Our Purpose

Our purpose at Oak City Church is…

To reach people with God’s love and presence that they may live in their purpose as sons and daughters of God.

Living as sons and daughters of God means we have God’s heart for the world, which was lived out by Jesus Christ:

  • The lost saved
  • The gospel preached
  • God’s kingdom expanded

Our purpose is based on three scriptures:

  1. John 3:16-17 — For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
  2. Matthew 6:9-10 — Pray then like this: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will done, on earth as it is in heaven.
  3. Galatians 4:7 — So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, you are also an heir through God.

Oak City Church exists…

  • To go on the journey for more God
  • To grow the body of Christ around the presence of God
  • To impact the world with the gospel of the kingdom of God
