Oban Baptist Church

Spiritual - Relational - Generational

Our Vision and Mission

The Oban Baptist Church family is Spiritual. We are committed to facilitating the active work of the Holy Spirit, operating in and through all who profess Jesus as Saviour and Lord. We view and value each other in accordance with God’s Word: that everyone in Christ is called by God and gifted by the Spirit to actively function as a member of Christ’s body, the Church.

The Oban Baptist Church family is Relational. We understand that relationship matters amongst those called to lay down their lives, as living sacrifices, for Christ and each other. We prioritise the deepening of relationships in every aspect of our church life, because we understand that every single member of the body of Christ has significant intrinsic value, worth and purpose in the eyes of God.

The Oban Baptist Church family is Generational. This is a true reflection of the Body of Christ, comprising the youngest to the oldest, the spiritually new in faith to the spiritually mature. We are passionate about the role of the generations in the journey of faith, understanding that every individual across every generation has the potential to impact all others for the benefit of God’s Kingdom.


Text for the Year: Romans 8v14 (NASB 2020)

"For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons and daughters of God."

As part of the network of Baptist Churches across Scotland, we are committed to being Intentionally Relational, Unashamedly Missional and Creatively Rooted.  How are these principles demonstrated here within the life of Oban Baptist Church?

Intentionally Relational:  We choose to be purposeful and positive in our engagement with each other, with local churches and with the community, so as to reflect the love and truth of God in all that we do.

Unashamedly Missional:  We are actively engaged in both local, national and international expressions of mission, as part of the call of God to take the gospel of Jesus Christ out into the world (Matthew 28) and for the advancement of God's Kingdom.

Creatively Rooted:  We treasure the blessing of being able to serve our community, with its rich history and vibrancy.  We understand that God has a vision for Oban and surrounding areas, which is worked out in a manner specific to our own culture and community. 

We are also passionate about playing our part in building bridges across 

the denominations, in order that the local community can see 

the evidence of the Scripture that states:

"By this all will know that you are My disciples,

if you have love for one another."

(John 13v35)
