We are FOR the 804!

For too long churches have been known for what they are against. Oak Grove Baptist Church wants to be known for what we are FOR!

Can you imagine the life-change that would be possible throughout RVA (and the rest of the 804) if everyone knew that God is FOR them

OUR MISSION STRATEGY

It is our mission to build a community of faith that's ALL about Jesus!

How do we do that?

Glorifying God

Loving One Another

Serving Our World

Making Disciples

"When Jesus saw the crowds, He had compassion on them because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd." Matthew 9:36

Life is not about us... because it's ALL about Jesus!

But if that's true in the Church, then shouldn't we also care about the people Jesus cares for? If Jesus is FOR our community, shouldn't we be FOR them too?

Imagine the ripple effect of the Gospel in the 804 area as people around us begin to understand that the church exists NOT for itself, but for OTHERS. We are for...

People outside the Church often characterize Jesus' followers as boring, judgmental, legalistic, hypocritical and even cruel. That's a far cry from what Jesus modeled for us and commanded of us to be characterized by love. We've been called to be "salt and light" performing good deeds so that people might bring glory to God (Matthew 5:16)! He came to serve, to save, and to bring hope. That's our example and the direction Oak Grove Baptist Church has been given since 1897. Let's grow together on mission FOR the 804 - so, what do YOU want to be known FOR?

WE ARE FOR 

OUR

COMMUNITY

We love the people of RVA and we are looking for more opportunities to partner with local government agencies, organizations, and businesses in order to meet and serve our neighbors.

WE ARE FOR 

OUR

SCHOOLS

In 2020, we will continue to develop our partnerships with Bensley, Beulah and Bellwood Elementary Schools - in addition, we hope to establish new relationships with other area schools in order to meet even more needs.

WE ARE FOR 

THE

BROKEN

Throughout the Bible, God reveals His heart towards the broken, hurting, and marginalized. Therefore, it is our desire to be a place of refuge and healing in Jesus Christ. But we also endeavor to take the Good News about Jesus to those who need to hear it most in our community! 

WE ARE FOR 

FAMILIES

Families all across our county need support and a safe place for children and students to learn to love and follow Jesus for a lifetime. We aren't there yet because we need your help to make this happen. Would you help us to create the environment to foster spiritual growth and family partnerships? We can reach the next generation together!
