Oak Grove Baptist Church in Fincherville

Striving to become the church of choice for this generation.


Focalize – to align your sight to a focal point (The Vision)

  • Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not to your understanding. In ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path,
  • No man CAN SERVE TWO masters. A house DIVIDED will fall.
  • Where there is UNITY, there is STRENGTH.

Objective – the goal of your actions (The Mission)

  • Enhance Spiritual Worship (enhance means: to raise to a higher degree)
  • Enhance Christian Service. (Grow our Church)

Concentrateintensify your efforts to fulfill the mission

  • Pray and Fast for wisdom and strength. To turn our church around in terms of membership lost and  spirituality  we got to P.U.S.H our way through. (pray until something happen)

Un-ambiguousno uncertainty or doubt as to the desired outcome (The Mission)

  • Have a made-up mind about: Don’t double minded, divisive, or subversive. Know:
  1. What we are doing?
  2. Why we are doing this?
  3. How we are doing this?
  4. When we are doing it?
  5. The benefits of our efforts

Ezekiel 36:22-32 (KJV)
22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went. 
23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord God, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. 
24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. 
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. 
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. 
29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you. 
30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen. 
31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations. 
32 Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord God, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
