Who We Are
Our Church was formed in 1974 and has seen many souls saved through it's dedication to the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We have tried a contemporary approach to worship, a blended approach to worship and have returned to a traditional approach. We praise God for the different styles of worship and bless all churches in the worship style the Lord has given them. However, we have a maturing family, and young family's that still feel that this style brings them closer to the Lord. If this is the style you embrace for worship, we invite you to come, and enter God's house with "thanksgiving and praise."
Through the past 40 years, we have seen many families move away from either job changes, residential changes, or relocation. It doesn't matter where God's people are physically - but spiritually we are all one family. That is why many lasting relationships have formed over the years, why we still have "homecoming." You will find the White Oak family is more than a church group - we are family and when one person hurts, we all hurt; when one person rejoices, we all rejoice. In this day and time, relationships can become tattered. Through the relationship we have with the Father, we can build relationships with others.
White Oak is located in a community - and this community is our focus. On Martin Nash Road in Lilburn, we are blessed to be a "lighthouse on the hill" to minister to our community. We will sponsor community-wide activities - such as, picnics, Easter-egg hunts, Halloween activities, vacation bible schools - just to mention a few. It was not by accident that God led us to this community, it was His divine plan. He says, "Come unto me all you who labor are heavy laden and I will give you rest." - Matthew 11: 28. White Oak Baptist Church desires to provide that love and encouragement to OUR community.
Many churches will offer differing instructional messages. At White Oak, we only follow the command of our lord, "Preach the Word..." - 2 Timothy 4: 2. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." - John 1: 1. If we put these two scriptures together, we are instructed to let the Word speak for Itself. As a Bible believing church, we look to the inspired Word of God for His message for us. As pastor, I will pray continuously for the leadership of the Holy Spirit to give me the Word for the church to hear. If the sheep do not get fed, they will perish. Although sometimes we may not like what we hear from the Word, we must remember, "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." - 2 Timothy 3: 16. If you are looking for a family-oriented church that is centered on the Word of God, and is preached unapologetically, come visit the White Oak family.
