Whether you're looking for a home church in the Low Country, looking for churches online, or looking for hope, we're glad you're here. "Where God's grace meets the messiness of life." That's what the front page of this website says. Isn't that what the Church is supposed to be? The church is supposed to be a place where hurt people can find hope. Where the curious can ask questions and seek answers. A messy place where grace intervenes. Live Oak is that place: a unique church that embraces people where they are and loves them. We believe that people can meet Jesus here, and that he can change their lives.
If that sounds interesting to you take a look around our site and feel free to send us your questions. From there, we'd love to meet you on a Sunday morning, when you're ready.
- Pastor Michael
We trust Jesus.
It sounds simple, but the simplicity of this statement doesn't undermine its power or truth. We trust that Jesus was who he said he was - the Messiah. He changed lives 2000 years ago and he continues to change lives today. Because we trust Jesus, we also trust his teachings.
We trust the Bible.
It contains everything needed to get acquainted with God, to live well and to be a great church. The Bible is not only inspiring, it is historically and intellectually sound. Because it was written by dozens of authors over 16 centuries, only God could pull the Bible together. The Bible is a fully-aligned Story of how God is saving the world through Jesus. Yes, parts of it are tough to grasp because we live in a different time and place. However, when the Bible is taught clearly, it is understood and its power to change us is unleashed.
