The people of Oak Bay United Church are rooted in the traditions of the United Church of Canada. We are a progressive christian community, practicing the radically inclusive and egalitarian way of Jesus Christ. We find authority for our lives in God’s presence in Scripture, reason, human experience and church tradition.

The leadership and gifts of all people are welcome at Oak Bay United: women, men and transgender; children, youth, young adults, adults and elders; straight, lesbian, gay, queer or questioning; seekers, doubters and believers.

We trust that we all have something of God to share: experiences, knowledge, questions and beliefs. We hope that you’ll bring these things with you, enriching this community of faith. Whether it’s your first time here, or you call this church home, your presence makes a difference.

Our beliefs can be summed up by
A New Creed of the United Church of Canada

We are not alone,
We live in God's world.
We believe in God:

      who has created and is creating,
      who has come in Jesus,
            the Word made flesh,
            to reconcile and make new,
      who works in us and others
            by the Spirit.

We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:

to celebrate God's presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
     our judge and our hope.

In life, in death, in life beyond death,
      God is with us.
We are not alone.
      Thanks be to God.
