THE OAKS COMMUNITY CHURCH EXISTS
FOR THE BEAUTY OF GOD,
THE GOOD OF DENVER,
AND THE JOY OF ALL NATIONS.

We believe the good news about Jesus is an announcement that not only creates, motivates, and sustains life together as a community, but that this good news also has implications for our city and the world. The Oaks does not exist for itself, but rather for the joy of the people in our neighborhoods and ultimately to the ends of the earth. 

Why Denver?

Denver is one of the most strategic cities in North America today for gospel advancement and global impact. The beauty and opportunities of this city draw thousands of new residents each year from all over the world with promises of an unmatched quality of life. Yet many find that in spite all Denver has to offer, it is unable to satisfy the deep desires of the soul. Many find themselves lonely and in a tireless pursuit of awe and pleasure. We believe this brokenness is a context where the gospel can shine, as the beauty of Jesus is experienced through a community shaped by the good news.
