Oakland Baptist

Who We Are

To follow the living Christ and lead others to do likewise.

You can learn a lot about Oakland from the web, but to really find out what we are about, you need to visit. We promise not to put you on the spot. We have a more traditional worship service at 8:30 on Sunday morning and a contemporary service at 11:15. We have small groups at 9:45.

My passion is for people to grow closer to Christ. Everything we do at Oakland is oriented to making disciples. We want people to hear the gospel of hope in Christ and respond to His offer of forgiveness of sin. We want people to grow in their relationship with Christ through His word, through prayer, and through community with His people. In other words, we are about transformation.

I invite you to come grow with us as we seek to know God more deeply, follow Him more closely, and represent Him to a lost world around us.

Blessings to you,

Pastor Cliff
