Olivet Bible Church began in July 2018 with one vision: to grow in the depth of God through His Word, to engage as a community of believers, & to equip members for the sake of the Kingdom throughout the world. The Fox Cities are booming and in desperate need of the Gospel. We have been called out of the darkness and into a LIVING HOPE! At Olivet Bible Church, we are passionate about personal spiritual development, communal worship, discipleship, and evangelism. Because He has pulled us out of the grave, we joyfully respond in faith and obedience for His glory!
On Sundays, we join together through three intentional movements of worship:
MUSICAL WORSHIP & COMMUNION- Through a collection of hymns and contemporary worship songs, participate communally to glorify God. We believe our worship must reflect, as one body (of all ages), rejoicing and lamenting as laid out in Scripture (1 Cor. 12:25-26, Psalm 102). In addition, each Sunday, we come to the table together. All believers, regardless of church membership, are invited to partake of the Lord’s Supper.
FELLOWSHIP- We have intentionally created a space “as iron sharpens iron”, to worship the Lord through the encouragement and exhortation of fellow believers in the midst of our worship service. Regardless of life circumstance, we are called to share in one another’s burdens and to rejoice with one another. This time is carved out for the benefit of “doing life” together (Eccl. 4:0-12, Gal. 6:2).
EXPOSITORY PREACHING and SCRIPTURAL TEACHING-
Adults- If we can commit to knowing one thing in this life, it should be the Scriptures! . At Olivet Bible Church, we take into consideration biblical culture and customs, original languages, and the history of the church to "rightly divide the Word of Truth" in our preaching (2 Timothy 2:15). The entirety of the Bible is the foundation for the development of our Christian faith and life of holiness. If we believe what Christ says in Matthew 4, that "man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God”, then our joyful responsibility is to know and delight in the Word of God!
Children- In our large group, we mix various age groups together for the mutual encouragement of their faith (Romans 1:12). Children cannot possibly learn to be like Jesus without understanding the character of God, and that’s exactly what we reinforce every Sunday as partners with Olivet Parents. We must teach and encourage entire Bible teaching through every Sunday lesson. We support Olivet Parent’s introduction of biblical teaching at home, by creating space for discussion together, while maintaining developmentally appropriate engagement and activities.
Whether you are just beginning to be drawn to Jesus, are new to your faith, or have been pursuing Christ for years, we invite you to join us this Sunday! We look forward to meeting you as we Pursue Holiness Together!
