Oban Baptist Church

Spiritual - Relational - Generational


Text for the Year: Matthew 22v36-39

"Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?"  He (Jesus) said to him, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the greatest and most important command.  The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself."

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)
