We're glad you chose to check out Onward Christian Church. Worship is at the heart of our life together in Onward Christian Church. We are sure you will find God's presence real and alive in His family here at OCC.
We are Committed to Growing the Kingdom of God By Obeying the Great Commission; Sharing the Love of Jesus Christ! Matthew 28:18-20
Who Are We?
The people of OCC are of varied background and theologies gathered at 21 E Oak in Onward, Indiana. However, they have the basic belief that every person must follow Jesus the Christ as he or she is personally lead by the Bible and the Holy Spirit.
We celebrate weekly Communion in our morning service in keeping with the book of Acts. Church membership is not required to take part in the communion service.
We believe in congregational autonomy whereby the individual local congregation makes all the decisions concerning the life of the church body.
We baptize through "believer's baptism" by immersion. This understanding is that the baptismal candidate makes the conscious decision of his or her own free will to follow the lordship of Jesus.
What to Expect?
You will find a friendly Christian welcome and a Bible message. We are a group of Christians assembled to worship God through Jesus Christ His Son. We strive to worship as Christ directs in his Word. (Ephesians 5:19; 1Timothy 2:8, John 4:24; Acts 2:42; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2). OCC encourages everyone to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. We encourage everyone to believe in Christ (John 8:24), repent (Luke 13:3,5), confess Christ (Matthew 10:32), and be baptized into Christ (Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38). Those already baptized are encouraged to be faithful in worship and service to the Lord as the scriptures teach in the New Testament.
