Cathedral of Hope

Who We Are

Extravagant Grace. Radical Inclusion. Relentless Compassion.

Cathedral of Hope Oklahoma City is a liberal, inclusive community of faith created to provide a place for people to worship God, serve God and humanity, and grow in faith.

We are affiliated with the United Church of Christ and were founded in 2000 by the Cathedral of Hope in Dallas, Texas.

We are an ecumenical church, meaning that our congregants come from many different denominational and faith backgrounds. Our worship service borrows diverse traditions from these different backgrounds.

No matter who you are, or where you are in life's journey, you are welcome here. We welcome and include people regardless of faith background, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, ability or race.

We are an open and affirming congregation with an outreach to LGBTQIA people.

We celebrate an "open" communion. You do not have to be a member of our church, or any church at all. Everyone is invited to participate, just the way you are.

We hope you will let us know if there is any way that we can minister to you by answering any questions you might have about us.
