welcome to our church
Greetings in the joy of our Redeemer and Liberator, Jesus the Christ! Welcome to our community of faith. No matter what you’ve been through or where you come from, you are welcome here.
Live Oak AME Church is building a vibrant, faith community where people can come as they are, meet Jesus, grow in their faith, and find a place to serve.
Join us for a Sunday gathering and experience the love of God that transforms lives. We welcome you to partner with us and join our fellowship. Here are ways of partnering with us in ministry through membership.
Persons joining into full membership from other denominations are enrolled in New Members class. Converts are placed on probation under the care of a Class Leader for three (3) months. At the end of that period, if all qualifications for membership are met, they are accepted into full membership. If a person has not been baptized, then he/she will meet with the pastor to undergo baptismal counseling and be baptized before being taken into full membership.(There are three modes of Baptism: Sprinkling, Pouring, and Immersion.)
Persons who are members of another AME Church but live far from that Church can join as affiliated members. This allows them all the rights of membership while they also maintain membership in their home Church.
Membership can be transferred from one AME Church to another. Persons joining into full membership who are transferring from another AME Church can be received into full membership.
