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.  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 difficulties that may arise together.  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 weeks 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.


Sad day.  Currently we have not upcoming events.  But check back soon.  We’re always planning something!

Sermons & More

Love, Forgiveness, and Justice (2-18)

Jesus prayed that we would be one! That we here would be one and that we would be one with the rest of His church. That means that you and I have to become part of the Gospel story. Jesus suffered horrendously before and during the Crucifixion for you. We can no longer afford to sit by and do nothing. You can’t make the excuse, “Let somebody else do it.” That it’s someone else’s thing. You are the one called to Go! Take the Next Step!

Authority & Control (2-11)

Our enemy uses our weaknesses, our biases, our hurt, and the situations and circumstances of life to further His kingdom in this world. God, in His infinite wisdom, authority, and control uses those same things for the good of those that Love Him, who walk according to His will: who walk in obedience.

Truth, Courage, and Choice (2-4)

As Believers we need to set aside our fear of what others are saying or doing or what we think they might say or do and take our Next Step. Either we walk in fear as Pilate did and in the process reject the Truth and serve the World, or we Take our Next Step in courage making the right choices, Truth choices, that Jesus has led us to…
