WHO WE ARE
No matter who you are or where you’re at in life, you are welcome. Our mission is simple: To bring people that are far from God close to Him.
One Oak will be a life giving, Spirit empowered church, living a blessed life found in Jesus. We want you to feel welcome, comfortable and loved. You are invited to join with us and discover you were made to belong.
JESUS: IS EVERYTHING
Jesus is the point of life. The purpose of One Oak Church is to share the hope of Jesus. Jesus is our message. We are Jesus people, not religious people.
PEOPLE: ARE OUR HEART
Love God, love others. Our heart is for ALL people. All people are loved by Jesus. PEOPLE MATTER! All for the ONE to lead people to the ONE. We make no apologies for being specifically focused on reaching those far away from God. We desire to bring the broken home at all costs. We believe that our light is best seen in the night. We believe families are something to be celebrated! Everyone has a family, and whether your family is more “traditional” or something that looks completely different, you matter to us. It’s our hope that you would experience the love, purpose, and growth that God desires for your family. Diversity: is our image. We are a multi-cultural, multi-generational community.
SERVANT LEADERSHIP: IS OUR IDENTITY
The best seat in the house is the seat of service. If you’re too big to serve then you are too small to lead. We believe the greatest leadership is service to others. Every leader is a servant first. If you do little things like they are big things, God will do big things like they are little things!
GENEROSITY: IS OUR PRIVILEGE
Every good and perfect gift comes from above. Generosity is about giving more than what is required. We see generosity as a privilege. We believe it is our calling to be generous with all that we have. We believe that generosity is contagious, and as we flood our city with the generosity of Christ, others will want to join in!
HONOR: IS OUR COMMITMENT
We are vocal with honor. Meaning, we say it and display it. Honor everyone – everyone honors! Excellence is our spirit at One Oak. We are going to always do the best with what we have. Excellence honors God and God honors excellence. Full of Grace and Truth is our Hope. We give unending second chances while pointing people to a better way. We strive to be healthy physically, spiritually and relationally.
PASSION: IS OUR PURSUIT
Everything we do, we do it with passion. Philippians 2:5 (NLT) says, “You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.” Risk taking is our responsibility. As soon as you are no longer willing to take a RISK, you become one. We refuse to play it safe when it comes to reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus. Whatever it takes is what we live by. Fun is our attitude. If you can’t have fun in church and serving God, then we’ve missed it. One Oak will be a place where we laugh, live, and do life together.
OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE:
TO BRING PEOPLE THAT ARE FAR FROM GOD CLOSE TO HIM.
WE LOVE THIS CITY.
We believe this city has begun a resurgence, and we want to be a part of it. We want to share the hope and life of Jesus with the entire Detroit area and beyond.

JOIN THE TEAM
When was the last time you did something for the first time? Join us on this journey to show that Jesus is our hope, and that everyone belongs. If this sounds like a team you want to be a part of, we want to connect with you!
Whatever your gifting, there is a place for you on the One Oak team! We are passionate, committed and determined to go the distance TOGETHER!
We know we can’t do this alone. We believe God has called us all to live generously. We can’t all give the same amount, but we can all give sacrificially and extravagantly in our own capacities. Our prayer is that you would partner with us financially to help build a church that reaches the city of Detroit and helps the lives of individuals, families, and communities be transformed with the hope of the gospel.
This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing with us great praise to God.
2 Corinthians 9:6-11 (The Message)
