Welcome

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

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.

I’m New

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.

Knowing Peace

Wholeness, spiritual well-being, lack of worry, freedom from fear, even in the midst of troubling circumstances, can only come as we put into practice the knowledge of God that we have been given. Then you will experience God, then you will know Peace. Do you Trust Him, is your faith in Christ alone?

Grace & Obedience

We tend to distort Jesus’ teaching about being in the Kingdom from “Good News” to bad news—into an impossible call to scale moral peaks that are too high for anyone to climb. Instead, we should read the parables and the gospels as the fact that God has chosen, out of love, to enter into relationship with His Creation, with all of mankind, through what He accomplished on the cross thru His Son Jesus Christ. We know that God gives guidance through His Word about what pleases Him and what does not, and that through the enabling power of the Holy Spirit we can walk in obedience to His known will.  And when we choose to follow that guidance, it is because God graciously enables our obedience as disciples in the Kingdom.

The Grateful & the Dead 11-18

But a grateful person, a mature Christian, realizes that the life they have is a gift from God and any blessings received came from Him. In fact, God’s Word in James tells us that “every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights…” The believer says that everything I have – abilities, talents, and the things I possess – is a gift from God. I would not be who I am without Him.
