Our Theology

We believe God’s love is for all people.

Through education and worship we long to live out the words of Charles Wesley, “Let us unite the two so long divided, knowledge and vital piety.”

We believe grace is the momentum that drives us into a relationship with God and with our world.

Our Mission and Welcoming Statement

For over 100 years, Otterbein Church has gathered on the corner of Queen and Clay Streets, following the call to make a difference in our community and our world. We believe the great commandments, to love God with all our strength, soul, heart and mind, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We believe that God’s grace is extended to all. We welcome persons of every age, race, color, ability, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, and any others who are marginalized, to be part of our journey. Together, we continue to explore and live the meaning of Christian discipleship in today’s world.
