What to Expect
When you come to Oil City Assembly of God Church you can expect to be greeted by a friendly face and
a “Church family” who are genuinely glad to have you here. As you enter the building you are welcome
to a hot cup of coffee. On Sundays we have amazing small groups which begin at 10:00am where
everyone (Nursery thru Adult) can participate in hands on learning and discussions with others who are
at their same level. We call these groups Sunday School classes. Following Sunday School we have a
Morning Worship Service that begins at 11:00am and lasts until approximately 12:30pm. You are
welcome to come just for Morning Service, but you will have more of a chance to get to know others if
you are able to attend our morning Small Group Classes as well.
We are a come as you are Church where you will find many different styles of dress on a Sunday
morning, everything from jeans and t-shirts to some in jackets and ties. Feel free to dress however
makes you feel comfortable yet modest; you do not need “church clothes” to join us!
If you are a first time guest, we ask that you fill out a welcome card and turn it in to a team member who
will give you a small gift as a thank you for joining us in worship.
What We Believe
The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.
There is only One True God – revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ - as God's son Jesus was both human and divine.
Though originally good, Man Willingly Fell to Sin ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
Every person can have restored fellowship with God through Salvation - accepting Christ's offer of forgiveness for sin.
We practice two ordinances: (1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.
The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is ‘Speaking in Tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.
Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christlike.
The Church and its Mission is to seek and save all who are lost in sin.
The Ministry - A divinely called and scripturally ordained leadership ministry serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, and to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church.
Divine Healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ's atonement
The Blessed Hope—When Jesus Raptures His Church Prior to His Return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.
The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. At that time many in the nation of Israel will recognize and accept Him as the Messiah, the Savior who died for them and all mankind.
The Final Judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.
New Heavens and a New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. And so shall we forever be with the Lord!
