The Ocean View Presbyterian Church is a congregation focused on growing in the faith and living out that faith in mission to others and to each other. Not content with simply reciting doctrine, we have committed ourselves to looking into the Scriptures so as to uncover the ongoing story of our faith. We seek to be a part of that story. The congregation as a whole, and each of its committees, is actively engaged in doing mission, and on communicating in real ways the good news of Jesus Christ.
Ocean View Presbyterian is a historic church, dating back to 1856. We have a long and proud tradition, but seek to take that tradition and move into the future with it. We also have a wonderful friendship and fellowship with each other that can be seen and felt in all aspects of ministry at OVPC.
We all invite you to be a part of our life and ministry.

In 2016 the Presbyterian Church (USA) approved a new peacemaking policy that include five affirmations essential to for Christians to fulfill their calling as peacemakers. Join us as we study and share our reactions to the very thought provoking book 'Five Risks Presbyterians Must Take for Peace: Renewing The Commitment to Peacemaking in The PC(USA)'.

We Choose to Love, rather than Fear the immigrant, the stranger among us.
