Great Oaks is a church where we encourage you to take your next step towards God. That vision drives each ministry or event such as our services, outreach, next steps, teaching, and evangelism. Moving from death to life, seeing people saved by Jesus Christ, helping believers grow as disciples—the Christian life is marked by taking that next step towards God.
This statement best expresses this: We as a church exist to engage people and help them STEP IN, to a relationship with Jesus Christ, STEP UP into authentic spiritual maturity, and STEP OUT, to use their SHAPE to engage and minister to people in the world.
We are a church that has a compelling and growing children’s and student ministries along with a network of adult small groups, which meet, throughout our area.
We are located in the growing community of Germantown Hills in central Illinois. Germantown Hills is known as a great community to raise a family in with an excellent public school system. We are approximately 10 minutes from Peoria, which is the headquarters of Caterpillar International.
