• Christ-Centered

    We will lift up the name of Christ in all that we do. Our work must be for God’s glory, rooted in sound biblical doctrine, persistent prayer, and godliness in all our thoughts, words, and deeds.

  • Cultural Sensitivity

    We partner knowing even after many trips, we may still be largely ignorant of the many challenges our brothers and sisters in other cultures face. Therefore, we will strive to work collaboratively to choose wise, biblical, and culturally-appropriate methods which bear spiritual fruit.

  • Receptor-Focused

    We will work to create healthy, on-going, collaborative partnerships with local leaders that are receptor-focused. We will build this partnership with the understanding that they (not us) are the leaders and we come under them to serve together.

  • Competency

    We care about bringing competent leaders and workers to the mission field. Besides screening and training our general missionary team, we also recruit for project-specific skills such as medical, electrical, plumbing and construction. This allows us to work in tandem with a local ministry to address expressed needs effectively.

  • Humility

    Team leaders and participants must display Christ-centered, spiritually-mature servanthood. We will build mutual trust and accountability by “getting our hands dirty” alongside our local partners. We will engage by asking questions and listening first.

  • Team-Based

    Leaders and participants on our side will work as a team. When we bring our ideas to the team, we will hold it loosely and build consensus. If it is a Holy Spirit inspired idea, we will see if God is speaking the same thing to others.

  • Unity

    We will uphold the unity of our team and our church at all times.

BELONG

We belong to Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. And He invites us to belong to a community of faith. Whether a lifetime Christian, a new believer or just curious about the faith, you are welcome here at Damascus Road Community Church. Understand what we believe, who makes up our leadership team and the pathway to membership.

CONNECT

In a larger church it can be a challenge to feel personally connected. Allow us to help you. Whether searching for calendar information, a larger event in which to get a better taste of DRCC, a smaller group to be a part of, or personal care for the struggles and celebrations of life… this is a good place to start.

GROW

Grow in biblical knowledge and spiritual wisdom. Know what you believe and how to apply it to your everyday life. Sink deep roots into God’s Word through our ministries, classes or sermon library resources, and be better equipped to give an answer for your faith, discern truth and weather the storms of life.

GIVE

As Christ gave his life for us, so also we give back to our local community of faith a portion of our time, talent and treasure. In so doing we release the grip of selfishness and idolatry in our lives. And our brothers and sisters receive the encouragement they need to carry on.

GO

Beyond our home, school and workplace, Damascus Road Community Church offers opportunities to go near and far in sharing the Good News of Christ through tangible acts of service. Our missions’ teams partner with established churches and pastors to spread the Gospel, nurture long-term relationships and build sustainable solutions to address needs for today and into the future.
