What We Believe



COME AS YOU ARE


Oceanhills is a one of a kind, unusual, and accepting community of everyday people who are figuring out how to love God and love others by following the life and teachings of Jesus. 

We embrace the messiness of real life and seek to help each other grow in grace despite our differences (generational, political, theological, racial, and educational). 

We value being a Jesus-centered church instead of an issue-centered church. 

We value relationships over rules, so we won't tell you how to vote, or guilt you into giving. 


We will encourage you to become the best version of yourself — 

that person God dreams for you to become! 

We don't think we are the perfect church, but we do think we are different from most churches.


We’re a Christ-centered church with a spirit that says, 

“No Perfect people allowed!"

We accept each other regardless of where we’re at on our journey and help each other grow closer to Christ. It is our heart’s desire to help each other take the next step in becoming more & more like Christ. Oceanhills places great importance on solid and practical Bible teaching. The Scriptures are foundational to shaping and growing us. At Oceanhills we desire to help people answer the question, “Why are we here?” and then to encourage people to discover and develop their God-given potential – which always leads to living beyond ourselves! The focus of our ministry is not only on a celebrative and uplifting style of worship, but also on fulfilling the Great Commandment (Mark 12:28-31) and the Great Commission (Mathew 28:19-20) in our generation.


Oceanhills is part of a national denomination called the Evangelical Covenant Church. For more information, please check out their website HERE



OUR VISION

We are passionate about demonstrating God’s love to our neighbors, the global community and the next generation. Our 3C strategy was developed to help us stay true to our vision. We are constantly asking ourselves if we are connecting people to: Christ, Community, Cause. We believe that by staying true to our values, inspiring the passion and talent of our people, working in innovative ways, and doing our best, we will bring that vision of a better world a little bit closer every day.
