Current Series: iBELIEVE

Choosing to BELIEVE is a big part of what it means to become a Christian and live the Christian life.  But what does it mean to "believe" and what kinds of things do I need to believe in to be a Christian?  In the iBelieve series, we are exploring six beliefs that are necessary to become a Christian and live the Christian life the way God intended it to be lived. 


Join us Sunday, September 23, as Senior Pastor Mike Newman concludes the iBelieve series with the message "Jesus is Coming Again."  In the message, Pastor Mike will help us look at what the Bible teaches about eternal life and what we can expect Jesus to do in the future as He returns to the earth.

Welcome to Otterbein

We know going to church for the first time can be a little awkward and even scary—especially if you don’t know anyone. We want to assure you that we will do everything we can to make your visit with us a positive one. We encourage you to stop at GUEST CENTRAL in the church lobby where a helpful volunteer will answer questions you have and provide an overview of our church programs. Greeters and ushers are available to answer questions you might have. Directional signs will point you toward our nursery, classrooms and sanctuary. We welcome guests, and our church wants to help you have a good first-time experience.

practical messages

We understand that one of the biggest criticisms of the church is that the sermons are boring and not very helpful. Our pastors try very hard to make sure that the sermons don’t just teach about the Bible, but that they also talk about how to put into practice what the Bible says. We use various forms of media to help explain the Bible, and outlines of the messages are provided every week so you can take notes and think more about the teaching in the messages after you leave the church.
