We are the family place in the South Bay and we exist to glorify God
On February 1, 2015, Pastor Jim Baize and his wife Pat, passed the mantle of leadership at OVC to me and my wifeChrista. After 41 years of faithful ministry and literally pastoring a city of people, the time had come for revitalization and a renewed vision.
GROWING IN FAITH: A pathway to help you MATURE in faith.
SOWING IN FAITH: A process to help you GIVE by faith.
GOING IN FAITH: Opportunities to help you LIVE by faith.
Our goal is the same as that of the Apostle Paul: “Our hope is that as we help your faith grow larger, you’ll be able to help this ministry to you grow larger too.” (2 Corinthians 10:15) In this brochure, you will learn all the details about how we will trust God as we give in faith.
“Without faith it is impossible to please God.” – Hebrews 11:6
It was 10 years ago, when God called Christa and me to San Diego to join this vibrant and healthy church. We loaded up the moving van, said our goodbyes, and shed many tears as we left our families, friends and church to join God on the grand adventure He had planned for us. It was by faith that we followed and it is in faith that we continue to forge ahead for His glory and names sake.
A DARING FAITH has only one expectation and that expectation is that the Lord is with us. Whenever God calls us to go, He means, “Let’s go!”David knew that simply the presence of the Lord was his great expectation and great reward. (Psalm 62:5-8) God let Joshua know that there were no obstacles that could hinder him from true victory. “Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:5-9)
We are commanded to have DARING FAITH and our confidence, security, and strength will come from God! To experience True success in our lives and church we must depend on Christ in us the hope of Glory. (Colossians 1:27) It is God who will give us the will to and want to in this Kingdom pursuit. (Philippians 2:13)
We will dare to dream...
