Beliefs & Core Values

What We Believe

Destiny Christian Church is a non-denominational, spirit-filled church. We believe that God has a perfect will for each and every one of our lives. We want to give you the tools you need to be successful Christians. We also believe worship is essential to experiencing God's presence. Every service at Destiny is an encounter with God, and provides practical advice and direction to live a life that portrays God's love.
  • God

    We believe in one God, revealed co-equally as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ

    We Believe that Jesus Christ was begotten, not created, the Son of God, truly God, truly Man, coequal with God. He was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, and offered himself a living sacrifice for the sins of the world by dying on the cross. He was resurrected to demonstrate His power over sin and death, ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.
  • The Holy Spirit

    We believe that the Holy Spirit dwells in the earth, and also in every Christ-follower. He helps to conform us to the example Jesus Christ set with guidance in doing what is right, understanding the truth, and the power to live rightly.
  • The Bible

    We believe the Bible is inspired by God and are His words to us, about us and for us. Our faith and teaching are based entirely and soley on the Bible.
  • Salvation

    We believe Jesus died on the cross and was raised from the dead so that we could be saved and have eternal life. We believe that salvation is confessing He is Lord, and asking Him into our hearts.
  • Water Baptism

    We believe being baptised in water is a testimony to our faith in Jesus, and is a symbol of the cleansing power of His blood.
  • Communion

    We believe in taking communion to remember what Jesus did for us on the cross and to praise and honor Him for that sacrifice.
  • Personal Relationship

    We believe every believer has a personal relationship with Jesus and should be growing that relationship by reading and obeying God's Word, and prayer and praise to our Lord.

Statement of Marriage

We believe that because God our Creator established marriage as a sacred institution between one man and one woman, the idea that marriage is a covenant only between one man and one woman has been the traditional definition of marriage for all of human history ("Traditional Definition of Marriage"). Because of the longstanding importance of the Traditional Definition of Marriage to humans and their relationships and communities, and, most importantly, the fact that God has ordained that marriage be between one man and one woman, as clearly conveyed in God's inerrant Scriptures, including for example in Matthew 19:4-6 where in speaking about marriage Jesus referred to the fact that "he which made them at the beginning made them male and female," the Church hereby creates this policy, which shall be known as the "Marriage Policy."

The Traditional Definition of Marriage is the only definition of marriage that will be recognized or accepted. No elder, employee or any person, corporation, organization, or entity under the direction or control of this Church shall commit any act or omission, or make any decision whatever, that would be inconsistent with, or that could be perceived by any person to be inconsistent with, full support of this Church's Marriage Policy and strict adherence to the Traditional Definition of Marriage rather than any alternative to the Traditional Definition of Marriage.

This Church's Marriage Policy specifically prohibits acts or omissions including but not limited to permitting any Church assets or property, whether real property, personal property, intangible property, or any property or asset of any kind that is subject to the direction or control of the Church, to be used in any manner that would be or could be perceived by any person to be inconsistent with this Church's Marriage Policy or the Traditional Definition of Marriage, including but not limited to permitting any church facilities to be used by any person, organization, corporation, or group that would or might use such facilities to convey, intentionally or by implication, what might be perceived as a favorable impression about any definition of marriage other than the Traditional Definition of Marriage.

We believe this Church's Marriage Policy is based upon God's will for human life as conveyed to us through the Holy Scriptures, upon which this Church has been founded and anchored, and this Marriage Policy shall not be subject to change through popular vote; referendum; prevailing opinion of members or the general public; influence of or interpretation by any government authority, agency, or official action; or legal developments on the local, state, or federal level.
