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:

Corinthians, Connect, Connected, Community, Plugged in, Paul, Letters


Has the Church today become disconnected from our original purpose?  Have we forgotten obedience?  Despite the fallen world we live in, it is time to reconnect.

I’m New


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.  And get to know our staff and Elders a little bit better 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 short Bible story just for the kids.  They are then dismissed for class (3 years old – 5th grade) for the remainder of service.  More about those classes can be found here.  If you have a child under the age of 3, we LOVE for them to be in service.  We understand that infants and young toddlers will make noise, cry, move around, and more and that’s okay!  We don’t mind at all.  Jesus said to let the little children come and we wholeheartedly embrace that.

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

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

Connected by the Spirit 5/24

At the moment of sanctification we receive the Holy Spirit. God’s Word tells us that believers are indwelled with the Spirit, that He moves into our hearts, that He enables us to live as believers and Christ followers.

Connected by Determination 5/17

Many times I have experienced and have heard from others, how a lesson or sermon has affected someone in a way that was not planned, seen, or intended. God stirred that person and opened their eyes, through His word. And His purpose was fulfilled through what was preached, taught, or shared from His word.

That is part of the mystery and power seen in the preaching of the Gospel, the message of the cross. So do not ever hesitate to share the Word of God; you may be planting or watering a seed, cultivating or nurturing a young plant, or even bringing it to harvest. God’s Word never goes out empty.

Connected by Calling 5/10

The calling of God is for all who choose to believe and accept or answer the call. The moment you answered the call, accepted the invitation, by believing and repentance you were connected to God and His Church. Jesus brought you into the Kingdom and gives you eternal life while you walk with Him.
