Welcome to

Church of the Outer Banks

Church of the Outer Banks is a community of believers from all ages and backgrounds. On Sunday mornings, you'll find a family-friendly atmosphere that brings together the best of church tradition with a contemporary worship experience. We are a church that stands on the authority of scripture, and believes it’s our vision to love God, love others, and live on mission. We are part of the Anglican Church of North America through the Diocese of the Carolinas. Wherever you are on your journey, we invite you to come and explore the Christian faith with us on Sunday mornings.

Our Vision

What We Believe

Love God

We believe the most important thing is to love God with all our hearts and to grow in our relationship with Him. We do this through the spiritual disciplines of worship, public and private prayer, and by studying the Word of God.

Love Others

We believe that loving relationships should permeate every aspect of the Christian life. We do this by bearing one another’s burdens, by praying for one another, by participating in community groups, and by serving others as the body of Christ.

Live on Mission

We believe that every Christian is created and gifted for ministry and has been given a mission. We are called to live as missionaries to share the message and the love of Jesus Christ with our neighbors, in our community and beyond our borders.
If you would like to be a part of our vision we invite you to partner us!

Core Beliefs

We rejoice in the gospel of God through which we have been saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. Because God first loved us, we love him and as believers bring forth fruits of love, ongoing repentance, lively hope and thanksgiving to God in all things.

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. He lived a sinless life, was crucified for our sins, was resurrected from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father.

We believe that the Holy Spirit glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ, convicts the world of its guilt, regenerates sinners, and in Him they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. 

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of Holy Men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 2:!3, 2 Peter 1:21)

We believe that all who receive salvation by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby they become children of God, and heirs of eternal life. This is a relationship in which the born again are eternally secure.

We believe that the church is composed of all who have been justified by God’s grace through faith alone in Christ alone. They are united by the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head. 

Baptism with water is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.

We believe that marriage is the union of a man and a woman, as designed by God and any other union shall not be condoned in its practice nor celebrated by the Church of the Outer Banks. We also believe Christ’s grace challenges us to minister and care for anyone outside that description with the love of Christ and pursue the reconciliation of His image in every person’s life.

We partake of the Lord’s Supper (Communion) to remember the Lord’s death till he comes (I Corinthians 11:23-31). The bread symbolizes the Lord’s body (Isaiah. 53:5; I Corinthians 11:24). The cup represents the new covenant in His blood which provides us forgiveness and relationship with God (Hebrews 9: I Corinthians 11:25).
