Our Purpose

Orange Avenue Baptist Church is located in one of the fastest growing communities in America.  As housing and commercial developments replace orange groves, there will soon be a new harvest; not of citrus, but of families and friends. Citizens that establish homes in St. Lucie County need employment, roads, stores, hospitals, etc.  Yet, more urgent than these, our neighbors need the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. God has placed before Orange Avenue Baptist an open door that no man can shut.  The Father calls us to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ found in John 3:16!  He is the only Savior and Lord for all humanity.


 

Our Vision

Our mission is the Great Commission:

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:18-20 KJV

The Great Commandment:

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Matthew 22:37-40 KJV

We are ambassadors for Christ!

The Father has included us in the process of reconciling the word unto Him. We are called to live for the Son of God and His Father’s glory.  We must point men and women to Jesus Christ and equip and empower those that demonstrate a heart for God.  The Christ of Calvary and the empty tomb is worthy of worship and loyal service.


Our Goal

“Changing the world one child at a time.”
