the world.
