When you’ve seen a disaster on the news in the last 50 years, what you may not have seen is the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers who were already on the scene—and they remained long after news cameras left town. As the third-largest disaster response team in the nation, this network of state-based volunteers teams does more than just clean up; they bring the healing of Christ to those whose lives have been shattered.
Oak Creek has a trained Disaster Relief Team, and hosts training for those interested in helping. Our team has helped all over the state and country; cleaning up flood damage, chainsaw work on downed trees, and more. Please pray for Disaster Relief teams as they bring God's tangible love to those in times of need
Our church strategy for missions is built around four objectives:
Oak Creek has been a part of seeking to start other congregations to reach our area. We have sponsored a Korean church start that currently meets in Granger, an urban church plant meeting on the west side of South Bend, and a church plant in the western region of Michiana.
We give consistently to the Cooperative Program, an association of like-minded churches that are reaching out in North America and internationally with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We also have direct involvement in Haiti yearly, sending teams of doctors and nurses, builders, and others from Oak Creek who seek to support the mission of the Church in this struggling country.
We take seriously the command of Jesus who said, “Go and make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28:19)
