Get to know who we are before you visit.

DC Church is a group of happy, caring, peaceful people who love God, serving Him and following His Son Jesus in discipleship. We want nothing more than for other people to discover Jesus, too, and to have an opportunity to become a part of a good church. DC Church is traditional in philosophy, progressive in methodology and orthodox in belief. The church's purpose is to worship God, connect with others in small groups and to serve Him in the church and the world.

Becoming A Member

How To Join DC Church:

We would love for you to make DC Church your church home. You are welcome to come for membership at the end of any worship service. The last step in membership is to attend the membership class, which is held at least once a month. You may attend the class either before or after coming for membership at a worship service. There are several ways to come for membership:

Join by Profession of Faith

Those who are asking Jesus to be their Savior for the first time, or for the first time publicly, may come by profession of faith. At a later time you will be baptized.*

Join by Baptism

Those who have made a public profession of faith in Jesus at a previous time, but have not been baptized can join pending baptism.* 

Join by Letter of Membership

You can join by transferring your membership from another church that practices scriptural baptism.* We will send for your membership.

Join by Statement

If you think that transferring your membership from your previous church would be impossible for some reason, you may join by statement that you have accepted Jesus as your Savior at a previous time and that you have been baptized.*

* Baptism is by immersion in water. It is a symbol of the believer's death, burial and resurrection with Jesus.
