The Ambassador ministry at Denton Bible seeks to welcome new guests with the love of Christ. During a visit to DBC, Ambassadors serve as hosts to guide new guests to services and classes while building relationships, making a positive first impression, and opening the door for follow up and assimilation.

As one of the two ordinances DBC practices, we desire to spend some time in preparation before participating in a baptism. Two short classes are offered eight times a year on Sunday mornings between the morning services as a way to prepare to be baptized. Baptisms occur on Sunday afternoons in the Chapel about four times a year. A Baptism schedule will be provided upon request.

DBC Cares

Are you, or someone you know in our church family, in need?  Whether there is a crisis, an illness, someone in the hospital, need for a visit or a meal, or a widow that needs help, DBC Cares wants to know! It is our desire to provide temporary help during times of need. To communicate needs please contact DBC Cares so the need can be shared with the ministries of the church and help can be on its way.
To share a need, please fill out the form at dbccares


Greeters at DBC are there to welcome attendees to church each Sunday helping to provide a warm start to your time in worship. It is the goal of the greeters to help create an atmosphere suitable for preparing hearts for worship.

Starting Point

Located across from the chapel and outside of the main sanctuary, Starting Point is located in two rooms. Starting Point Connections is an open room where we seek to “connect” church goers to information, small groups, ministries, and classes to assist them in becoming assimilated into DBC church life.  The Starting Point Visitors Reception offers a place for new guests to receive a warm welcome and refreshments while learning more about DBC.  Starting Point is the place where you will find an Elder or Pastoral Staff to ask questions about the sermon message or inquiries about DBC doctrine, beliefs, or philosophies.
