DBC is a community of redeemed people who have been born from above through Christ's life, death and resurrection. Having a new life in Jesus Christ we are now called to be His disciples in the Kingdom. We have a life available to all who will but put their confidence in Jesus. Because our new life in Christ is not a solitary path, we understand the need for all of the dimensions of the body of Christ to help us on our way as we learn how to put into practice the things Jesus taught. As a diverse group of unique people from all different walks of life who have found a common relationship in the Lord Jesus Christ, we desire to be the light of the world where we are. Holding forth the Trinitarian God of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we desire Him to be honored and glorified in all aspects of our life, worship and service.
We are a part of the Kingdom of God, a community of redeemed people from various walks of life, backgrounds and traditions. Therefore we do not build artificial partitions that result in separation, rather, we together pursue our vision of becoming different sorts of people who have been changed through spending time with Jesus of Nazareth. We seek to present Jesus Christ as He really is, the One who came and showed us how to live, died for us that we too might die with Him, and rose again to give us new Life from above. We desire to be the kinds of people, in cooperation with the work of the Holy Spirit within and among us who live differently because we are different. The consequence of which is being a demonstration to our world of the kind of abundant life that is so often difficult to put into words. We are not striving to be ‘arm-chair’ theologians, perfecting and honing our doctrine to prove that we are right and everyone else is wrong but very much striving to be different kinds of people. We are recovering sinners all, learning together the great message of life and hope Jesus taught and demonstrated. A life that is, in His words, eternal. Our vision is the Great Commission of Matthew 28:18-20. Knowing that He is the One who has say over everything in heaven and on earth, being confident that He will be with us every step of the way until the job is done, we strive to make disciples as we immerse them in the Trinitarian presence of God and then teach them how to put into practice the things that Jesus lived, taught and demonstrated. We invite you to join with us as we live out our discipleship to Jesus Christ, learning how to live our lives as He would live our lives if our lives were His.
We are headed to something very simple, yet very complex. For each follower of Christ to intend to be a disciple of Christ and be brought to wholeness in Christ. Walking into the fullness of life He came to give us. The complete inner renewing of our whole being - our entire character into Christlikeness. So every area of 'ministry', 'service' and, indeed, our entire life together as the 'Body of Christ' must relate to and further this magnificent opportunity He makes possible. Where are we headed? For now, that each individual part of the whole could say with clarity of purpose: I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. What does God get out of this project? The people we have become, who will be His greatest treasure. He will hold us out to the universe as the ultimate proof of His wisdom, power and holiness.
