About Us

OABC exists to be a part of God's plan, to grow His people, and to reach the lost with the love of Jesus Christ.

We Believe

in One God, who is eternal, all-powerful, and absolutely Holy; Who has revealed Himself to man as existing in three distinguishable expressions of His essential Being: The Father, The Son (Jesus Christ), and The Holy Spirit.

We Believe

that The Bible, composed of the New Testament and the Old Testament (The accepted canon of Holy Scripture) is God’s eternal, inspired, infallible Word and is the standard and authority for conduct, faith and doctrine.

We Believe

salvation is a free gift offered to all by Grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of Jesus Christ who being God, suffered and died on the cross to pay for the sins of man. This Jesus Christ was buried and rose again on the third day.

We agree with the practices and beliefs expressed in:

  1. The Baptist Faith and Message
  2. The Apostle’s Creed
  3. The Nicene Creed

We believe that God loves all men, and desires to have a love relationship with us all.

We believe that God is pleased with His children and reveals Himself uniquely in every believing church family, and we truly love to meet together as a loving family, expressing His love to each other and to all who would seek a true relationship with Him.
