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!
Isn’t there just something beautiful about spring? Whether a person lives in a warmer climate or they’ve endured months of snow and high winds, there’s just something about this time of year that is exciting and life giving.
Spring is also an exciting time of year as we celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of our Friend and Savior, Jesus Christ! Without a doubt, when coupled with His birth, these two events have shaped this world in ways one cannot even imagine as His life impacted so many in that day, as well as down through the ages.
Extremists in some parts of the world would like to eliminate the voice of the Christian. This means persecution for some and even at times, paying the ultimate sacrifice with their lives.
Have you ever stopped to think of what a world without God’s people would look like? I don’t know about you, but that’s a thought I wouldn’t want to dwell on for too long. Sin running rampant without any resistance would not be a world I would want to live in.
The Bible tells us this in John 10:10;
“The thief cometh not but to steal and to kill and to destroy. I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Fortunately, our God is an awesome God, who is an incredible Giver.
God gave His Son to this world as we know from John 3:16, and then Jesus gave His life for the sins of all humanity. Regardless of who they are, where they live, or the seriousness of their transgression... Jesus gave His all!
In this post-resurrection season I would like to encourage you to journey with us as we continue to worship, serve, and share the good news of the Risen Christ.
