About Our Church
Open Door Community Church is a nondenominational Christian Church.
Many have been bruised in the name of “religion.” We believe that it is time for the healing to begin! Our worship is contemporary, meaningful, uplifting, and fun.
Open Door Community Churches offer a message of reconciliation and bridge building between the Christian community and those who have felt alienated from it through law-filled teachings not based on the grace we believe Christ intended. We exist to proclaim God’s unconditional love to all and to provide fellowship, friendship and spiritual opportunities to all.Read More
We at Open door want to provide a community that proclaims the inclusive, loving message of our Savior Jesus Christ.
And this is why:
Too many times today the Evangelical churches are seen as hate groups. Their songs speak of war, their sermons sound hateful and judgmental, and their atmosphere is exclusionary. We at Open door want to provide a community that proclaims the inclusive, loving message of our Savior Jesus Christ.Read More

Our sanctuary is dedicated to Pastor Randy Eddy-McCain’s father Randal McCain Sr. At the dedication ceremony, Randy’s mom Marcel gave the following statement:
“I have been so excited this weekend, just thinking about it, that God has given us this place to meet and worship Him every Sunday. Isn’t it wonderful? God is a good god. He loves each one of us just as we are. He love you that way. You’re an original to God, and He loves you. So don’t ever get down and think nobody cares for you, because God is there and God loves you.”
Then she continued in prayer:
“Our heavenly Father, we pray that you will bless this congregation. I pray that your work will go on and out from this church. Let this be a filling station for your people who are working for you. Keep them close to you, Lord. Let them feel your love, and God protect them from all harm. I pray that you will keep this church as a special place, so that when people come into this building, they will feel your presence. Oh! God! bless the pastor. And Jesus, go with him and all who are standing behind him. Stand with them and bless them. May the news of this church spread out into this community, Lord, that people may know that there is something unsual going on at Open Door Church. It’s all because of your love, Lord. Help this church to be a beacon of light to the surrounding communities, and may it be a well– known church because of the work that is being done and the blessings that are coming forth from this church. We dedicate it to you right now, Lord. You’ve given this church to us and now we give it back to you. We love you, Lord and praise you in Jesus’ name. Amen.”Read More
