ABOUT US

Our reason for existence is that we might be a vibrant multi-generational church, passionately in love with Jesus, and intentionally serving the local and global community.  We are committed to the truth of the Bible, faith in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the enduring presence of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.

STRATEGY

While each person is created by God for a unique purpose, we are convinced that God has designed all of us for connection, and that our lives are incomplete without these three: Christ, Church, and Community.

We were created to connect with God himself. Jesus’ death and resurrection formed the pathway for us to have a relationship with God. In fact, our most fundamental need as human beings is to be connected with the God in whose image we were made. We seek to grow through a life long journey of building this relationship.

We were created to connect with others. Life wasn’t designed to be lived in isolation, but God created human beings to be dependent upon one another. We encourage, support, learn from, work with, inspire, and pray for each other. The Christian life is not only about individual relationships with Jesus, but about our corporate connection together moved by the power of the Holy Spirit.

We were created to connect with our community, both locally and globally. Our focus is not to be inward on caring only about ourselves, but outward towards those around us. Because Jesus loved and served, we are called to similarly redeem, serve, and improve the world around us.

GOSPEL IMPACT

We are excited to be a church that partners with God to see hope and the Gospel extended in a holistic way beyond our walls, into the community, and quite literally all around the world.

They met while attending Indiana Wesleyan University. John graduated with a degree in ministry, and Kristia with a degree in business.

Carol has the necessary education and training to be an ordained minister, but chooses to remain a part of the laity. She serves a ministry at Heritage Village ministering to residents and leading a Bible Study. While technically a "lay leader," we are grateful for all that Carol does and to consider her a part of our pastoral team.

Join us on Sunday


The best way to get to know us at Oak Ridge is to visit us for a Sunday morning experience at 10am.
We believe that you'll find us to be a friendly bunch that is warm and embracing of guests. Like your family at home, we're an imperfect group of people. But we believe that God uses imperfect people who love with big hearts to have a huge impact on the world. We'd love to invite you into our family, and to join us on the journey we call "life". We hope that you too will think of Oak Ridge as a place you can call "home".
