What We Believe
We whole heartily accept the Bible, Old and New Testaments as the divinely inspired Word of God without, error, which we use to guide us through life.
We Believe. . .
. . . in One God, existing eternally in three persons, identified as The Father, Son and Holy Spirit referred to as the Holy Trinity.
. . . Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God that came into the world to redeem men through the forgiveness of their sins.
. . . a person should be water baptized as the Bible commands, as an outward sign of the inward spiritual reality of receiving Jesus as Lord of their life.
. . . in the indwelling of, and baptism of, the Holy Spirit which is the power of Jesus in the believer's life.
. . . in the heart felt worship that exalts the Name of Jesus personally and corporately.
. . . the Christian life is one fully devoted to Christ and His cause to reach the world with the power of the Gospel.
. . . we are to be a visible picture (portrait) of Christ to our world.
. . . Jesus is coming back again and those who have died in Him, those believers who are alive will be caught up together to meet Him.
. . . that Jesus came that we might have abundant life in every aspect of life (spiritual, physical, emotional and financial).
. . . that prayer is one way we communicate with God and is essential in the life of every believer.
. . . that we are to demonstrate the love of God to this world.
. . . tithes and offerings should be freely given to your local church.
. . . in the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception to the time of death, all human life is precious in the sight of God.
. . . that marriage and family are institutions ordained by the Lord God Himself from the very beginning of human history and these are sacred institutions. Marriage is between one man and one woman. Any other definition of marriage is cotrary to the clear teachings of the Holy Bible and hence against the expressed will of God.
. . . that God created men and women as sexual beings. Sexuality is an integral and beautiful part of creation. The Bible clearly teaches that any sexual act outside of marriage whether in thought, word, or deed is sin.
. . . that unity regarding the foundational doctrines clearly taught in the Holy Bible is absolutely essential. At the same time we also affirm that we must accept one another in the love of Jesus recognizing that there are differences of styles. All the members of the Body do not look alike. Together, we are the Body of Christ, called to build the Kingdom in harmony and agape love.
Destiny Church exists to exalt God through loving worship, to edify Christians through biblical teacher, to evangelize non-Christians through faithful witness, and to exhibit godliness through a positive presence in our community.
