Our Congregational Vision is to:
Become a more joyful, passionate, spiritually vibrant, intergenerational community of friends who are intentionally engaged in growing in faith, committed to serving our community and the world, and centered on transforming lives through the Good News of Jesus Christ.
We welcome you to join us! We are a people who enjoy being on a spiritual journey together and living our faith through loving service in our community. Whatever your background or previous experience, we want you to find acceptance and encouragement here as you bring your questions, your talents to share and your willingness to explore your faith. We worship God with a variety of traditional and contemporary expressions. We believe that the church should be both grounded in the wisdom of the past and relevant to all ages. There is something here for everyone, and all are welcome!
Presbyterians have worshiped together in Oxford since 1818. Presbyterians were instrumental in the founding of Miami University. A number of the early university presidents and faculty members were Presbyterian ministers. In 1966, two streams of the Presbyterian Church united to form the present Oxford Presbyterian Church (OPC), a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). OPC shares the historic Presbyterian commitments to worship, education for children, youth and adults, especially the study of the Bible, a representative form of governing, local and global mission outreach, and ecumenical and interfaith partnership.
We are an active, warm and diverse congregation of about 450 members located on the corner of Church and Main Streets in the center of Oxford. One block to the East on Church Street we have a second facility, the Seminary Building, for fellowship, community activities and a youth center.
