Believers Experiencing Life Together
We have many things in common. In one way or another, sin has broken us all much more deeply than we feared, and the love of Christ has healed us more completely than we ever dreamed.
As a community, many of us have had negative experiences in church. We have been burned out by legalistic standards, hurt by people we trusted and left behind by people we thought loved us.
However, we have responded to those disappointments by returning to the source of all truth. Instead of abandoning the Church, we have reformed a community that intends to continually be reforming itself according to the truth.
We are Theologically Conservative: we believe in the authority and infallibility of scripture.
We are Sociologically Liberal: we do not believe every household has to conform to one model.
We are Politically Confused: we know better than to believe we have the answer to all the world's problems.
RiverOaks is connected to the larger body of Christ in a number of ways.
We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). www.pcanet.org
We are also a part of the Acts 29 network, a reformed church planting movement.
RiverOaks was started as a church plant within the Southwest Church planting network (http://plantchurch.org/), a cooperative movement to plant PCA churches within a 4 state area including Oklahoma.
