Welcome to Oakland Church of the Brethren!


Oakland is a growing, vital congregation who desires to welcome all people into God’s family. Its roots in the Harris Creek Church of the Brethren, Oakland began as a separate congregation in 1865, growing to a current size of 500 active members.

Oakland values:

  • A deep and active relationship with God;
  • A deep and active relationship with one another;
  • A commitment to serve the community and world;
  • A commitment to welcome all people with the love of Jesus Christ.

We believe in a loving, faithful God who through Jesus, lived, died, and is risen to offer all people salvation and meaningful life today. We believe the Holy Spirit guides and gives us power to fulfill God’s purposes for us. We believe the Bible is God’s living Word and guide for our lives, and through the church community we work together to continue the work of Jesus in the world.

At Oakland you will find ministries and opportunities for all ages, meaningful worship, and a safe place to encounter God’s healing love. Please come and be a part of Oakland’s family!
