Oak Ridge Baptist Church (ORBC) began as a community outreach on South Division Street in 1962. The church experienced some initial success but lost its way. After 25 years of plateau and decline, the church went through a near-death experience in 1998. In late 1999 the leadership made a decision to radically change the operating practices and philosophy of the church. They recaptured the vision and the mission of the church. Since that time ORBC has experienced incredible growth!
