Due to COVID-19 we are doing LIVE stream Sunday morning services until further notice.
Onekawa Bible Church (OBC) is known as the home of 'grace and truth'. This phrase is a description of our Lord Jesus from the Gospel of John (John 1:14, 17). Jesus Christ is the Head of this church and we seek to honour and exalt him in all that we do.
The word 'Grace' reminds us that God has given us far more than we need or deserve - his most generous gift is eternal life. In return, we want to display and extend that same kind of grace to every person we meet.
The word 'truth' is a specific reminder that God's Word to us, the Bible, is absolute truth. As a church, we are committed to the authority and sufficiency of God's inerrant Word. Every decision, every programme, every ministry of OBC is subjected to the principles outlined in Scripture.
OBC has undertaken a number of exciting changes during the past year. We are so grateful for all that God has been doing and we look forward with great anticipation to how he will build us in the years to come. If you're looking for a church, it would be an honour to have you visit us. We strive to be hospitable, caring, and friendly. You are very welcome.
We now worship together at 10am every Sunday morning at Taradale High School, 50 Murphy Road, Taradale. See you soon.
Grace & Truth
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 Sunday's 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 créche available each week for the children 0-3 years old.
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 back of 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 ready 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:
