“We are not a building or a name. We are a community where people can hear God’s truth, experience His love and grace, and respond to Him with freedom.”

 

We are Community

At Oakwood Baptist Church, “community” is more than just a passive synonym for “group.” It’s connection and relationship built on shared purpose and passion. It happens in weekly Celebration services; life groups during the week; teams that pray, lead, and reach out together; and partnerships with other churches and organizations.

 

Transformed for Christ

God doesn’t want us to stay the same. In fact, He tells us to “be transformed through the renewing of our minds.” We are a community of seekers and learners. We’re seeking to know God better, hear His voice, and respond to Him with our lives. The more we seek Him, the more God reveals of Himself—and of who He wants us to be.

 

Catalysts for Changing Lives

God’s movement has always been revealed through lives He has changed and then used to influence others. As God changes and refines Oakwood Baptist Church, He calls us to invest all that we are into being catalysts for other lives and churches that need change. To this end, we constantly seek out, and try out, new ways of effectively reaching today’s generations with the Good News that’s been true for centuries.
