Will Someone Contact Me?
Not unless you want us to. We will send letters thanking our guests for their visit, and include you on our email list if you choose to sign up, but you may cancel that at anytime. Our pastors and leaders would love to meet with you or pray with you if you indicate your desire for that when you give us your information.
What Are The People Like?
We are a multi-generational community with lots of young families with children. We are striving to be a “real” faith family that focuses our lives around Christ and His Word, passionately worshipping God and encouraging community based discipleship around the “one anothers” of the New Testament. Our family consists of people from all walks of life and all kinds of life experiences who have been saved by the grace of God. We have a good number of military families (we’re located near Tinker AFB) and we love to support and encourage them as they serve and protect our country.
What Is The Service Like?
Our worship time is celebrative and warm, led by a contemporary worship band. Our pastor’s preaching / teaching is mainly Expository (verse by verse explanation of the meaning and relevance to our everyday lives) with emphasis on practical application for real life. In our morning services, guests will see multi-generational believers worshipping together with lots of students, young families and children–who start out in worship with parents but are given the option of transitioning to and from Children’s church (creative lessons & fun activities to involve children in the lesson). Children return to “big church” during the Offering time near the end of the service.
What If I Am Not a Christian?
You are most welcome to come check us out! We hope you will feel “at home and welcomed” by a community who has found hope and meaning in our lives. We love to meet new friends and to explore the “universal questions” of life (Who am I? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? What is wrong with the world? How will what is wrong be made right?)
We consider ourselves to be a “hospital for sinners” and not a museum for saints. We’re all in process together on this journey called life. If possible, we’d like to lighten your load or brighten your road by sharing the Good News of the Gospel!
What Is The Community Like?
A faith family that focuses our lives around Christ and His Word, passionately worshipping God and encouraging community based on the “one anothers” of the New Testament. We are focused on loving and serving others by committing to practical missions and service in our community and missions partnerships around the world.
