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.

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.

Sermons & More

Participating (4-9)

Prayer, giving, discipleship, coming together keeps everybody informed, of one mind, and focused on the purpose God has given us together as a congregation of His Church. If you are not connected or plugged in, how are you actively a part of what God is seeking to accomplish?

Resurrection Day! (4-1)

The resurrection of Jesus is a call to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God (Micah 6:8). It is a call to learn and grow, to seek, to mature, it is a call to reason – an appeal from God to those dead in their sin, to come out of the tomb, to come to the light and receive eternal life.

The resurrection stops his people from asking, “what is best for me?”

The resurrection, the new life we have in Christ, allows us, enables us, to forgive others, ourselves,  Jesus said “Forgive them for they now not what they do.”
