Our Purpose, Leaders & Values

OUR PURPOSE is to be a Biblically functioning community of believers who are demonstrating the relevance of JESUS CHRIST in today’s society, turning people who are far from Him into fully devoted followers of His. We seek to live by this phrase: Demonstrating the relevance of JESUS CHRIST in today’s society.  This is our desire, our prayer, our objective!
 
We do this by serving and loving the community we are in.  In a generation that is challenged with bad news, Jesus is good news.  We seek to live out the good news of Jesus so that others will see and believe.
 
Jesus told His family to love God and love people.  Everything else in life hangs on these two instructions.  We long to be a family that lives by what pleases our Father.  Our passion is to see others knowing the incredible freedom and joy that comes when people take these two instructions and apply them into their own lives.
 
Growing is part of everyone’s life.  We grow in so many ways: Students seek to grow their intellectual capacity, a sportsman grows and nurtures his talent, people grow older, etc.  So it seems natural that every believer should grow spiritually.  At DBC you will be encouraged often to take the next step to growing spiritually.

Our Values:

 
WE VALUE being a contagious community of servants who love God and love others.
 
WE VALUE being compassionate caregivers to all people.
 
WE VALUE cultivating believers of all ages as models of His character.
 
WE VALUE being committed and equipped ministers of His grace and love.
 
WE VALUE caring and visionary servant leadership.
 
WE VALUE the communication of God’s word through Bible-centred preaching and teaching.
 
WE VALUE corporate worship and prayer, always being open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
 
WE VALUE responsible stewardship of spiritual gifts, talents, finances, resources and time.

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
