In 1909, Daventon Baptist Church opened their doors for the first time. Although over 100 years have passed and the world has completely changed - our mission has not. Through His teachings, we strive to grow our congregation in their understanding and principles in Christ. We are a family here at Daventon, and we hope to join yours.
We connect to Jesus through worship, reading His Word, studying with others and gaining knowledge of His power. We want everyone to know the love and grace that only Jesus can provide in a world that can sometimes feel chaotic.
We want to reach near and far with the love of Christ through serving and partnering with other ministries to grow the body of Christ. We serve locally, globally and within the walls of our building.
We want to raise up disciples to go out and minister to the world. In the workplace, in the community and within the church, we want to teach others how to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
