What if I'm not sure yet? How I can get my questions and concerns answered?
You can schedule a meeting with a minister or elder to get answers to your questions or concerns. Contact us or call at 972-727-2359.
What do you teach about baptism? Would I have to be baptized again in order to be a member here?
Baptism is a “promise made to God from a good conscience” (1 Peter 3:21 GNT). We urge all believers to be baptized (immersed in water) as an outward expression of their inward commitment to place all of their trust in Jesus and to belong completely to him. Those who have already been baptized as a response of their faith in Jesus before coming to Greenville Oaks do not need to be baptized again. For those who are not, we would consider it a privilege to be a part of this important step. You can learn more by attending Discover Greenville Oaks.
What can I do to keep from being lost in the crowd?
The best solution is to connect to one of our Community Groups or Gathering Circles. Serving on a ministry team is an additional way to connect, grow, and serve in this meaningful community.
Can non-members attend Bible classes and Community Groups?
Most definitely. Discover more about all of our current Gathering Circles (a.k.a. Bible classes) and Community Groups.
Can I participate in the communion service even though I am not a member?
Yes. Anyone who is a committed believer in Jesus can join us in celebrating communion.
Do you have instrumental accompaniment during your worship service?
During 9:00 a.m. worship, we sing in an a cappella style and during our 11:00 a.m. worship, we sing with instrumental accompaniment.
How can I get a copy of the message?
Audio and video recordings all available for all messages. Access all of these assets on our media page.
How does the Greenville Oak church relate to other churches and denominations?
We value our heritage within Churches of Christ. We have chosen to emphasize what we have in common with other Christian groups rather than debate about our differences. We try to be “Christians only” and believe that no particular group is designated by God as “the only Christians.” We are non-denominational.
How is your church governed? Who's in charge? How are you organized?
Our church is directed by elders who have been selected by the congregation as servant leaders. Greenville Oaks is autonomous and does not report to any central or district headquarters.
How should I address the ministerial staff?
The ministerial staff prefers to be called by their first names. They prefer not to be addressed as "Reverend" or "Pastor." The term "Pastor" applies to the elders.
When and where can I attend Bible classes?
Greenville Oaks offers "The Gathering" instead of traditional Bible classes for adults at 10:00 a.m. During this time, groups of people (Gathering Circles) meet throughout our campus to engage in conversation, sharing, encouragement, relationship building, mentoring, and much more.
What about Sunday evenings?
Many Community Groups meet on Sunday evenings. Students in 6th through 12th grade meet in groups on Sunday evening. We do not have a Sunday evening worship.
Who do I contact if I have more questions?
We would encourage you to contact us with any additional questions you have.
