Loving God and loving people: It’s a simple phrase, but it shapes everything we do here at Devonshire. Whether you’re looking to connect with us through a Sunday-morning gathering, a Life Group, Little Lambs Preschool, one of our youth or children’s ministry programs, or some other ministry event, it is our hope that you experience a gracious and loving people who have been transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We want you to know that you are welcome here, and we would consider it a privilege to serve as a place where you grow in your love for Jesus and others.

 

What to Expect

Easter Sunday_0003Our Sunday worship services start at 10:30am, and usually end before 12:00pm.  Park in any of our 3 parking areas (map). Dress in whatever you’re most comfortable in.  When you arrive, someone from our Greeting Team will meet you at the front door, and assist you in finding a seat.  If you are interested, they will help you find the right classrooms for your children too.  You will not be singled out during the service or asked to stand, but we encourage you to stop by our Information Booth (located in the rear of the sanctuary) to find details on Life Groups, Children’s activities, and other ministry opportunities.

Our Values and Beliefs

Since August 28, 1964, Devonshire Church has been about proclaiming Christ in our changing world. Our mission? Helping people find and follow Jesus by proclaiming the redemptive message of God’s love.

Here at Devonshire, we believe that the Bible is the Word of God, and that it contains the only true way to our salvation. We believe that salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ, true repentance, the forgiveness of sins, and following after Christ. With that said, the following are some of values that shape us as a community of faith:

  • 2015-02-08 Into The Light Document1Worship: We are a church that worships Jesus and puts loving, following, and knowing him as our number-one priority.
  • Gospel: The Gospel as stated above is the center of who we are and defines and compels us. It is the good news of Jesus Christ that transforms us and has formed us.
  • Community: We are a church that strives after authentic biblical community.
  • Service: We are a church that engages in missions relevant to our surrounding community and in the different parts of the world advancing the Gospel and meeting needs.
  • Making Disciples: We are a church that is obedient to the Great Commission: making disciples locally and around the world.  In all our ministries, our aim is “to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).
