Our mission is the reason we exist and drives everything we are and do as a church. At Oak Grove, our mission is founded on two primary directives: The Great Commandment and The Great Commission. Our mission statement encompasses both of these critical mandates:

Oak Grove exists to glorify God by becoming and making disciples
who love God, love people, and make disciples.

Love God

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment.

(Matt. 22:37-38)

Love Others

And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

(Matt. 22:39)

Make Disciples

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.

(Matt. 28:19-20)

Our Vision

Vision is about looking forward to the future. At Oak Grove, we believe that God is in control of the future, and the best is yet to come! As we look to the future with eyes of faith, our vision is:

To become fully devoted followers of Christ who bring hope, change lives,

and build God's kingdom by proclaiming the gospel to the world around us

in both word and deed.

OUR CORE values

  • The Gospel

    The gospel of Jesus Christ is central to all that we are and do. We aim to proclaim the gospel with gospel-centered preaching, live out the implications of the gospel in our relationships with God (worship), grow together as gospel-centered disciples (community), and proclaim the gospel in our actions and deeds, that we may lead others to Christ (mission).

    John 3:16; Romans 1:16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

    We value the authoritative and God-breathed Word as the source by which God reveals Himself, the ultimate authority over our lives, the foundation of all we believe, and the means by which God (through His Spirit) brings personal transformation. Therefore, we are committed to Christ-centered expositional preaching that penetrates our hearts, renews our minds, drives our actions, and transforms our lives.

    Psalm 119:105; John 17:17; Romans 10:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 4-12

  • Gospel-Centered Discipleship

    Knowledge through gospel-centered preaching and teaching is essential, but it’s not enough. God’s desire is that we grow in maturity and are mobilized to use His gifts to us for His glory and the good of others. Therefore, we are committed to gospel-centered discipleship, developing processes and building relationships that develop believers in their faith.

    Matthew 28:19-20; Ephesians 5:1-2; 2 Timothy 2:2;

  • Gospel-Centered Worship

    Our being redeemed and reconciled to God by His grace through the gospel of Jesus Christ is for God’s glory. Therefore, God is to be the object of our worship and devotion. That is the only reasonable response to knowing God and the transforming power of His love and grace. As a church, we are committed to worship. We are committed to worship at a corporate level through praise, prayer, giving, communion, baptism, and the study of God’s Word. We are also committed to seeing worship move beyond our church services into our individual lives as we love Him, serve Him, grow in our knowledge of Him, and live in obedience to His Word.

    Psalm 95:6; Luke 4:8; John 4:23-24; Romans 12:1; Colossians 3:16

  • Gospel-Centered Community

    The gospel not only breaks down the barrier of sin and reconciles (unites) us in relationship with God; the gospel breaks down the barriers that divide us (ethnicity, age, gender, class, background) and unites us with one another creating a kingdom community, a community composed of brothers and sisters united together into one family, under one Heavenly Father. As such, we are called to live life along side one another for the sake of one another (loving one another, serving one another, praying for one another, building up one another). As imperfect and messy as that can be, we are committed to that.

    Acts 2:44-47; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:28; 6:1-2; Hebrews 10:4-5; 1 Peter 2:9-10

  • Gospel-Centered Mission

    The gospel not only calls us to faith in Christ, it also calls us to join God in His redemptive mission. Therefore, as followers of Jesus, we committed to living out that mission. Driven by a love for God and the people around us, we strive to proclaim the gospel and make disciples through acts of loving service and a willingness to share the truth of the gospel with everyone at every opportunity.

    Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8
