The Oak Ridges Church is a member congregation of the Be in Christ Church of Canada ( BIC ).

A unique aspect of the Be in Christ Church of Canada is the rich blend of theological traditions that make us who we are today. Specifically, the movement is shaped by three emphases within the wider Christian community: Anabaptism, Pietism, and Wesleyanism

The Be in Christ Church currently includes three church expressions under its name:  1) Community Churches such as the Oak Ridges Church;  2) The Network which consists of a variety of non-traditional expressions of church ministry;  and 3) The Meeting House which is a thriving multi-campus church.
The following 10 Values are rooted in our church history and doctrine. In broad strokes, they convey the essential beliefs of our denomination as stated in our Articles of Faith and Doctrine.
