University Church was established in the 1940s to minister to the college students, faculty, staff, as well as the surrounding community. It is our life, hope, and passion to build life-shaping relationships with all those around us. We long to foster a free and expressive worship environment,  to nourish life long friendships, and to above all else take our community closer to the likeness of Jesus Christ. 


OUR VISION is to exist to transform our communities (both OCU and Circleville) with the radical love of Jesus.


OUR MISSION is to be committed to transforming our community through radical Christ-like love, and restorative service all stemming from the life of Jesus Christ. 

OUR PURPOSE as a church is to replicate the church of which Jesus spoke. A church that loves like Jesus, a church that listens like Jesus, a church that offers hope as Jesus did, and a church that in today’s culture is Uniquely Different and Passionately Real just as Jesus is real.


WHAT WE BELIEVE at University Church, our Statement of Faith captures the essence of what we believe. It serves as a guide for what we preach, teach, and communicate. University Church is apart of the Churches of Christ and Christian Union, a Wesleyan Arminian perspective.  We seek to live a truly authentic life that reflects the message of Christ and the full text of His Word. Most of the time people get caught up in the non-essentials and miss the point of why Jesus came and what He did for us. UC strives to focus on the essentials and not get caught up in the traps of the past. We welcome all types of people to join us for worship and fellowship. All backgrounds, dress, and beliefs are welcome among us. We hope to connect with everyone in the restorative work of God's kingdom as God seeks to bring all back into right relationship with Him.
