Who We Are

MDPC is built on three foundational pillars. First, we are a house of prayer, with every member prayed for every day through our Partner in Prayer program. Secondly, MDPC is a mission-minded church that devotes between 40-50% of their annual giving to their missionaries and mission agencies, partnering with over 135 organizations and individuals. Lastly, MDPC embraces the BLESS Challenge, a lifestyle of generosity that strives to bless those with whom we come in contact. BLESS is an acronym for Bless Everyone, Listen to God, Eat with Someone (fellowship with others), Study Jesus, and Serve Generously. It is our roadmap for living the Jesus life!

Our congregation is warm and friendly, our programming is creative and varied, and our three worship services offer a variety of worship styles and music. Check us out!

Our Services

What are services like?
At its best, worship touches every element of a person’s life. It enlightens the mind, warms the heart, heals the body, touches the soul, and animates the will. Because we believe that God speaks to each person individually, with a language that is unique to each, we offer several distinctive styles of worship. Our aim at MDPC is to create worship environments where people can experience a transforming encounter with the Living God that sends them out whole, healthy, and fully alive. The sermon message, generally delivered by our Senior Pastor, Dave Peterson, is the same at each (English-speaking) service, but each service possesses its own distinct style.

What is the community like?
We are a warm and friendly congregation who are walking through life together, sharing our struggles and triumphs, attempting to pattern our lives after Jesus, who we believe to be the source of all Hope.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Everyone is welcome at MDPC. If you are a life-long believer, a new Christian, a seeker, or merely interested in discovering what we're all about - come!
