Our Story

How it all started...

February 11, 2007, 57 seekers of truth stepped out on faith and met with Pastor Paul Day and his family at the Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Duncanville, Texas. Fueled by a burning desire to think differently about the possibilities of salvation and to become closer to the word of God, the story began for Oak Gardens Church.  Anchored in this authentic desire for truth and empowerment, the church’s membership grew, and its true mission began to manifest; invest in our youth and become a beacon of love and outreach to the community.
In 2010, guided by a burning desire to align with the word of God and the countless examples of his grace, the Oak Gardens body of believers was blessed to purchase a church home at 4008 S. Polk St. The initial phase of construction consisted of the construction of an auditorium, fellowship hall, and pastor’s study. The second phase, immediately thereafter, was focused on the development of a state-of-the-art children’s/youth wing, and the third phase emphasized the church’s emphasis on social interactions and the pursuit of knowledge with a cafe and bookstore.
To date, the church has grown to nearly 1,600 members and services that emphasize a personal relationship with our Savior. Community outreach through service and love has become a cornerstone characteristic of the church. Each year, we sponsor a “Back to School Shoe Drive” in August, community car washes, movie nights, free concerts, and a food pantry, which is open every third Wednesday of the month.
We invite any and everyone to join us on this journey. as we work every day to become better than we were yesterday in pursuit of God’s inspiration and grace, anchored in the courageous dream of those 57 seekers of truth who came together on February 11, 2011, to do God’s will.
