We believe that God calls all who follow Him to do works of service so that the entire body of Christ will grow in maturity, unity, and Christ-like character. Jesus Christ has commissioned the church, and its individual parts, to go into the world to share the Good News and help people come into God's family through faith in Him.
Together these concepts lead the church to serve "outside the walls" in order to share the love of Christ through human relationship and care, meeting the needs of the community around us in the name of Christ, and expanding the Kingdom of God on earth for the glory of Christ...
...ACTS will help OCEC fulfill God's purposes of sharing His love through action in our local communities.
Our ACTS verse is James 2:17 "In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, if dead."
