Principles We Live By


We believe in the power of faith to transform lives and bring hope to the world. Our church is a place where you can deepen your faith and find spiritual guidance. Hebrews 10:23, "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering..."(for He is faithful that promised;)


We are committed to building a strong and supportive community where everyone feels welcome and valued. Join us and experience the warmth and love of our church family.


Discover your purpose and live a life of meaning and fulfillment. At Oakes Chapel, we provide opportunities for personal growth and service to others. Romans 12:6-7, "Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy-let us prophesy... 7 Or ministry-ministering: or he that teaches-on teaching..."

Love God and Others

We believe we should love God and our neighbor as ourselves. Matthew 22:34, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the greatest and most important commandment. 39 The second is like it: Love your neighbor as you love yourself."

Set An Example

Our members strive to set a good example and live right every day of the week. Matthew 5:16, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

Help Those In Need

We believe that it is our duty to help those in need, to pray for those in need, and to take care of our brothers and sisters in the Lord. Hebrews 4:16, "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
