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.

Reverend Terence B. Dougherty
We Choose to Love, rather than Fear the immigrant, the stranger among us.
‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’
Matthew 25:45 (NRSV)
He who is filled with love is filled with God himself.
. Saint Augustine
Each year the Board of Deacons asks the members and friends of OVPC to complete a Time and Talents survey. This allows us to invite you participate in the life of the church and community in ways that no other may be able to. Remember there are no gifts that you possess that can't make a difference.
'There are different kinds of gifts, but the same spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work." (1 Corinthians 12: 4-6)
