Our History and Heritage
The Greenville Oaks Church of Christ began with seven families in July 1986. Those families envisioned a church, with solid Biblical foundation, where Allen area families would experience real, authentic relationships with God and each other. It would be where people come and find hope and salvation in Jesus Christ.
They first met in members’ homes and soon moved into a day-care center and then into a storefront facility. A church building was purchased in 1989 which served as the church’s home until 2001 when the first phase of the current building was built at 703 South Greenville Avenue in Allen. The second phase, which was completed in early 2006, doubled the size of the building.
That original group of seven families and one Lord has grown to a congregation of more than 380 families with more than 825 people worshipping, praying, studying and serving together.
As we minister in the 21st century we are strengthened by our deep roots and firm foundation, standing firm on the solid rock of the redemption and love of Jesus Christ our Lord. We are excited as we face the future with hope and pledge to keep the faith, to honor the trust of our heritage while reaching out to touch our neighbors in our time.
