OUR VISION To create a church who knows who they are because they know who their God is.

KNOW God intimately

Choosing to believe and trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior is the most important decision a person will ever make.  However, salvation is just the beginning of a beautiful lifelong journey in a relationship with the God of the universe.  God’s will for his children is to learn who he is as Father. When we do, we soon discover who we are in him. 

>Salvation – It’s all about what Jesus did on the cross.

>Relationship – God has called us into a relationship; not a religion. 

>Baptism – There is a baptism in water and the Holy Spirit.

>Know Class – This is our discipleship class at OAC.  Jesus said to make disciples; not converts. 

GROW with others

God designed the body of Christ to fellowship with one another and do life together.  When we do, we find strength, joy, support, and love.  We are made to grow, spiritually, together.  Sometimes people encounter God just by hanging out, playing games, laughing, praying, crying, eating, etc.  We need each other.  In fact, you may know you need God and think you don’t need others, until you encounter God through others.  

>Fellowship – Acts 2:42 says that the disciples devoted themselves to the apostles teaching, fellowship, the breaking of bread, and to prayer.  

>Grow Groups – These are our small groups at OAC.  We are created for community.

SHOW our identity

What has God deposited in you?  What are your gifts?  What is your personality and how has he wired you?  Come, follow Jesus, connect to the church, discover your gifts and go make a difference by serving.

1 Peter 4:10 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.

>Volunteering – Every believer, young or old, is fully capable of being used by God.  

>Show Class – This is where we learn our identity as a church, as christians and as individuals.  The goal is for us to discover, develop and deploy. 

GO to others

If a church is not reaching lost people, it has lost one of its ultimate purposes.  Jesus sent his disciples to lost people and said, “As you go, preach…”.  We want to embrace the ‘as you go’ lifestyle. 

>Evangelism – Evangelism isn’t going to an outreach one day; it’s reaching out everyday, as you go.  

>Missions – OAC believes in supporting missionaries around the world for the sake of advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ.  

>Go Groups – These are our evangelism teams at OAC.  We do personal, prophetic, nd community evangelism.
