I’m New

Welcome to Only Believe Ministries Christian Center’s Website!

We truly hope your visit is a pleasant one, and that it won’t be your last. What’s more, we hope you’ll actually make a visit to Only Believe Ministries Christian Center (OBMCC) in person, so we can meet you and have an opportunity to worship God together.

OBMCC is a place where strangers become friends, and friends become family! It is our goal to provide an atmosphere that will both challenge and enrich your walk with Christ, while making you and your family feel right at home.

You’ll find that we are quite a diverse congregation, offering a wide variety of fellowship and educational opportunities for folks from all age groups and all walks of life.

We’ve prepared this informative look at OBMCC to answer a few basic questions, and to introduce you to our mission, vision, ministries, and outreaches. Please take time to view the rest of our website.

We hope you will be blessed by your time with us, and will consider becoming a part of our family here at Only Believe Ministries Christian Center.

Check out the Q & A section below. If this does not answer a question you have, please feel free to contact Jordan Powell at 937.693.3554 ext 240.

Worship Services

Our service times are Sunday mornings at 10am and Wednesday evenings at 7pm. On the first and third Wednesdays of the month we provide a free pre-service meal in the main lobby beginning at 6pm. Drinks are not provided, but you may bring your own or buy them at the cafe.

For special services and activities please visit the Events page on this website.

Classes for children and youth are provided on both Sundays and Wednesdays.

Our address for your GPS is 13815 Botkins Road, Botkins, OH 45306.

All of our parking lots are accessed from Botkins Road. Guests are welcome to use Guest Parking Spaces located at the North end of our facility. They are marked by white Reserved Guest Parking signs. There are also handicap parking spaces near all of our building entrances. You may also drop someone off at the building entrances and carports and continue to a parking space.

Although all connected, our facility is comprised of three buildings. As you enter our campus from Botkins Road, South of our facility, the first building is the Youth Center, the second building is the Children’s Church, and the last building is the Main Lobby and Sanctuary.

We have all kinds of wonderful people in our church. Some like to dress up, while others like to wear jeans, so please come however you feel most comfortable. Children and teens have their own things going on, so you might want to come a little early to have time to check them in.

Every service begins with a time of worship music where you will see everything from raised hands, clapping, dancing, and shouting to quiet kneeling and tears streaming down grateful faces. You are free to join in as you wish. You will enjoy an encouraging message from Pastor Doseck or another guest minister, and after church we invite you to get to know people around a cup of coffee in the café.

There are handicap parking spaces near all of our building entrances. You may also drop someone off at the building entrances and carports and continue to a parking space. All entrances have wheelchair accessibility. Once inside, you may ask a Greeter or Welcome Center attendant further questions if needed. We can assist you to wheelchair accommodations in the Sanctuary.

For children with special needs, we have a special needs class that is available during our Sunday morning services only. Ages range from pre-school age to elementary age. The name of the class is Special Buddies. For more information about Special Buddies please call Pastor Randy Waters at 937.693.3554 ext 241.

When you arrive, you will be welcomed by Greeters who can direct you to the Welcome Center located in the Main Lobby. The Welcome Center is staffed with knowledgable volunteers who will be happy to answer your questions, help you find the right classrooms for your children, and even go with you to find your destination.

Getting connected with others is easy at our church. We have over 40 small groups that you can get involved in to help you grow in your relationship with Christ and others. You can sign up to join a small group at obmcc.org/small-groups or visit the Connect Corner display in the lobby to pick up flyers for your favorite groups. 

If you are ready to serve there are several ways to sign up. You can pick up a volunteer application at the Welcome Center, fill out the field at Volunteer Sign Up under Resources on this website, or contact Pastor Kylan Booser at [email protected]

Children are a priority in our church, and there is something here for every age group! Starting with the Little Lights nursery all the way through 4th grade, your children will experience music, puppets, skits, hands on lessons, and even snacks. Classes include Little Lights Nursery (infant – 24 months), Preschool (2yrs – PreK), Slam Jr (Kindergarten – 1st graders), Slam (2nd – 4th graders). We also have a super awesome store called “The Prize Depot”, where your kids can purchase some cool toys as they earn Believer Bucks for coming to church, bringing their Bibles and first time guests, and many other things. Safety for your child is also very important, this is why we have people monitoring the halls and all exterior doors are locked after service begins. For more information about our Children’s Ministry please call Pastor Randy Waters at 937.693.3554 ext 241. The Children’s Ministry is located in the second building as you enter our campus.

5.6 is for students in grades 5 and 6. This is a special ministry we created just for this age group. 5.6 is a high energy atmosphere where these students learn how to apply their faith in everyday life. 5.6 exists to lead students to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. 5.6 Services are on Sundays at 10am and Wednesdays at 7pm. Check-In for this age group starts 30 minutes before service, and students are picked up by their parent/guardian after service concludes.
