“We have to determine our theology from the Word of God, not from what we feel.” – R.C. Sproul


Oak Grove Baptist Church believes the Bible is the absolute truth Word of God and is the most
crucial aspect of church life. As the absolute true Word of God, we believe the Bible is relevant
to us all the time in every scenario that life throws our way. We hold true to scriptures such as 2
Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking,
for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man or woman of God may be complete,
equipped for every good work.”

When we gather for Bible study, we do not teach according to our truths or according to our
wisdom, our teaching comes straight from God’s Word. From our youngest class to our oldest
class there is an emphasis on God’s Word. We offer a variety of Bible study classes for various
age groups on Sunday mornings. Several of our Bible study classes use the “Gospel Project”
material. Other classes use the “Explore the Bible” Bible study material. While other classes
teach exegetical studies through books of the Bible.

When we gather for Sunday morning worship service, we believe everything we do before we
open God’s Word is preparing our hearts to meet with the Lord before we open His Word. When
we do open God’s Word in our service, proper exposition of the Word is crucial. We seek to
understand God’s Word in the truest of forms and how it applies to us today. We do not shy
away from difficult passages. We are challenged not to be mere hearers of the Word but to be
doers of the Word (James 1:19-27).

We hold God’s Word to a high standard because through God’s Word we can know and
experience Jesus who is our Lord and Savior. Hebrews 4:12, “For the Word of God is living and
active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints
and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

Sola Scriptura … Scripture Alone
