Changing lives through the transforming power of Christ.




Worship is what we give to God. It is a time where we give God that which is right, natural, and called for; namely praise and thanksgiving. When you truly come into the presence of God is it a life-transforming moment. Such encounters are relevant to all aspects of life. We become wiser, stronger, and most importantly more loving. Worship, while primarily God directed, is always beneficial to the worshiper. That kind of inspirational worship is the experience you will find at Christ Church.

Spiritual Growth is a never-ending process of exploring and discovering how God is working for us to become Christ-like in our everyday lives. The church is responsible for providing the steps and encouragement for growth to take place, yet the individual is responsible for his or her own Spiritual Growth. Individuals grow at their own rate, but all grow best within a community with one another. At Christ Church, spiritual growth is incorporated for all ages. We have options for children, students, and all adults.

SERVING OTHERS IS WOVEN INTO THE DNA OF CHRIST CHURCH. We respond to human needs and services in areas of emergency relief, rebuilding lives, homes, and livelihoods. We stand in partnership with individuals as they develop their lives to achieve the greatness God wishes for them. Serving is built on connection, it is not a one-time occurrence. We pray for each other, we share joys and challenges with each other; we build a relationship with each other.


From its beginning, disciple making has been part of Christ Church’s DNA. The story of Christ Church began in 1951 when a group from several other United Methodist churches in the area felt the call to reach out and begin to make disciples in the south Dayton suburbs of Kettering and Oakwood.

In 1957 the current location of Kettering Campus was purchased. Responding to the changes in the community and expanding ministries over the years, several additions have been made to the facility. In 2009, Christ Church gave birth to our South Campus that ministers to the southern Montgomery/northern Warren county area. In 2017, Christ Church faithfully answered God’s call and launched Mosaic Campus to reach a multi-ethnic audience.

As a result of all the efforts of those who call Christ Church home, the church today has more than 2,100 members and has a strong reputation throughout Dayton and the world as a committed family of Christians dedicated to fulfilling the biblical mandate to “change lives through the transforming power of Christ.”
