DCFI is a diverse group of people, who either have been rejected by mainstream religion for one reason or another or are simply tired of all the religious junk. We understand (because we have experienced) what it feels like to not be accepted and not allowed to worship God, simply because of race, gender, social or financial status, sexual orientation, political affiliation, religious background, and many other reasons.
But we are not about all that stuff. We are about worshipping the one true loving and merciful God in spirit and in truth. Anyone who has the desire to know God and wants to worship God is certainly welcome here!
A place where JESUS is LORD!
Jesus Christ is #1 here at DCFI. No other God. No other religion. Our message here is about Jesus and His love, mercy, and grace toward ALL people. He is exalted and glorified because HE is awesome!
A place YOU can call HOME!
At DCFI, you will find a family of loving people who really care about you. The people here are genuine and sincere. We are not perfect, only human and forgiven; and we love and strive to help each other.
Some Things We Are About
Contemporary, exciting, informal, and fun.
Energy, excitement, and buzz
There is a sense of anticipation of God’s presence and power in our midst.
Reflecting the sound of a generation
It is probably not your grandparents’ music (although some of it is). Sometimes it’s loud; it’s exciting; it’s your personal experience with God.
Accessible, attractive, and inviting
A non-judgmental atmosphere of celebration that invites active participation and worship of the Lord. We try hard to avoid the old traditions that confuse people. Freedom from obligation allows people the freedom to participate or observe until they are comfortable taking the next step.
Appreciation of worship
Through music, banners, and many other forms of worship, Christ can be presented in a fresh, appealing, and inviting way!
Grace-receivers and grace-givers
We as Christians desire to live under grace, to teach it always in our ministries and outreach, and to live as God’s people under grace, not law or legalism.
Reconciling, affirming, and inclusive
Not to be confused with inclusive language, Diversity is a family, embracing the full spectrum of race, age, gender, family status, sexual orientation, economic status, and denominational background.
About relationships, not politics
Because they have eternal dimension, relationships with God and with others are infinitely more valuable than programs and materials. Relationships always take precedence over programs. We emphasize people, not agendas.
A genuine atmosphere of acceptance
Our mission is to provide a safe place for all people to worship God. We as a church do not want to erect walls that keep out certain people who add texture and clarity to the message of grace. Our mission is to love unconditionally, to stand with the outcast, and to resist the temptation to judge harshly.
Sermons that are positive and practical
Bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to people of the twenty-first century is a challenge that we have answered with sermons that are informative, entertaining, and practical. The sermons at DCFI are to help people live productive and enjoyable lives that are pleasing to God and to make them an enjoyable journey.
Unleashing of gifts
Equipping the people of God to discover their one-of-a-kind gifts and unique calling to ministry. Leadership is about helping others discover the fulfilling work God uniquely designed them to do and then is empowering them to do it.
