The leaders of the church are not the only ones doing the work of service or ministry. The leaders are given to the church for the purpose of preparing every member to do the ministry––to render service to the Lord, to the church, and to the world. We are striving to have each and every member serving actively in ministry according to the gifts that God has given them.
It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service [diakonia], so that the body of Christ may be built up. Ephesians 4:11-12
In our fast-paced, high-tech world, we often fail to recognize that God is intricately involved in the details of our lives. Yet not only is God involved in our daily routines, but He also wants us to be aware of and responsive to His presence.

The purpose of the Mission and Outreach Ministry is to reach those who are outside the walls of our Church with the message and the love of Jesus Christ. We do this by ministering to all we meet. The purpose of missions and outreach at Oakland Baptist Church is to train and equip ordinary people to go and do extraordinary things in the name of Jesus so that all might see, hear and experience God’s love in tangible ways.
