IMPACTING THE NEXT GENERATION
Forever Changed at Falls Creek
During the summer of 2005, visitors to Falls Creek were
greeted with a new 6,000-seat covered amphitheater. The
original tabernacle was taken down in late spring to make way
for the new 7,056-seat, enclosed tabernacle scheduled to open
the summer of 2007.

Nothing demonstrates the heart of Oklahoma Baptists more

I was saved and entered a personal relationship with the Lord on
Tuesday, July 27, 2004, during the evening worship service at
Falls Creek. It is incredible to be part of a youth group that is
willing to help you along your new Christian walk. However, it is
even more joyous when you are able to share that joy and the
love of Jesus Christ with your friends. This summer at Falls
Creek, I was blessed to have led and prayed with four of my
friends who made decisions for the Lord. I was being witnessed
to and then turned around and witnessed to others just a year
later. Now, being in college, it is great to share my wonderful
experience with my college friends. God is awesome!
