CREEDS — The new addition at Oak Grove Baptist Church is a multipurpose room, a sizable structure that gathered the congregation, friends and guests in a celebration on Sunday, July 12, at the church at Princess Anne and Pungo Ferry roads.
During the service, during which a number of the congregants saw the inside of the structure for the first time, the Rev. Chuck Moseley, pastor at Oak Grove, explained why no mere cornerstone would do here.
He discussed the image of a building as one befitting of a church because it stands. “We should stand for something,” Moseley said.
He then mentioned a request he made when the foundation of the building was being poured.
“I asked them to bury a Bible in the center of the foundation,” he said.
Not just any Bible — the one given to him at the time of his ordination, placed in a metal box and within the structure itself. “This building is built on the word of God,” the pastor said.
