About Us

ovbc 7


Our mission is to worship God and love people, by sharing the gospel of Christ, teaching His ways, and building relationships as we serve God together.


Ojai Valley Baptist Church became a church in 1965. We exist to carry out the Great Commission of the Lord, Jesus Christ:

“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,  baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching  them to observe everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19-20

We intend to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ, that  sacrifice to make a difference in our valley, and our world, for the Kingdom of God.  Our desire is to serve our Lord Jesus and our community through faithful worship and practical hands-on ministry. We believe that the church is to be an equipping center through which the people of God are built up in their knowledge, and in their daily obedience to Jesus Christ.  We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention,  and hold to the Bible as the sole  authority for Christian faith and action.

If you are not actively involved in a Bible believing church ministry, we invite you to come and worship Jesus with us.  If we can help or pray for you, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.  Jesus loves you!  We at Ojai Valley Baptist Church want to show His love to you!  May God guide you as you seek to know Him, learn to love Him, and begin to serve Him.
