This Is Us

At Open Door OC

We're not a "religious group." We're an inclusive and an affirming spiritual community. This means we're a growing community of people transforming into the image of Jesus. We build relationships with one another by renewing our minds through fixing false religious narratives we may have learned in our past. 

Together, we practice Jesus' kind of love in our relationships by connecting through groups, book studies, and fun community activities. 

Part of our personal growth and community development is in our daily spiritual practices; prayer, meditation, lectio divina, correctly studying the Bible, spiritual journaling, fasting, community life, healthy relationships, and more...

We're doing our best to learn what it means and looks like to follow Jesus without being weird or "cooky." 

We believe Jesus is the "Living Word," the "Physical Embodiment of our Creator. We see Jesus as the Light of Life and the Almighty God Who Became human" to show us the best way to relate to one another, and how we should treat each other. 

We understand Jesus to be the "Bread from Heaven" whose words give us life and lift us out of dark and difficult places. We've come to know that it is when we actively love and care for others we are fulfilling Jesus "new" commandment, that we love one another like he loves us.

We work toward peace by standing up for the fair and equitable treatment (social justice) for all people.  We demonstrate our love for Jesus by practicing our love toward one another.
