Not to us, O Lord, not to us,

but to Your name give glory,

for the sake of Your

steadfast love and Your faithfulness!

Psalm 115:1


We are one. We are different. We are family.

his vision

God's vision for Open Arms Church is to be an urban, multi-ethnic church family, giving God the greatest glory.

"So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, 

do all to the glory of God." 1 Cor 10:31

Purpose (Why another church?)

1. Our city needs a church that is not segregated on Sunday mornings, but embracing of all ethnicities and cultures.

2. Our city needs a church that does not promote an earthly personality, but an eternal Savior.

3. Our city needs a church that has simple rules, to love one God and love one another.

4. Our city needs a church that has Real people. Simply serving. Loving family.

5. Our city needs a church that welcomes everyone with open arms.

MISSION STATEMENT: We give God the greatest glory by embracing God (in worship), equipping people (in discipleship) and empowering people (in mission).
