Informally called Ocean View CRC or OVCRC, we are a small but growing church located in the heart of Ocean View in Norfolk, Virginia, just two blocks from the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. At Ocean View CRC, we seek to form a community of people who are enabled to serve one another, to enhance the quality of their life of faith in Christ by meeting the need of the whole person: spiritual, physical and emotional.
In 2010, we celebrated our 35th anniversary with praises and thanksgiving for God's faithfulness throughout the years. In spite of the challenges of a small congregation, God has amazingly provided for our needs and we look forward to what He has in store for us these coming years.
Come visit and rejoice with us in our Sunday worship service!
"I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD!'"
- Psalm 122:1 (RSV)
We believe that every person is born into a sinful state, and that salvation for us and all believers comes only through faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, our Lord and Savior, who was sent to die for our sins by God the Father, the Creator of the world. Following Jesus' death, resurrection and ascension, He sent the Holy Spirit, who does the work of salvation in people's hearts and guides believers in all truth.
We believe that this saving faith is a gift of God's grace, not of human effort.
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and is inerrant and infallible in its original languages. Further, we believe that since the Bible is God's Word, His revelation to us, it is the only authority to which we look in matters of faith and life.
