Thank you so much for visiting our site on the world-wide web.  The internet has given us a great opportunity to share with you the message and ministry of our church.

Derita Baptist Church (DBC) is a local church with a global concern.  We take seriously Christís command to take the gospel to the entire world. We see the whole world as our ministry area.  We want to do all that is within our power to see that the message of Jesus Christ is clearly presented to every person with whom we come in contact.

DBC is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention and the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and as such supports over 8,000 missionaries around the world.  In addition to this we regularly are personally involved in mission trips (ranging from one week to several months) both at home and abroad.  We often partner with para-church groups in these mission opportunities. 

DBC seeks to present Jesus Christ in everything we do.  You can find out exactly what we believe on our website.

If you are looking for a church home it is my prayer that you will consider Derita Baptist Church.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have about our ministries.  If you do not know Jesus Christ in a personal way, please allow us to share this free gift of eternal life with you today.

May the Lord Jesus continue to bless you as you seek to serve Him.
