Our overall purpose is to bring honor and glory to Jesus Christ by obeying his command to make disciples of all nations. Specifically, our vision is to make Dry Creek Bible Church an equipping center which helps individuals become Christ—like in their lives and competent in Christian service so that together we might reach for Christ the non-believers in the Dry Creek community, in our Gallatin Valley neighborhoods, in our state and nation, and in the world. —Mission statement of Dry Creek Bible Church, Belgrade, Montana
Ephesians 4:15 (NIV) Speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.
