We come together on Sundays in Wellington from 09h00 – 10h15.
We also meet in Life Groups during the week. Life Groups are how we build family at Oakhill. Here you’ll connect once a week with people in similar stages of life or with similar interests.
To find out how and where you can join the Wellington family on Sundays or during the week in a Life Group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
As for our dress code, there is none. The atmosphere is comfortable and casual, so come as you are.
There are baby/toddler room facilities available. Parents are responsible to supervise their own children.
Oakhill Kids is our children’s ministry. We believe that, even at a young age, children can connect with God in deep and meaningful ways. Each Sunday we have a great time together as we learn more about the Bible with our home-grown curriculum.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and they are one God. (Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven´s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords. (Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13)
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1)
Humans are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. They are the supreme object of God´s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he/she is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates man from God. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2)
Man was created to live forever. He/she will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence. (John 3:16; John 2:25; John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 1 John 5:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46)
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his/her sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God´s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin´s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1)
The believer’s eternity is secure, because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security. (John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10,14; 1 Peter 1:3-5)
The Bible is God´s Word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. It is truth without any mixture of error, because it is inspired by God. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)
Water baptism or full immersion in water, is an act of Biblical obedience that is a symbolic sign of the believer’s death, burial and resurrection in Christ Jesus. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-4)
At the time of His ascension into Heaven Jesus Christ gifted the church with living ministry expressions of Himself through apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, for the building up of the Body of Christ and the equipping of the believers to the work of service. It is the commission of the Church to go into the whole world to preach the gospel and extend the Kingdom of God. (Ephesians 4:11-13; Matthew 24:14)
RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST
The Bible speaks of the physical and triumphant return of Jesus to an overcoming and glorious Church. (1 Thessalonians 4: 14-18)
