OTHER TIMES:  Sunday Evening Discipleship @ 5:00PM  & “Pastor’s Corner Live”- Wednesday Evenings @ 6:15 

OAK RIDGE BAPTIST CHURCH (ORBC)

Welcome to ORBC – where every week is a Family Reunion! ORBC is made up of families of all ages and dynamics who want to do life God’s way. We discover God’s way by studying the Bible corporately and in small group settings designed to connect with you where you are. Whether you’re just starting to explore a relationship with Christ, a new believer, or more mature in your walk with God, ORBC has a place for you.

We enjoy connecting as a family at our church and in the community –  through worship experiences, fellowship events and ministry opportunities that the whole family can enjoy.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Senior Pastor
Dr. Galen K. Cooper

Pastor Galen’s heart for ORBC is to be a family (of all ages) who lives its faith in such a way that people simply see Jesus. His desire is that those who find a home in this family would see a transformation in their “marriages and relationships, classrooms, and locker rooms, putting greens and baseball diamonds” because of the love of Christ in their lives. He welcomes all to ORBC’s “Weekly Family Reunion”, as he lovingly calls it, to spend time together in worship and Bible study.

Commandments of Men: When Christians Embrace Legalism

Christians are all too familiar with legalism, a philosophy that obsesses over every detail (or perceived detail) in the Bible and often holds up a total agreement with all of it as a requirement for salvation. Considering how often this term is misapplied, it bears a...

What Role Does “Tradition” Play in the Church?

Even the most modern and “hip” churches rely on tradition in some capacity. Of course, the exact extent depends on the church leadership and members, but you’d be hard-pressed to find any church that didn’t incorporate traditional activities or methodology somewhere....

Uncomfortable Truths vs. Gossip

Most people would agree that gossip is a bad thing. Spreading exaggerated or scandalous information about another person is, for the most part, frowned up. Many churches even spend more time focused on the “sin of gossip” than on other, more easily defined problems....

What a great church. Lotsa programs for people who like bible study. Pastor always preaches straight from the bible and encourages you to follow along in your own bible so you know he is speaking word and not opinion. Multiple worship services. Friendly atmosphere.

My family and I cannot say enough good about Pastor Galen, his family, the church and everyone who works and attends this church. I love being a part of the church family reunion every week. My kids also can't wait to go to church every week. Wonderful children's programs! My 1 year old, 5 year old and 11 year old fit in so well and feel welcome every time they walk in the door. Also, Pastor Galen just got his Doctrine!! He is so passionate in his sermons and extremely knowledgeable. He breaks down the bible and teaches straight from the bible. I also love the music. You can really feel the spirit of Gods presence in the room. Thank you Pastor Galen for all you do for our family and the community.

We worked with the Oak Ridge Baptist team building their website and have worked with them since maintaining their website and providing marketing strategies and needs. They are a great bunch to work with and handle their business on a personal yet very professional level.

Chris Chapel
