Welcome to the DCFI website. As you tour this site, our prayer is that you see the mighty work that God is doing in this local body of believers. In June 2000, a small group of believers met in a clubhouse in east Tulsa. That Sunday was the beginning of what you will see here.
In Tulsa, there are many churches. Most of them I believe are preaching the gospel and trying to reach lost souls. The difference between DCFI and those churches are small to us but often big to them.
We believe the Gospel is for everyone. The Bible says “to them that believe he gave the power to become sons and daughters of God.”
DCFI is a church that preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ, with an open and affirming heart. Many of the people in our congregation have been rejected by other churches, whether it was because of social status, sexual orientation, or any of other different causes. While not everyone at DCFI fits into these categories, we are a church that has experienced grace and, therefore, we are to give grace.
Many of us at DCFI have spent much time researching the Word of God to find out what it truly has to say about subjects that churches have taken “religious” stands on. We believe that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. Furthermore, we feel that, when taken into proper context, God’s Word does not discriminate over race, gender, sexual orientation, or social status.
Maybe today, as you read this letter and as you view this website, you have been going through some questions of your own. Maybe you have thought you would have to be content, worshiping God in a place where there were no Spirit-filled believers, or maybe you thought you couldn’t worship God at all.
If this is the case, you have arrived at this website by divine appointment. God desires for you to know that He loves you; He has never written you off, but has written you down in the palm of His hands. The Father longs to refill you with the love that you have lost and to fill that emptiness in your life with His love, His grace, and His mercy.
Most of all, He wants you to know that He loves you. If you have been the prodigal son or daughter, there is good news for you today, as you read this letter, the Father is running to meet you, to put His robe upon you, and all the time still calling you. “Come home, come home, all who are weary, come home,” earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling.
I pray that you will hear and obey His call. Welcome home, my friend.
