Why is Oakdale Baptist Church Here?
Oakdale Baptist Church seeks to see every generation changed by the love of Jesus Christ. We believe that God has called us to reach the world and turn it upside down for Him in order to fulfill the Great Commission. God established Oakdale Baptist Church over 50 years ago in order to reach Rock Hill, SC for Jesus Christ. At OBC, we believe that the next generation should get much attention from the church. We are serious about making sure they receive God's Word into their lives. We also believe that the church is to help grow their parents and grandparents into the Christians that Christ wants them to be.
We are not interested in making OBC famous but we seek to make the name of Jesus Christ known. He is the only way to get to Heaven and He is the only way to be fulfilled. That is what we have to offer to this community, South Carolina, the United States and this World. Nothing more, nothing less. Christ is what the world needs and we are here to point the world to Him.
