We are honored to have a moment to introduce you to Black Oak Baptist Church. Whether you would describe yourself as a new believer, a seasoned Christian, or somewhere in between, you are welcome here! Our church family is warm and loving, and we want you to feel comfortable and at liberty to call on us for anything you need.

When you come to Black Oak Baptist, you'll find a caring congregation that will gladly welcome you. You'll hear Bible-centered teaching and preaching that will encourage and challenge you, regardless of where you find yourself; and we provide ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age. You'll experience an opportunity for truth-filled and moving praise and worship, blending traditional and contemporary music styles. Lastly, you'll enjoy a comfortable and mostly informal atmosphere, so feel free to come as you are — don't worry about dressing up.

We invite you to browse through the various areas of our website. This may be a good place to start if this is your first time here.

Because He Lives,
