Welcome

Our Vision: To see communities turned upside down through the next step of obedience.

Service is at 10:30 every Sunday – we would love for you to join us!

We are so glad you stopped by!  In today’s world “church” is many things.  Our aim is to be the Church as Christ intended: imperfect people loving imperfect people.  We want to welcome those who enter our doors, for the first time or for the 100th time, to feel accepted and loved.  We want to reach out and make a difference in our community.  We want to do life together as a family – working through any difficulties that may arise, being an example of what love really is.  And we want you to be a part of that!

Take some time to look around.  Please make sure to contact us for any questions – we will be happy to answer.

Want to know how we are actively turning our community upside down?  Check out our outreach page for more information.

Our current sermon series:

Fire, Holy Spirit, Do, Don't, Thessalonians, Paul, Epistle, Letters, Church, Congregation, Holy Living, Prophecy

 

Paul gives us advice on how to live a life inside of God’s will, and therefore start a fire within ourselves and the Church.

Welcome

We are so glad you decided to find out more about Dayton First Church of God.  We hope you will take the time to look around.  Be sure to contact us if you have any questions.

What to Expect

At Dayton First Church of God, we have a “Come as You Are” attitude.  No expectations and no requirements for stepping through the front door.  Each week we have greeters at both entrances.  If you have any questions or need any help, let them know and they will be happy to assist you.  Find out more about what we believe here.

Common Questions

  What should I wear?  Whatever you are comfortable in.  Casual or dressy – there is usually a mix!

  What will the music be like?  This is also usually a mix.  We favor contemporary music but also throw in traditional hymns to celebrate our history and where we came from.

  Is there anything for my kids? Yes!  We start our worship service with everyone together so that kids can learn and grow as we worship together.  After singing, prayer, and our offering time, the pastor will read a Bible story to the kids.  Then they are dismissed for class time during the message.

  How long is the service? Our  service lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Giving

We believe in cheerful giving (2 Cor. 9:7).  How is God calling you to generosity?

By giving to this church you are helping to make a difference in the local community.  Not only are you helping to keep the lights on here, but you are also empowering individuals to “go and make disciples,” caring for the “least of these,” and turning our community upside down!

Thank you for joining us in spreading the Gospel.  We are eternally grateful.

Sermons & More

Ready Church! 11-17

In Experiencing God Day by Day we are told that “Biblically, waiting on the Lord is never passive; it is always active. Waiting requires us to cease form our own pursuits and give God our complete attention.” We are to be doing what our lord and master commands us to do. We are to be ready for His return (See Luke 12:36-48)!  How can you be ready if you are not His, not walking in faith, not obedient to what you know to do? Listen, I am trying my best to warn and equip you; Jesus is coming back!

Pleasing God 10-13

Pornography use in the U. S. is at an all time high and that has bled into congregations throughout our country and the world… “Pornography hurts adults, children, couples, families, and society. Among adolescents, pornography hinders the development of a healthy sexuality, and among adults, it distorts sexual attitudes and social realities. In families, pornography use leads to marital dissatisfaction, infidelity, separation, and divorce.”

Sanctification 10-6

Whole denominations have fallen away claiming to be open and accepting, out of love, of what God clearly calls sin. Jesus never accepted, encouraged, or endorsed sin. He loved the sinner and hated the sin. When Jesus comes back, He is coming in Judgment.  Judgment day, the Lord’s Day, the Last Day is coming.
