Sunday Morning Service 10:00-11:30am
The worship service will include a time of singing, Bible reading, prayer, giving and preaching of God’s powerful Word. Most Sundays we celebrate the Lord’s death and resurrection by taking communion together.
We are a family church with people from all stages and ages in life with an ever increasing number of kids, youth and young adults.
There is a creche available each week for the children 0-3 years old. The creche also caters for Mums so they can watch and listen to all the events taking place in the main auditorium if they need to be in with their little ones.
We also run a Sunday School during the sermon for children aged 3-12 years old. Children are taught simple yet important truths about God, Jesus Christ, the gospel and how to live a life that pleases God.
After the service the Sunday School children are welcome to enjoy the playground in the fenced off area at the back of the property.
After the service we enjoy a time of fellowship and refreshments in the Youth Hall.
On the last Sunday of each month we have a shared, fingerfood lunch. You won’t need to bring anything—you are our guest and we will provide enough food for you and your family.
We are located at 16 Riverbend Road, Onekawa in Napier. There is plenty of parking at OBC. A number of parks are available on the church property and there are plenty of parks up and down both sides of Riverbend Road.
These small groups are wonderful opportunities to grow our friendships, enhance our fellowship, and dig a little deeper into the life-changing Word of God. If you are not yet connected to a group & would like more info please chat with one of the following leaders:
- Dean Scott (Taradale)

Because God is love ... We will love God, love one another and exhibit Christ’s love to people who do not know Him by engaging in “good works” (Matthew 22:37-40; John 15:12-13; 2 Corinthians 5:14-15; Hebrews 10:24-25; 1 John 3:16-18).
Because we are Christ’s witnesses... We will share the Gospel of God’s grace locally and globally through focused mission activity and will commend the Gospel to nonbelievers by the way we live.
(Matthew 28:19; Acts 1:8; Philippians 1:27; 1 Thessalonians 1:8, 2:8; 1 Peter 3:15-17).
Because God is Sovereign... We will glorify Him in our collective and personal worship and by the way we live.
(Matthew 5:16; Romans 11:33-36; 1 Corinthians 10:31; Ephesians 3:20-21; 1 Timothy 1:17; Revelation 5:12-13).
Because we are expecting Christ’s return... We will be energised by this hope giving ourselves to works of service until he comes.
(John 14:1-3; Philippians 3:20-21; 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10, 4:13-18; 2 Corinthians 5:6-10; Titus 2:11-14).
Because the Bible is God’s inspired, inerrant Word... We will faithfully expound the whole counsel of God revealed in
Scripture so that believers will become mature in Christ.
(Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 20:27; Ephesians 4:11-16; Colossians 1:28; 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 4:2).
