Mission statement: To Know Christ and to Make Him Known
Welcome to Oxford and Little River Baptist Churches Web Pages. Jesus in His High Priestly Prayer in John 17:13 declares, "I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them." (Todayís New International Version). The words of Jesus and indeed all of Holy Scripture are to give to each of us the full measure of Christís joy within us. I hope and pray that each of you may experience the joy of Jesus Christ in your own life to the fullest.
We are not the biggest churches in the world nor are we the smallest. We are not the churches with the best of this or that. We are churches full of people who acknowledge that each of us are sinners with our share of bruises and yet we know that Christ calls us on a journey away from the sinful life to experience His complete joy.
Have you experienced that joy? It is our prayer that in these pages and through the various links that you would know something about our church, but, more importantly, that you would know, in an experiential way, the Lord of the Church, Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah or Anointed One.
