What Should I Expect?
We do not assemble on Sundays to be entertained but to worship God in spirit and truth (John 4:23-24). It is our aim that God would be glorified and the gospel proclaimed for the edification of the saints (Eph. 4:11-16) and the salvation of the lost (Matt. 28:16-20).
The reason we exist as a congregation is because of the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ (1 John 4:9-12). It is our joy to boldly declare the good news in our worship, fellowship, work, and relationships (Col. 3:17).
We desire at Ocean Park to embody the theological saying, "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him." Jesus Christ is our soul's greatest desire and our pleasure to magnify throughout our worship (Rev. 5). He is the radiance of the glory of God (Heb. 1:3-4) and the only eternal satisfaction for our soul (Ps 16:11).
The Word of God is the completed revelation of God and the ultimate source of truth for the believer (2 Timothy 3:16-17). It is our desire that every aspect of our worship service come under the authority of scripture. All our prayers, songs, and preaching must reflect the glory of God, the beauty of Christ, and the truth of the gospel (Eph 5:18-21).
