Who We Are

We are Oak Grove Baptist Church.

Mission
Our mission, given to us by Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:16-20), is to make disciples. We do this by helping the Oak Grove and Taylor communities connect, grow and serve.

  • Connect to God and His saving grace. Connect with a community of faith.
  • Grow in their faith, in knowledge, and in love - to be more Christ-like.
  • Serve God by serving others with a humble heart.

Description
We are a community church that is affiliated with the CrossNet Baptist Network, the Tennessee Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention.

What We Believe

Simply put...

We believe in the Trinity (One God in three persons - Father, Son & Holy Spirit).

We believe the Bible is the special revelation of God, His love letter to believers, and inerrant in the original autographs.

We believe that all have sinned and all are in need of salvation. That salvation only comes through faith in Jesus Christ.

We believe that Christ established the church as local bodies of believers, connected in faith, to glorify God by sharing the gospel, discipling believers, and helping others.

We strive to follow Christ's commands to love God and love our neighbor.

We affirm the Baptist Faith & Message 2000 as our confession of faith.
