Who We Are

Mandarin Church of Christ...a place to love and be loved.

The use of a live oak tree as a logo for the Mandarin Church of Christ came quite naturally. The Mandarin area has been known for years to be covered with all types of oak trees.  The most majestic of these oaks, the live oak, is typically adorned with numerous branches stretching out in all directions. It was the desire of the founding members of the Mandarin Church of Christ that we would multiply in great numbers like the branches of the live oak and that our families would stretch throughout Jacksonville, the U.S., and the world.

In addition, the live oak has a root system that extends deep into the ground and simultaneously stretches in broad widths under the branches to anchor the tree against storms and wind. Again, it was the desire of those who founded the church here in Mandarin that the Christians in this congregation be well anchored and rooted in the Word of God to withstand the storms of life.

30 years later, we still look to that tree as a symbol of what we desire to be - loving, dedicated followers of God, people who are rooted in Scripture, and a group thats seeks out those who need to hear the message of a loving God.
