GET TO KNOW OAK RIDGE CHURCH
A congregation here to accept those from all walks of life.
Please, come as you are. We know different cultural, religious, or even economic backgrounds can make it difficult to feel at home. But we really do want to welcome you. We may need some lessons in how to relate, but we truly want to begin with friendship no strings attached.
We understand how easy it is to have doubts about faith. If you’ve read this far, there is likely at least some kind of spiritual curiosity leading you. Usually we begin with belonging. Hopefully along the way you will find our faith meaningful and want to try it on for yourself.
We want to experience our faith in practical real-life ways. We want to grow as human beings in community with a loving Creator. So letting go of attitudes or actions that hurt us or others around us really means taking hold of better versions of ourselves. Bible study, authentic relationships, soul-searching... these things lead us to maturity.
A FAITH COMMUNITY JOINING THE MISSION OF GOD
Oak Ridge believes Jesus revealed the God of love who crosses the boundaries of geography, culture, and social status, and history to restore relationships with all people.
Though most of us come from traditional church backgrounds, and in many ways we still are a traditional Church, this belief has affected all we do from Sunday school to service projects. Sometimes, we ask difficult questions. Sometimes, we make mistakes. But, we want Jesus to shape us into people our neighbors will be glad to know. We want our friends and neighbors to find Oak Ridge to be a safe place to connect with God.
