The Great Commandment: “Jesus said, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart. . .soul. . . and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.”  Matthew 22:36-40

The Great Commission: “Jesus said, ‘Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28: 19-20

The decision to join a church is a very important one. We would be excited to welcome you into our fellowship as a member. We respect the importance of that decision and want to be helpful in any way.  For that reason, we offer membership classes for you to learn more about Oakland Community Church. We trust that God’s Spirit will guide you to relate to our church in whatever way is right for you at this time.

Four Basic Membership Classes



Taught by pastors Kent & JoAnne, this class is a basic introduction to our Oakland Church family. It is designed to explain who and what our church is about, where we’ve been, and where God is calling us to go. It is an opportunity to build relationships with others and explore the commitment of church membership.


The focus of this class is on the basic habits Jesus taught his disciples to develop in order to grow to spiritual maturity. This class will equip you with the skills you need to be a follower of Jesus. And it ends with a guarantee: If you develop these disciple habits, you will grow in maturity!


In this class, you will begin to identify your spiritual gifts, your temperament, and talents, and discover how God intends to use your life for his Kingdom. You will have the opportunity to match your talents and gifts with specific ministries and learn more about the many different ministries at Oakland in which you may become involved.



Based on the course, “Becoming a Contagious Christian”, this class identifies the many different faith- sharing methods described in the Bible and helps you determine how God has gifted you to help others trust and follow Christ.
