CULTURE

Come as you are! At Oceanhills we like to say, “no perfect people allowed.”

 

We are a one of a kind, unusual, and accepting community of everyday people who are figuring out how to love God and how to love everyone always by following the life and teachings of Jesus.

 

We embrace the messiness of real life, seek to help each other grow in grace despite our differences, and are a Jesus centered church – not an issue centered church. We also value relationships over rules, so we don’t tell our people how to vote or guilt them into giving.

 

We don’t think we are the perfect church, but we do think we are different from most churches. Come join us on a Sunday – all are welcome, everyone is invited!

HISTORY

Oceanhills is a Covenant Church in Santa Barbara, CA founded in 1998 by our lead Pastor, Dr. Jon Ireland who planted it with support from Montecito Covenant Church. We shared our first office with McDonalds and met in the Veterans Memorial Building for the first three years before moving to The Luke.

Church on the Beach is a longstanding tradition during the summer! As is Church Under The Stars on Christmas Eve in The Rotunda by the beach.

PARTNERSHIPS

We are focused on living out our God-given marching orders to love everyone always across the street and around the world. We are dedicated to serving regularly with our local and global partnerships:
