Our purpose is to know God. Paul puts it this way in 2 Timothy 2:15: "Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
We are not charismatic in theology or practice, though some of our congregation come from charismatic or Pentecostal roots. We believe God can and does perform miracles, but we do not believe what are purported to be miracles today rise to the biblical standard.
We make no effort to become, nor to be perceived as contemporary. We make not effort to be "old fashioned." We see no such scriptural mandate for either, so our goal is simply to be as scriptural as possible in all that we believe or practice.
At Old Oak Bible Church:
-We believe there is one God in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
-We believe in Jesus Christ's deity, virgin birth, sinless humanity, substitutionary death, atoning blood, bodily resurrection, and ascension into heaven.
-We believe the Holy Spirit indwells the people of God, both individually and collectively, enabling them to exhibit supernatural character traits as they submit to his leadership.
-We believe in salvation by faith in Christ alone, without works and solely by grace.
-We believe in the need of works to express gratitude and give a living demonstration of God's transforming power, which results form Bible study, prayer, witnessing, involvement in a Bible-believing church, and the obedience to our Lord's command to lead people of all nations to faith and maturity in Christ.
-We believe in the one true Church, the body of Christ, consisting of all believers, regardless of race or social standing.
-We believe in the biblical pattern of the family, that begins when a man and a woman choose to become husband and wife and which grows as children are born to them. This pattern includes clear and certain responsibilities on the part of everyone who is part of that family.
-We believe in the spirit world that includes angels, Satan, and demons, all of whom influence our lives, even though Christ has already secured the victory over Satan, his demons and death.
-We believe in the imminent rapture of the Church and Christ's personal return to establish His kingdom on earth.
