Outreach

During these strange times, aka COVID-19, Dublin Baptist is reaching out locally and to Central Ohio to serve the many needs that are all-around us. Since March 2020, we are invested in the Dublin Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, assisting families who have fallen on difficult times, and are bi-weekly delivering hundreds of pounds of food to both Stowe Mission and the Worthington Resource Pantry. In addition, DBC has donated to date over 7,000 pounds of food and hygiene-related supplies to our area ministry partners. To learn more how you can be involved in any areas of these community outreaches, please contact Pastor Paul Pyle by email: ppyle@dublinbaptist.com

Caring about our community is a core value here @ Dublin Baptist, because our Savior, Jesus Christ teaches us in Scripture to “love your neighbor as yourself.” This is our missional approach and extends outwardly to those in our community, across the Buckeye State, throughout North American, and to the ‘Ends of the Earth.’ To prove it Dublin Baptist is a multi-ethnic church that has 5 language groups meeting here on any given Sunday. These include our Japanese, Chinese, Tamil/Hindi (India), Portuguese/Spanish, and English language bodies. Yet, we are ONE church who loves Jesus and loves each other. In addition Dublin Baptist supports 25 missionaries, mission organizations, and church planters all-across the globe.

Our outreach ministry is designed specifically to impact lives with the gospel message of Jesus Christ. If you would like to learn more or how you can be involved, please contact Pastor Paul Pyle in our church office or by email: ppyle@dublinbaptist.com

Evangelism

Dublin Baptist is a gospel-centered church that is passionate about the "Great Commission." Matthew 28:19a says, "Therefore go and make disciples of every nation baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost..." to do this we must be intentional about equipping our church to share the "Good News" with authenticity and clarity. Unsure how to share your faith with your neighbor or co-worker? Not to worry, Dublin Baptist has you covered with classes in evangelism training, community outreach opportunities, and special events that are available year-round with the purpose of making disciples as you go.

DBC Reach is one such way that we are able to reach-out and share the love of Christ. In addition, we periodically do ‘on-the-job’ training through Bill Glass Prison Ministries, as well as, seasonal outreach foci designed to share God’s love to friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers.

Wanting to learn more about Baptism? Awesome! Dublin Baptist has quarterly baptism classes designed specifically for both children and adults alike. For more information, please contact Pastor Paul… ppyle@dublinbaptist.com

Missions

The words of Christ in Acts 1:8b, "You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." are the central foci of the Dublin Baptist Missions Ministry. To accomplish this higher call, Dublin Baptist sets out to engage in a 3-part mission strategy, that we call "being on-mission." The first step is to PRAY! While every person may not be able to go on a mission trip, we can all pray for missions and our missionaries. Prayer is the catalyst that moves the hand of God. Second, we can GIVE! When you give to Dublin Baptist, over 20% of your gift goes to several SBC mission entities (International missions, North American missions, Ohio missions and Metro-Columbus missions). In addition, we support 21 other mission alliances regularly and sponsor various short-term mission trips throughout the year. The last step is GO! We believe that every person, who is physically able, should consider attending a mission trip or be involved in a mission venture. To learn more about these opportunities, please email Pastor Paul... ppyle@dublinbaptist.com

Dublin Baptist Missions - Facebook

Japanese Chapel

This is one of only a dozen or so Japanese Christian congregations this side of the Mississippi River and they are affiliated with Dublin Baptist. The Dublin Baptist Japanese Chapel is led by Pastor Masashi Sugita, who is also its founding pastor of 33 years. This close-knit community is primarily made up of people that Pastor Masashi has reached for the gospel, who have come to the United States on a temporary work permit, and reside in northwest Columbus. Through the ministry of the Japanese Chapel, a number of its members get connected to Christ and return to Japan as ambassadors for the Lord. As a result, the Lord has built a network of "house" churches in Japan that are the offspring of the work of Pastor Masashi and the Japanese Chapel. During COVID, the Japanese Chapel meets in person on Sundays’ at 11:00 AM in the ARC Building – across the street from the Main campus. Pastor Masashi also ZOOMs several Bible studies throughout the week. To learn more about the Japanese Chapel, please email: msugita@japanchapel.com

The Dublin Baptist Chinese Church is our newest language congregation, and their reach to the Dublin community this year alone has been incredible.

Pastor Joshua was born and raised in China, came to faith in Christ while studying here in the US, sensed his call to the ministry, and is a recent graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
