Join our community, just as you are, Sundays at 10AM in the Westminster Mall for our live recordings that we broadcast to our growing YouTube community online.
We've always been an inclusive community. Founded in 2000 we've remained dedicated to serving our neighbors and family within the LGBTQ+ community. We started out in Long Beach and moved to Orange County because there weren't any truly inclusive church communities in this region. If you're looking for an inclusive and affirming church community in this area, we hope you'll find Open Door OC to be a place you can call home.
"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 teaching the Bible in context, building each other up, and helping one another grow and heal. This helps each of us get on with living out our best lives in big and meaningful ways.
Come experience the warm welcome Jesus asks us to offer everyone from everywhere. We are one human family and Open Door OC is the place where everyone is appreciated, valued, encouraged, and welcomed with both open doors and open arms. This includes you too.
"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 in need both inside our church community and outside in our local community. Our leadership team is made up of five Ministers 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 we should be following Jesus' teachings of loving your neighbor as you love yourself 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 because there is a place at the table for everyone who wants one.
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 as a community.
"Do the good to others that you want done to you."
~ Jesus ~
