A Christ-centered, Bible-based, family-oriented church committed to God, one another, and our community.

Alive in Christ!

Jesus said: “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”-John 10:10
Too often, we are lost: just “existing” or “going through the motions”.
But God has something bigger for us, and it’s found only through His Son.
Join us at Great Oaks in 2015 as we focus on being “Alive” in Christ!
