PATHWAYS OF DISCIPLESHIP:
We believe that God wants East White Oak Bible Church to be a group of people growing toward maturity in Christ. We believe people are transformed as they experience and contribute to these 3 pathways to discipleship. Our mission is stated well by the Apostle Paul in Colossians 1:28: “Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.” No matter where you are, there is always a “next step” to take.
1. Sunday Worship
The priority of the Sunday morning experience is hearing God speak through the study of His Word, clearly explaining the meaning and application of the text of the Bible. Prayer and singing round out this time dedicated to worshipping the one true God.
2. Bible Fellowships
East White Oak is not the biggest church in America but it is big enough that people could come regularly for Sunday Worship but remain anonymous. Biblical Christianity is not lived out in anonymity. It is lived out in community. Bible Fellowships create environments where relationships are nurtured.
3. Small Groups
There is a depth of “knowing” only achievable in smaller gatherings. Life can get messy and being authentic and open about our messes is usually reserved for only our closest relationships. Sharing the joys, struggles and sorrows of life with other believers should be the experience of every Christ-follower.
