It is our earnest desire to share the grace and truth of Jesus Christ with the world while serving Southwest Arlington, Kennedale, and Mansfield as a beacon of hope and light.

We believe church should be enjoyable and meaningful. Because of this, you will find at South Oaks a warm and friendly atmosphere. You’ll enjoy the contemporary blended praise music and challenging messages from the Bible that relate to the daily challenges we all experience.

You’ll find a friend, people just like yourself, who are seeking meaning for life, a place of service, a place to care for others and be cared for. And you’ll find the joy that comes from sharing Bible study experiences and worship with others whom you have grown very close. What are you waiting for? We have a seat reserved just for you! Come join us this week!

Meanwhile, we invite you to get to know more about our church through this site. Explore, check us out, but most importantly, come see us this Sunday! We will be looking for you!

At South Oaks, we love meeting new friends!
