What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Oak Hill Baptist Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.


God has revealed himself to us through His son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, through the Bible, and through all of creation itself.


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed to rule over and take care of God's creation.

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they sinned, and ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, be cursed with death, and fractured all of creation ever since that time. Adam's sin spread to all his offspring (all mankind) and therefore all have sinned and need a Savior.


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a perfect, sinless life and according to the perfect plan of God, willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin. After three days, God raised Jesus from the dead and now, by grace, offers the free gift of eternal life to all who believe in Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior.  
Salvation is found in Christ alone.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, making disciples of all nations.


Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
