discipling members towards spiritual maturity, ministry excellence, and loving relationships

Through the Spirit of the Ministry, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship seeks to cultivate an environment that’s conducive to discipling members towards spiritual maturity, ministry excellence, and loving relationships.
