About Us

Welcome to West Oakland Church of Christ

 

Logo

woco logo (2)

The West Oakland Church of Christ has a custom logo. The logo is used in the bulletin, on the website, leadership business cards, banners, email signatures, desktop background, etc. The logo is a custom design that was influenced by the vision of the leadership. The logo symbolizes the growth, spiritual gifts process, and baptismal redemption through Christ. The seven stones represent the seven spiritual gifts, the red represents the blood of Christ, the water is that of baptism, the figures

in the middle depict growth (a person being baptized), and the radiant sun in the middle represents the light of God and the fact that we are the light of the world.

 

Mission

Our ultimate goal is to be unified in intentional ministry purpose. We want every member knowing and living the mission, vision, three priority areas, and functions of the congregation. We’re not striving to do several things with mediocrity. We seek to do three things exceptionally. Our mission is to go T.E.A.CH. (Tell Everyone About CHrist) and L.I.F.T. (Labor In Fellowship Together)

 

Vision

Every member of the West Oakland church of Christ will enhance intimate congregational communion, while having an active presence in the community as biblically equipped saints engaged in life-changing evangelism.
