Our Heritage

The Oak Forest Congregation began in August, 1957 in a little block building on St. Mary’s Road in Oak Forest as a church plant. The Mother congregation was the Brookville Church of Christ in Brookville, Indiana. In 1962, the congregation moved into a new facility on Shop Road. With additional growth came the need for additional space. Therefore, in 1992 an addition was added to the Shop Road building. As the congregation continued to be faithful to God’s will, there was a need to expand the facility once again. This addition meant another new location. In 2003, ground was broken on the church’s 30 acres of land just outside of Brookville on St. Mary’s Road. Through the years, the congregation has built buildings and moved physical locations, but the church’s foundation has always remained on the Rock of Jesus.
