At Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church, we support people as they seek to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are an American Baptist Church in partnerships with American Baptist Churches of Rhode Island and American Baptist Churches, USA. We are ecumenically minded and seek opportunities for worship and service with other community churches.
Our church welcomes diverse families. We provide for Christian Education (Sunday School) for school aged children, as well as a nursery for pre-school children during worship services.
A very important part of our worship at Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church is our music program. We have been blessed with a strong music ministry consisting of a Sanctuary Choir, Hand bell Choir, two organists, and many musically talented members who readily share their gifts during the worship services throughout the year.
At the conclusion of worship every Sunday all are invited to the fellowship hall to join in conversation and refreshments.
Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church is located at 229 Wilbur Avenue in Cranston. We warmly invite you to worship with us on a Sunday morning at 9:30 am. Until then, may our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ richly bless you!
Resurrection greetings Friends!
I would like to take this opportunity to say what a joy it was to have so many friends and visitors with us on Easter Sunday as we celebrated our risen friend and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Without a doubt, the impact this one man named Jesus has had on this world has been without equal or parallel. While there have been other leaders who have lived and influenced humanity, whether it be in a positive or negative way, none of them have died, then risen from the grave.
The Resurrection make all the difference in the world. It is what sets Christianity apart from all other religions of the world. It is what brings light, life and hope to humanity.
The Bible has a lot to say about the importance of the resurrection, with words such as these:
"And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable. But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep." (1 Corinthians 15:17-20)
Aren't you glad today we don't have a "futile faith"?
Aren't you glad we don't have to be "still in our sins"?
Aren't you glad there is more to life than this life we now see?
Because Jesus lives, we live, and have a wonderful eternal destiny awaiting us.
May God bless you as you worship the Risen Savior!
