Who We Are

Meet Our Pastors

WHOA...DO ALL THOSE GUYS HAVE THE SAME LAST NAME?

UBIC Holly Hill is located at 560 Flomich St. in Holly Hill, Florida. We have 2 morning services on Sundays at 9 and 11 am.  We also have small groups for all ages that meet on Wednesday nights at 7pm. 

Our church is led by Rev. Chuck McKeown, Rev. Matt McKeown, and Rev. Josh McKeown but they prefer the more informal title of ‘pastor’.  The word pastor means shepherd.  Pastor Chuck has been the lead pastor of UBIC Holly Hill since 1988.  In 1998 Pastor Matt joined the staff.  In the summer of 2009 Pastor Josh began taking over the youth responsibilities at the church.  It truly is a privilege to minister with family.  All three men enjoy all types of music and play guitar.  Josh also plays drums and enjoys building things.  Matt prefers to stay indoors and runs Sound Mind Studios, while Pastor Chuck loves being in the sun and working in the yard.  All three men have a passion for teaching and preaching and using creative tools for getting God’s message across.  Ask Pastor Chuck about the time he grilled fish in church!  While your at it ask Pastor Matt about duct tape!  Or ask Pastor Josh, ‘Will it Blend?’ You can find Pastor Chuck, Pastor Matt and Pastor Josh on Facebook and you can follow Pastor Matt on twitter at @UBICpastorMatt.

We'd love to hear from you!

What We Believe

We are a Christian church. As such, there are certain things we believe.

  • There is only one God and he created the universe
  • He exists as a triune (3-in-1, Father-Son-Holy Spirit) being
  • He has given us his word, the Bible, and we are to follow it
  • We can only have a relationship to God through the sacrifice of Jesus
  • There is a literal Heaven and a literal Hell
  • Jesus is the only way to Heaven
  • We as Christians have an obligation to help those in need
  • We are expected to not only learn what the Bible says, but do what it says
  • We are to spread the love and message of Jesus to everyone
  • Our church was put here to minister to those in our community

Our Mission

Love, Learn, Live.

Our logo has been taken from the logo of the United Brethren In Christ logo.  We use the cross to represent love because of the love that Christ showed for us when he died for us.  The Bible says that this is the kind of self sacrificing love that we should have for one another.  We use the flame of the Holy Spirit to represent learning because Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would guide us into all truth.  We use the 2 people clasping arms to represent living out our faith in front of others in an effort to tell them about Jesus.

This also gives us a picture of what it looks like to grow as a Christian in discipleship.  We are drawn to God by the LOVE of Jesus, we then begin to LEARN from the Bible and from fellow believers as the Holy Spirit guides us into all truth, and as we mature we LIVE out that faith in acts of kindness, sharing our faith with others, and bringing the unchurched into the fellowship so the process can take place over and over. 

We believe this model is Biblical and easy to relate to people.  If you want to know what our church’s mission is AND our method of discipleship, it’s simple.  3 words.  Love, Learn, Live.
