The Church in Ocean Park is a caring interfaith congregation that explores a wide range of spiritual teachings and practices in order to employ boldness for good. Working for social justice, full inclusion and high emphasis on creative expression are the most significant hallmarks of our church. We intentionally create and use our diversity to dismantle unjust systems. All people of any or no faith are equally valued, safe, and loved at the Church in Ocean Park. We prize kindness, compassion and open-mindedness. Our services include time for community sharing. We listen to and learn from each other, and open up new perspectives for each other. We seek continually to grow in love and wisdom and in the capacity to effect positive change. We enjoy music, laughter and friendship both for their own sakes and for the sake of keeping our spirits up as we work for a more humane and equitable world.
The Church in Ocean Park is intentionally Multi-Faith where you will find Muslims, Jews, Wiccans, Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, atheists and combinations and more. We are known in the community for helping to make positive change. We are also known for disrupting the status quo at times (which is what leads to the change). We strive to be a horizontal and inclusive organization. We recognize that we are sitting on the stolen land of the Chumash, Tongva and Kizh peoples who still live among us and we pledge to be part of the culture of repair.
