We're transitioning out of the COVID19 Pandemic restrictions and into meeting in person. Our first Sunday (Lord willing) will be August 1st, 2021. We've implemented regular cleaning and sanitizing of our facility and will require face coverings for both safety and peace of mind. We'll continue to share "The Bible In Context" on our #OpenDoorOC YouTube Channel with our many new friends and community members online, and once again with you, in person. Stay safe and we'll see you soon!
Thank you for joining us on the journey.
If you want to explore and grow in your relationship with Jesus and other people, this is us. If you're wanting to learn and practice Jesus' teachings in a growing and affirming community, this is us. If you're looking for a place where you're free to be who you are, this is us. We've always been an inclusive community. Founded in 2000 we've remained dedicated to welcoming, including, affirming, and serving "all" people, including our brothers, sisters, friends, families of the LGBTQ+ community.
"Love one another as I have loved you."
We have always been a diverse and fluid community. We don't put on a "big show," or focus on becoming "a big church." Instead, we focus on building each other up, helping one another grow and heal so we can get on with living our best lives in big and meaningful ways.
Come experience the warm welcome we believe Jesus asks us to offer all people from everywhere. We are one human family and Open Door OC is the place where everyone matters, including you.
"Love does no harm to their neighbors."
~Paul the Apostle~
Our unique, all volunteer leadership structure facilitates our commitment to direct most of our financial resources to serve people both inside and outside our community. Our leadership team is made up of four Pastors who each use their gifts, talents, and skill sets to minister to the community, cultivate spiritual growth, and equip and raise up the next generation of progressive Christian leaders from within this community.
If you believe in Jesus and his teachings of equality and social justice we're likely a great fit for each other. We value every person and encourage everyone to explore volunteer and mentoring opportunities in different ways and in a variety of areas.
We are a body of people with different backgrounds and experiences. Open Door OC (Open Door Ministries) encourages everyone to both serve and lead in areas that fit their talents and skill sets, while we all grow together in others.
"Do the good to others that you want done to you."
~ Jesus ~
