The people of Oak Bay United Church are rooted in the traditions of the United Church of Canada. Since 1925, The United Church has been proclaiming and embodying a socially progressive theology, rooted in the radically inclusive and egalitarian way of Jesus Christ. We take the Bible too seriously to read it literally, and find authority for our lives in God’s presence in Scripture, reason, human experience and church tradition.

We welcome the leadership and gifts of all people: women and men; children, youth and adults; straight, lesbian, gay, transgender, and 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 all of those things with you, to enrich and change our community of faith for the better!

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.
