Our Beliefs

We believe in one God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.
We believe that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified, regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.

Our Mission

DCN is committed to making disciples through reaching our community with the life-changing message of Christ’s love in relevant and innovative ways.  Our mandate is to be a community of Christ-followers who KNOW God, GROW Together, and GO to Serve:

We seek to KNOW God by learning who He is through worship, teaching and by accepting Christ’s invitation to live for Him by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We seek to GROW Together in our relationship with God while living as a true biblical community.
We seek to GO to Serve our church community, neighbors, the North Shore and beyond to meet real needs as we reflect God’s love.

We recognize that we are all sinners saved by grace and we welcome all to be transformed by Christ’s love.
We want to be a community so filled with the love and compassion of Christ that we can’t help but share it with others.
We envision countless people being changed by His love as we fully engage our God-given gifts as the body of DCN.

 
What to Expect

We gather together every Sunday morning for two identical celebration worship services at 9:00 and 11:00. As soon as you arrive, you’ll notice some differences you may not expect!  You’ll feel right at home with our casual, relaxed “coffee shop” vibe and free refreshments; genuinely friendly people; inspiring modern worship music led by a live band; engaging Biblical messages and two staffed nursery ministries.

Come as you are and be yourself.  You’re welcome to slip in and out anonymously, but we hope you’ll hang around and make friends. Our goal is that no one stands alone!

NOTEFor security, parents with children planning to attend either ministry must first visit the Kid’s Check-in Center in the lobby. We recommend arriving at least 20 minutes before either service for check-in.
