Pursuing Jesus Christ, building His kingdom, and proclaiming His offer of freedom, healing, and life!

Training Ground

Oil City Community Alliance Church recognizes that we, the Church, have been given a task of “making disciples” (Matthew 28:19-20) and “proclaiming the Kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:2)  We see these tasks as being in direct conflict with the enemy of our soul(s), Satan, himself (Acts 10:38) who will come against us to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10)  These important missions require us to “be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might”.  As Christians, we are commanded to take up our weapons so that we can stand firm against this struggle of the spiritual forces of wickedness.” (Ephesians 6:10-13)
Training Ground is our tactic of making sure God’s people are equipped with the tools and weapons they need to do battle for their heart and the hearts of the lost who God has commanded us to reach with His gospel.  Just as the majority would not presume to enter any secular profession unprepared and would pursue and value a proper education; likewise, let us not take lightly the need to examine our spiritual readiness and spiritual education as we become a part of the greatest adventure and purpose of our life… to push back the darkness with the light of Christ.  Join us as we train together for this important mission!
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians. 6:11
