Mercy Ministries

Our vision for mercy ministry at DCC is centered on upholding the value and dignity of God’s most vulnerable image bearers, so that we might both declare the good news of Jesus Christ and be a display of that good news to our city.

A People Devoted to Good Works

Paul’s letter to Titus calls for Christians to adhere to sound doctrine and godly living in all spheres of their lives—in the church, in their households, and among the non-believers in the world. Paul summarizes this godly behavior, which comes from and accords with sound doctrine, as “good works” which he says are excellent and profitable for people (3:8) and helpful to those in urgent need (3:14). He calls Christians, because of the grace they have received in Christ, to be examples of (2:7), zealous for (2:14), and devoted to good works (3:8,14). Pastor Justin, who oversees our mercy ministries, recently preached on this from Titus 3:1-8, which you can listen to below (51 mins):
