Berean Bible Church is a small family church in central Ramona. Pastor Paul Owens leads the flock with two services on Sundays and Bible study and children's service on Wednesdays. The independent Baptist church welcomes newcomers. A Berean is one that would emulate the people of Berea, now called Veria in Greece. After the Apostle Paul visited Berea, he said of the inhabitants: "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the Word with readiness of mind and searched the scriptures daily whether those things were so."
