Informally called Ocean View CRC or OVCRC, we are a small, diverse and friendly church located in the heart of Ocean View neighborhood in Norfolk, Virginia, just two blocks from the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. We seek to be a community who serve one another and encourage each other in following Jesus Christ. We invite you to visit us and rejoice with us in what Jesus has done!

“I rejoiced with those who said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’” —Psalm 122:1


If you live in the Norfolk area or even if you are here for a season, we invite you to worship with us. You will not find perfect people here, only sinners saved by God’s grace. In our worship services, in sermons, in prayer groups and all we do here, our mission is to know Jesus and to make Jesus known. We aim to honor God as the center of our lives. We hope that you can join us, no matter where you are in your spiritual journey.

We follow the traditional form of worship with God’s greetings, songs, a call to worship, a call to confession and readings on prayer of confession and affirmation of faith.  The readings and the songs are projected on the screen.  The songs are usually taken from Psalter hymnals and other song books.

The people in the congregation come dressed in whatever is comfortable to them. Some men dress in shirt and tie, some in polo shirt.  The women come in dresses, shirts, skirts or pants.

What We Believe:

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 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.
