Oak Hill Christian Service Camp exists to serve the community by providing camp facilities and Christian programs to challenge campers to accept Christ and become active Christians in their communities and schools.
Planting seeds that will grow.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus is the Son of God. His birth was divine. His life reveals God’s will for us; and is our example. He died for our sins, and rose again to become our living Savior. He ascended to Heaven from which we confidently expect His Personal Return at any time, as He promised. [John 14:1-3]
THE CHURCH is His Body. It was divinely established. It is commissioned of Christ to go and tell “the Good News” to the whole creation. Christ is the Head of the Church. Division of His Body is sinful, and hinders evangelism.
MEMBERS are added to the Church (His Body, Family, Kingdom) by Christ only if they meet His terms of admission, which is God’s way to become a Christian:
By Hearing the Good News and Believing it by Faith [Acts 16:30-31; Romans 10:17]
By Repenting (turning and forsaking sin) [Acts 2:38, 17:30; Luke 13:3]
By Confession [Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 10:32]
By Baptism (burial in water) [Acts 2:38, 41; 8:35-39; Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:12]
BAPTISM is for believers only. It is an immersion in water for the remission of sins. We rise from the water in newness of life as a born-again believer. [John 3:5]
THE COMMUNION is an act of worship. It is a meeting of believers to keep the blood covenant until Christ’s return. It is a memorial of Christ’s death for our sins, and is observed every Lord’s Day. [Acts 20:7; I Corinthians 11:23-32]
THE BIBLE IS GOD’S WORD and is our absolute Authority. The New Testament is especially important for us, as it contains Christ’s teachings, the beginning of His Church, the divine instruction manual for a happy Christian life. It assures us of the ultimate victory of Christ and His Church. [2 Timothy 3:16-17]
CHRISTIANS are meant to grow in character and in strength. This is accomplished by:
A life of faith and service every day (also seen in church involvement).
Faithfulness to the Church.
Daily prayer and Bible reading, which develops Christ-like spirit that helps others to believe in and accept the Lord. A daily quiet time is a must.
Separation from the world.
AN INVITATION: If you are not a Christian, you may become such by obeying God’s plan of salvation. This obedience will make you a member of His Body (the Church). Christ invites you through us . . . will you accept Him today?
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another. (John 13:34-35)
May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that You sent Me and have loved them even as you have loved Me. (John 17:23)
But the time is coming–it has, in fact, come–when what you’re called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter. “It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. (John 4:23)
These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. (Deuteronomy 6:6-9)
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
What ever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. (Colossians 3:23-24)
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. (Romans 12:3)
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. (Hebrews 12:1)
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
But just as you excel in everything–in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us — see that you also excel in this grace of giving. (2 Corinthians 8:7)
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. (1 Peter 4:10)
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.” (Ephesians 6:18)
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. (John 15:7)
