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 we enjoy a time of fellowship and refreshments in the school hall.
OBC currently meet at Taradale High School, 50 Murphy Road on a Sunday morning with the service beginning at 10am. There is plenty of parking within the school grounds and there are people there to help direct you to a park.
We still have our OBC church building located at 16 Riverbend Road, Onekawa in Napier and ministries run there during the week. The map below shows where our church building is.
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 and would like more information please click on one of the leaders names below to send them an email:

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 non-believers 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).
