We are OP

OceanPointe is a community of broken people, and there is always room for one more. Since our launch in 2014, this church community has been so much more than a building. It is a movement! It is a gathering of broken people who are being made new and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. OceanPointe's main belief is that there is HOPE FOR EVERYONE, and we will do everything within our power, short of sin, to make that known. Why? Because a relationship with Jesus changes everything!
