About the Church

The Lake Oconee church of Christ is a non-denominational congregation located in Greensboro, GA. We have no creed or code except the Bible. We strive to follow the Bible, God’s perfect word, in our worship, leadership and lifestyle.

The Lake Oconee church of Christ has existed in the Lake Oconee area since 1997. People from multiple counties came together with the goal of spreading the truth and helping to establish a light for Christ in Greene County. The current building on Carey Station Road was built in 2005. The congregation is comprised of many loving souls whose main goal is to help others as we traverse this life.

About the Community

A community is defined as people with common interests living in a particular area. However, a community is defined by how it works together in order to accomplish a common goal. The Lake Oconee church of Christ has at its heart a mission to unify the community with one common purpose, by establishing Christ as the pillar by which all of our actions are measured.

Every community faces challenges and no single person can take on those adversities without finding local advocates. There is the role of the individual Christian to do good unto all men, but when individuals have it in their minds to work as a collective great things can be accomplished for the betterment of all within a society. This process begins with finding a need within the community and then utlizing the love and compassion Christ showed to the blind, the lame and downtrodden in order to bring people to a place where they can contribute and interact within that community.

About Abundant Life

Abundant life is about an amazing peace of mind that comes only through a relationship with Jesus Christ. In John chapter ten Jesus introduces those who think they have everything they could ever want to something that surpasses their expectations.

““The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.” (John 10:10–11, NASB95)

What Jesus is trying to communicate gets lost in translation at the end of verse ten. The word translated “abundantly” doesn’t refer merely to life, but rather He wishes for the sheep to have life and have more. He then states that He is willing to lay down His life in order to make this happen for me and you!

As you live your life day to day you can live with full assurance that your life has a purpose worth dying for. You are not just a mass of cells that’s born and then dies. You have a beginning and you have an end that will only mean glory. The steps between those two points are meant to be used in service to the shepherd and those we come in contact with. When we come to Christ we become something more than we were.

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10, NASB95)
