Chase Oaks Church DNA 

  • We Keep It Simple. We seek to do a few things well.
  • We’re All In The Same Boat. We are all on a journey of transformation.
  • We Boycott Boycotts. We are known for what we are for, not what we are against.
  • We Glow In The Dark. We move into hopelessness, need and injustice with the redeeming power of Jesus Christ.
  • This Is Not Our Party. This is the Father’s party, and we are His servants, privileged to prepare the party and invite the guests.
  • We Don’t Go It Alone. We do life together in groups, ministry in teams and serve our community.
  •   Pass The   Baton. We invest in the next generation and give influence to emerging   leaders.
  • We Are A Salad, Not A Soup. We are intentionally diverse, believing that the mix of generations, ethnicities, and cultures helps create the rich and surprising unity Jesus Prayed for in John 17.
  • We Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff. We strive to focus on our common mission and core biblical beliefs.
  • We Count The Change. As the agents of God’s redemption on this broken planet, our effectiveness is measured by both personal and community transformation.
