Genuine Community

"Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another." – Proverbs 27:17

At DBU, we believe God created us to live in a community.

Community is Scriptural

The Scriptures consistently stress this idea of community—the command to maintain fellowship with one another, strive for unity, and love one another. Genesis tells us God, at the dawn of creation, believed it was not good for man to live alone, so He created woman. Moreover, God maintained consistent communion with Adam and Eve as they walked in the Garden together (Genesis 2).

"My experience at DBU impacted my walk with Christ in that it was one of the first times in my life where I was surrounded by believers who were walking with the Lord daily. This transformed my relationship with Christ from something I knew in my mind to something I desired and pursued every day." - Natasha Vasquez, Alumna '23

Community is in the DNA of Humanity

Whether you are an introvert, an extrovert, an art lover, or a sports fanatic, we thrive when we have others who stand alongside us to support, encourage, and guide us. In this sense, the 17th-century English poet John Donne summed it up well when he stated, "No man is an island entire of itself."

This vision of Biblically mandated community as well as the practical benefits of fellowship drive DBU's focus on Genuine Community.
