Welcome to THE CHURCH AT OAK LEVEL
Relax. This is “church” unlike anything you remember.
We are a community of followers of Jesus Christ. Our goal, and the reason we exist, is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Our passion is to break down the walls of “religion” and get to the heart of the relationship that God wants with each of us. We are a diverse family seeking to make a difference in the community in which God has planted us.
What can you expect?
We strive to create environments where people are encouraged to pursue intimacy with God, community with believers, and influence with non-believers. During our services, we utilize upbeat, contemporary music, practical, engaging teaching of the Bible, and incredible environments for children and students.
The Church at Oak Level began in August, 2010, as a revitalized church. In that short period of time, we’ve grown in our regular attendance and seen numerous lives changed along the way. Lead pastor Jason Cooper leads The Church at Oak Level with a strong vision and passion to see people connect relationally with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. It’s an exciting, phenomenal movement of God that you just have to see to believe.
Our mission is to bring glory to God by leading people in to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Throughout the years, the message remains the same, but the methods are new. Our call is consistent, but the context is ever-changing. Our mission describes our heart. We are God-centered; we exist to bring glory to God. God is glorified through changed lives.
Our vision is what God wants us to do as we move in to His future. As we move forward, we will become a church where the Truth of God rises up, the barriers of religion come down, and the followers of Jesus go out. Where the mission of the Church is solid and not open for change, the vision is a growing and flexible understanding of God’s specific purpose for our local body. Our vision is dynamic and unique.
- The Truth of God rises up: The Scriptures are the foundation for all we do at Oak Level. Therefore, we will unapologetically cling to the Bible as the inerrant Word of God; His Love Letter to a broken creation. Everything we do has the Bible at its core.
- The barriers of religion come down: Religion has gotten in the way of people knowing Jesus more than anything else. Religion is simply ‘rules without a relationship.’ We believe God has called Oak Level to remove the barriers that religion often establishes to coming to know Jesus Christ in a personal, intimate way. If you’re tired of religion, you’re in the right place.
- The followers of Jesus go out: Jesus has given his followers a task to accomplish. We exist to complete His Great Commission of telling the world that they can know God in a personal way through His Son, Jesus. As a church, we gather together weekly in order to scatter to our world daily.
Affiliation and Polity
We are an elder-led church and affiliate with the Southern Baptist Convention. That simply means that we cooperate with other like-minded churches to accomplish the task of sharing the gospel all over the world.
We focus all our resources on a straightforward process aimed at producing world-impacting disciple-makers. There are three primary events in this process.
- Worship Gatherings
- Small Groups
- Ministry opportunities – churchwide, local, and international
We believe that a simple church focused on reaching the world for Jesus will accomplish the prayer of Jesus that God’s Kingdom would come and His will would be done in our lives perfectly as it is in heaven.
