About Us

Open Bible Church

Open Bible Church. The name really says it quite well. In a world with so many questions and confusion about spiritual matters, at OBC we open the bible to see what God has to say, because we believe his word has authority in our lives. When you join us on Sunday mornings you will find bible-based preaching that is God-focused, Spirit-filled, and will help you follow Christ. We are real people just like you, living out real faith, in real life.

OUR VISION is found in the bible in Ephesians 4:11-13:

  1. To bring people into unity with God and the body of Christ (his church)
  2. To develop people into spiritually mature followers of Christ
  3. To lead people into a lifestyle of complete surrender to the fullness of Christ

This is our F.O.C.U.S. - Fullness Of Christ, Unity, Spiritual maturity

Open Bible Church has a long history in Boone. The church has been affiliated with Open Bible Churches of Des Moines, Iowa, for over 70 years. It has been at its current location since 1986 and was expanded in 2008.

Lead Pastor

Pastor Phil and Naomi Waldo

Pastor Phil Waldo never really wanted to be a lead pastor. He was very content as an assistant, leading worship, overseeing youth and various other ministries. But God had other plans. Through a series of compelling circumstances and Godly counsel, it became clear that God was calling Phil onward. Phil believes in being obedient to the call of God and ever since that calling, he has been faithful, considering it a privilege to serve as Lead Pastor at OBC.

Pastor Phil and Naomi have been married since 1985 and have two adult children, Michelle (Austin) and Jacob (Christina). Phil is musically inclined and has written many songs, some of which we sing here. Naomi volunteers at the church office as well as working part-time at a local clinic doing x-rays.
