Our Mission & Core Values
We are passionately becoming more like Jesus, and are committed to transforming our homes, church, community and the world.
At Dunwoody Baptist Church, we affirm four core values that influence everything we do. Each one represents a specific posture of church life: upward, inward, outward and onward.
We believe that worship is a deeply meaningful practice and is central to the life of DBC. We provide a variety of weekly and seasonal opportunities for believers and seekers to connect with God, through music and singing, quiet reflection, private and communal prayer, and reading and listening to God’s Word.
Those who believe in God and embrace His will for their lives through Jesus Christ are people on a journey of faith called discipleship. We believe a disciple is one who follows Jesus as the Savior of the World and who commits to live, speak and act just as He did. Our programs and classes are designed to encourage and strengthen faith by offering instruction and life application practices that help us on this journey.
We believe that the gospel of Jesus is not merely for each person to enjoy a private relationship with God. Rather, we are meant to walk this journey of faith together. At DBC, we value deep, genuine relationships and urge everyone to participate in Bible study classes and Life Groups. When you come here, you become a part of a family where we learn alongside, pray with and care for one another.
We believe the Church was entrusted with a mission to tell the good news of Jesus Christ through both word and good deed. This calling is for every follower of Jesus. Therefore, at DBC, we commit ourselves both corporately and individually to use our resources to further God’s mission. We desire to see God’s kingdom advance from Dunwoody out to all the nations.
While subject to no other organizational body, Dunwoody Baptist Church has chosen to affiliate with the local Southern Baptist association, the Georgia Baptist Convention, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and the Southern Baptist Convention and will, insofar as possible, cooperate with these groups and support their programs.
