Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a member of OCBF?

At the end of each Sunday morning service, an invitation to join our church is extended by one of the pastors. Individuals that are interested in membership will be directed to come to Room 8 at the end of the service. During that time, prospective members will complete paperwork and have the opportunity to ask questions about the membership process.
