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!

Eastertide Greetings Oak Lawn Family:
It is so great to worship the Lord together on Easter Sunday.
The Easter story remind us, we live in a world of many challenges and with each passing day, it seems the challenges become more numerous. People are searching for “someone” to lead them out of despair and difficulties in their own lives, yet in reality, this is exactly the way it was in the time Jesus walked the dusty roads of Israel prior to His crucifixion.
The people of that day thought Jesus’ primary purpose was more political in nature than it was spiritual, but they were mistaken profoundly as Jesus declared that His Kingdom was not of this world.
One cannot watch any of the news of the day and not come away with the realization that so many people are struggling on so many levels to find meaning and purpose in life.
Doesn’t that make you so thankful to know what Christ accomplished on the cross, as well as the resurrection three days later?
He arose from the grave so that we could experience meaning and purpose every day!
He didn’t come to this earth so we could recognize the gift of His life on Easter Sunday and then move on. He came so that we can have victory in our own lives on a daily basis! No, that doesn’t mean we won’t have struggles and difficulties, but we can rest assured Jesus will walk through those difficult times with us.
The amazing truth is that Jesus came to give us life after Easter!
I encourage you to join us next Sunday for worship, and the next, and the next, and the next! So together we can continue to worship and serve our Risen Savior.
