Where the Welcome is Wide


The First Presbyterian Church at Dayton is an open and affirming church,

embracing diversity in our congregation and community,

and affirming the dignity and worth

of every person created in the image of God.


We continue to honor the principle

that discrimination is incompatible with Christ's Gospel

of unconditional love.


We welcome into full membership and participation in the Body of Christ

persons of every race, language, age, gender, sexual orientation,

physical or mental ability, economic or marital status, and faith background.


We affirm and celebrate all loving and committed relationships.


We acknowledge the history of the institutional church in condemning and excluding people based on their identity, and in condoning such discrimination in silence.  We commit ourselves to work diligently to end such oppression and discrimination.


Following the example of Jesus Christ, we hereby declare ourselves to be an open and affirming church.

Scriptural Focus:  1 Corinthians 1:10-18

2020 is a presidential election year, fueling anxiety in a time already defined by division. We all stand to be pulled into the vortex of strong emotion that center us in feelings and away from facts.  But - Scripture offers hope.  Guideposts that offer direction in the midst of complex issues, loud voices, and thinly veiled agendas. As you consider which direction to turn in, think first about the ground on which you stand.


Our sermon series seeks to walk through 1 Corinthians, as a way to gain strength for the journey during an election year.

Our sanctuary is fully accessible to all!
