Welcome to OCFA
Our goal: to know Christ and make him known to our community and the world.
WE TURNED 100 LAST
We recently celebrated our 100th anniversary and it was a memorable day! We welcomed former leaders and friends who attended in the past. We praised God for his faithfulness and looked ahead to what He will do in the future!

"To know Christ and make Him known to our community and the world."
How exactly can we "know Christ?"
God created everything, including you!
For in [Jesus} all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
The bad news: humans are sinful and therefore separated from God. Because of this, no one can be reconciled to God on their own.
God demonstrates his own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Jesus Christ is God's only remedy for sin. Jesus lived a sinless life, died in our place and rose from the dead so we would not be separate from God.
By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works so that no one can boast.
The good news: when we confess our sin and believe inJesus Christ as Savior and Lord, we are saved and will experience freedom on earth and everlasting life after death.
When we admit our need for a savior and believe in what Jesus has done, our lives are changed forever. This is when Jesus takes residence in your life and in your heart. "Knowing Christ" means being in relationship with him, trusting him everyday and living a life in service to God and others. God desires that you would be saved. Wherever you are, you can ask him to be Lord of your life today!
To start a relationship with him, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart:
"Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess You as my Savior from sin and the Lord of my life. Thank You for saving me. Amen.”
