Our mission is to lead people into

a life-giving relationship with Jesus.

Our pastors had a vision to plant life-giving churches in Western Oklahoma. In February of 2011, they planted The Way Church in Elk City with just a handful of people. With the help of people committed to seeing that dream fulfilled, the church has experienced significant life and growth. The Way Church continues to focus on reaching out to the non-churched by building relationships and preaching the message of the Gospel.

Our Beliefs


At our church, you will hear the word “gospel” repeatedly because it is the most important truth that we can know and experience. The gospel is not merely a message that needs to be shared with non-Christians, but also with Christians. It is not something that mature Christians move on from, but rather something that they move deeper into. The gospel is the lens in which we should view theology, ministry, and all aspects of life.


The Apostle Paul defined the word “gospel” concisely in 1st Corinthians 15:3-5 when he wrote, “Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.” Simply put, the gospel is all about Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, and the implications it has for us.
