What We Believe

We believe in God, the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, each with distinct attributes but without division of nature, three in one. God reveals Himself to us through His creation, through prayer, and through the scriptures. We believe that all scripture is God-breathed, and thus is living, active, without error, and is our only authority. Through the Holy Bible God has revealed that:
The only one true and Holy God is the Creator, Sustainer, and Ruler of all things that exist; Man was created in the image of God; however, due to his willful rebellion, lost fellowship with God;
Because of His love, grace, and mercy, God sent His only Son to earth to die on the cross as a substitute for our sins, and then He raised Jesus in victory over death to redeem us from slavery to sin;
Only through confession and repentance of our sins and surrendering our lives to faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior can we be forgiven and receive God’s free gift of salvation and eternal life;
Baptism is a public testimony of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, and of the believer’s own death to the old life and resurrection to a new life in Christ;
The Holy Spirit indwells the believer and through his guiding and empowering presence the believer is able to live the new life in Christ;
All authority belongs to Jesus, His Son; therefore, He deserves our absolute obedience in order to reflect His holiness and His character to a lost world and to bring honor to the Father;
He gathers us as baptized believers into a fellowship of unity called the church to exalt Him in shared worship to participate in the Lord’s Supper to remember Jesus’ death and look forward to His second coming and to exercise our spiritual gifts for the common good of the body; and
As God’s co-workers, we are to fulfill the commission to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them, and teaching them to obey everything Christ commanded.
This church also agrees with the doctrinal statements of The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963.

Church History

Black Oak Heights Baptist Church began in May 1946 as the result of six members of Oakwood Baptist Church working to establish a church in the area. These members originally met in homes for prayer meeting and Sunday School. Eventually in a tent erected on the property for worship.
After the church was organized membership was opened and twenty-five people joined the six charter members. The total membership that day was thirty-one with the church’s initial offering of $31.00 being sent to the Cooperative Program.
The first structure was the basement of our present chapel. The church ordained Bro. J.J. Bingham as its first pastor. The original sanctuary, including our first baptistery, was built in 1952 and is now Bingham Chapel. Members were previously baptized in Beaver Creek. Bingham Chapel presently serves as a meeting place for Children’s Church. In 1969 our Educational Building, which included much-needed classrooms, was completed.
Black Oak Heights has grown from the original six members to over eighteen hundred at present. The first auditorium seated 120. The present auditorium, completed in 1978, accommodates over 1200.
In 1999, our Family Life Center was completed through the generous offerings of our congregation. The Family Life Center includes a gymnasium, fellowship hall, kitchen, and offices for our staff.
May these blessings of the past serve to continually challenge us to follow God’s plan to go forth and preach the gospel, “baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”
