You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp, and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

Frontline Downtown is a church for the city. We love OKC! This congregation is located in the historic First Christian Church building in the Midtown District of downtown Oklahoma City. We are passionate about transforming the hearts of the city from the heart of the city. We hold three Sunday worship gatherings, with Community Groups meeting weekly throughout the city for community, discipleship, and mission.

Infants and Children

In God’s eyes, and so in ours, children are blessings. The burden to keep them safe while in our care, to teach them the gospel, to show them how generously our Father loves us, is one we are happy to carry!

Our deepest hope and prayer is that we can deepen your family’s pursuit of God and help shape your child’s view of the Church and gospel community for the glory of Christ.

Visit us. Check your child into a Frontline Kids class. Meet our teachers and pastors, because we look forward to serving and loving your entire family!


Our hope and vision is to teach our teens—your teens—about Christ so our young people can begin experiencing a full life in Him while they are still young!

That’s why we look forward to Wednesday nights, when our youth gather to worship Jesus, hear gospel-centered teaching, and pray with one another.

Are you a teen? Are you the parent of a teen? Learn more here about our youth leaders and their love for sharing the gospel of Christ, and visit the Connect area on Sunday!

Community Groups

As we learn to give and receive ministry between Sundays, we start to become a real church and not just a Sunday morning event.

The gospel doesn’t call us to a “just me and Jesus” mentality. Jesus tells us that the second greatest commandment is like the first – we are to love our neighbor as ourselves.

Please use this tool to find a community group. If you’d like one on one help finding a group, just contact us today!
