who are we?

Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbyterian Church USA, which has more than 2.5 million members and roots that date back to the 16th century.  We are a member of Salem Presbytery, which gives us the ability to access—and to contribute to—best practices for being the church in the world today.

Our Vision is to be a worshiping, loving, learning, growing, giving Christian community.  


Our Mission is to honor and glorify God through faithful worship, caring discipleship, and devoted service.

We are a group of people seeking to follow Jesus Christ together.  Our Sunday morning worship service at 10 a.m. is a blend of different styles with a casual feel welcoming people of all ages.  Kids are encouraged to come!  Our commitment to mission extends beyond the walls of the church to Oak Ridge and surrounding communities and to places such at Chiapas, Mexico. We walk together in faith supporting each other and having fun too!

On December 4, 1994, with around one hundred members, Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church was officially chartered by the Salem Presbytery. Just three years later, the church broke ground and dedicated their brand new building, in which worship still happens today.
