Mission & Vision

Go therefore and make disciples...

The Mission

The mission of Church of the Servant is the same mission Jesus gave his followers: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. 

The Vision

At Church of the Servant, we are committed to partnering with God to create a community of authentic believers, reach the lost, and proclaim the Gospel in our city and world.

our beliefs

We are a United Methodist congregation. To learn about what it means to be United Methodist go to  www.umc.org/en/who-we-are/what-we-believe.

When we say the Apostles’ Creed, we join with millions of Christians through the ages in understanding God as a Trinity – three persons in one: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and His life, death, and resurrection demonstrates God’s redeeming love.

The Holy Spirit is God’s present activity in our midst. When we sense God’s leading, God’s challenge, or God’s support or comfort, it’s the Holy Spirit at work.

Genesis 1:27 asserts that we’ve been made in the image of the Creator. Like God, we have the capacity to love and care, to communicate, and to create.

The Church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today.

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and is the primary authority for our faith and practice.

We believe that…
Through baptism, we are joined with the Church and with Christians everywhere. Baptism is a symbol of new life and a sign of God’s love and forgiveness of our sins. Persons of any age can be baptized. We baptize by sprinkling, immersion, or pouring. A person receives the sacrament of baptism only once in his or her life. If you are interested in becoming baptized, please connect with us by filling out the form below or call the church office at 405-721-4141.

The Lord’s Supper is a holy meal of bread and wine that symbolizes the body and blood of Christ. It recalls the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus and celebrates the unity of all the members of God’s family. By sharing this meal, we give thanks for Christ’s sacrifice and are nourished and empowered to go into the world in mission and ministry. Communion is served in all worship services on the first Sunday of each month.

our story

Est. in 1968

In June of 1968, Norman Neaves came to Oklahoma City with a dream to reach and serve this city for Jesus Christ. On Sunday, September 8, 1968, this dream became a reality, and Servant’s first worship service was born and held on Northwest Expressway with 148 people joining. This dream to reach and serve still lives in the heart of Church of the Servant today. Our prayer and deep desire is to become the hands and feet of Christ in the world. We pray to live out our lives as servants, bringing glory to the ultimate servant, Jesus Christ.

Jesus once said to His disciples, “Whoever would be greatest among you, let him be your servant.” That simple yet profound statement 
has been at the heart and core of our church since its beginning. It is an expression of the essence of our church’s philosophy, and you find it expressed in our name: Church of the Servant.

A great church is not necessarily a church with a large building, a large budget, and a large membership. It is instead, according to Jesus, a church that discovers how to live in the world as a servant of Christ, just as Christ Himself first served His disciples by stooping down to wash their feet. Since our very beginning, we have wanted to place the primary emphasis of our church upon meeting the real needs of people, whoever they might be and whatever their needs might be.
