People: We at Oakland value people over programs and traditions. We seek to express love and compassion to all who come through our doors.
Biblical Application: We believe that we should take what we learn during study
and worship and put it into practice in our daily lives – at home – school – or the work place.
Growth: We value spiritual development in people’s lives that is identifiable through
maturing life-styles, loss of selfishness and self-centeredness and an increasing
desire to bring others to Jesus. We also value numeric growth and believe the
church should be continuously growing in size and mission outreach.
Giving: We value the teachings of the Bible which state unequivocally that
“God owns everything.” Therefore, we own nothing and should cheerfully and willingly give of our time, abilities, ideas and financial resources for the continued work of the church and its ministries.
