When you visit the church of Christ in Oakland, Maryland, you will be received with courtesy and friendship. Those who come to worship and learn are our honored guests. We want your visit to be comfortable and pleasant, as well as profitable.

You will find a friendly group of people, bound together in Christian love, who are seeking to live and worship by the principles of Jesus Christ. We are the first to confess that we are not perfect, but we are trying to do right. We want to exhibit a sincere spirit of Christian charity and kindness toward everyone.

You will find worship that is simple, orderly and scriptural. We believe, as Paul admonished in 1Corinthians 12:40, that all things should be done decently and in order. Christ explained that worship must be “in spirit and truth”: (John 4:24). You will find therefore, that the items of worship, which are authorized in the New Testament, are things we practice.

Men of the church lead prayer. The singing is congregational. Giving is free will. The Lord’s Supper is celebrated every Lord’s Day. The sermon is always on a Bible theme, with emphasis on knowing and doing what God teaches in His word.

You will find among our members those who hold no creed but Christ and who follow no book but the Bible. Perhaps you may find what you have been seeking.


Scripture Of The Day

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God.  Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 
(Colossians 3:1-2)
