Christ and Gospel Centered

We preach Christ crucified(I Corinthians 1:23). We believe in the saving power of God’s glorious Gospel (Romans 1:16;I Timothy 1:11) We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8, 9). The person and work of Jesus Christ are central to all we do.

MIssions-minded

Decatur Bible Church has a rich history of faithfully supporting missionary efforts both at home and abroad. We encourage our members tp be involved in missionary outreach: personally, prayerfully and financially. Our missionaries are listed on this website. 
 
 
Servant Minded
Every believer has been given a unique set of spiritual gifts (I Peter 4:10). God’s purpose is for His saints to be equipped to use their gifts to the service of the body of Christ which is His local church (Ephesians 4:12). We encourage all of our members to discover their gift and then to use their gift for the glory of God. 
 

 Family Oriented
 
We believe that God intends for the church to be a “family” (I Peter 1:22). We value our relationships within the church, the body of Christ. As brothers and sisters in Christ we are mindful of Christ’s command to us that we should “Love one another” (I John 4:7,8) from which all the other “one another” commands flow.
