Oakwood Bible Church

Who We Are
Oakwood Bible Church exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ in obedience to the Great Commission (Mt. 28:16-20)—and that's the heart behind everything we do. We are a Bible-believing community of faith that longs to see lives transformed by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We want to create an environment in which people are challenged and encouraged to trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord, find Christ-centered community, and grow as followers of Christ.


The church is historically connected to the Oakwood neighborhood of Kalamazoo, Michigan, having begun in 1915 when a group of neighbors began to meet. Their passion was to reach their community with the gospel through the teaching of God’s Word.


Oakwood Bible Church remains committed to the fundamental doctrines of Christian faith, including the doctrine of the inspiration and authority of the Bible in all matters of faith and practice.
