If you have not yet been able to attend Destiny House on a Sunday morning, here is a preview of what you would experience at DH.  We are committed to helping people experience the life changing presence of God.  At Destiny House there are three things that are really important to us :: We want people to experience love, discover life, then make a difference with what Jesus has done in them!  We may know you may have some question so let us answer a few of them.


WHAT IS THE OVERALL ENVIRONMENT LIKE?
Our Sunday Morning services are specifically planned to be a place where all people can have a dynamic encounter in the presence of God.  Our worship is driven by passionate celebration and supported by a strong multi-media presence.  The preaching of God’s Word is challenging and relevant to bring us to the place of change.  We will be together a little more than 1 hour.

WHAT'S THE MUSIC LIKE?

We have a live band of talented musicians that do an amazing job leading our church in worship with exciting and relevant music. We don’t own a pipe organ. Our live band usually consists of guitar, drums, bass, and keys. No robes. No choir. No Shakespearean lyrics. We try to sing songs that are deep in meaning, but easy to understand so that worship can come from our hearts.

WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
At both the 10:00am and 11:30am services we offer incredible children services from birth to 5th grade during the Sunday morning worship expereinces.   The age-appropriate rooms and experienced teachers will help your children learn about God in a relevant way, as well as offer fun experiences that will help the teaching come alive in their hearts. 

Our greeters will be happy to help you find your way to the appropriate check in kiosk for your children.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
You can wear a suit or shorts. Whatever you're comfortable in. We are much more concerned about what’s going on inside of a person, than what they are wearing on the outside. If it helps you out, our pastors are usually in jeans. So just come as you are.



WILL I BE ASKED TO GIVE MONEY?

If it’s your first time, we actually want you to keep your wallet in your pocket. Just come and experience a service at Destiny House. If you like it and want to call it your church home, then we believe giving financially to God and His church is the right thing to do as part of the family.

SUNDAYS @ 9:00a + 11:00a                 
WEDNESDAYS @ 7:00p
 

Our Sunday worship experiences offer contemporary worship and relevant teaching. Nursery and Children's Ministry for kids through 5th grade is available at all of our services.  DH Thrive is the student ministry at Destiny House and meets on Wednesday nights at 7pm for a specialized service for 6th - 12th grades.

About the Bible

Comprised of 66 books authored over thousands of years by dozens of authors, the Bible tells one seamless story: a passionate God on a relentless pursuit to redeem His creation. The Bible is the authoritative and inspired Word of God and is trustworthy and reliable for telling us what to believe and how to live.

About God

We believe in one God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is infinite, which does not always make sense to our finite understanding. He is not limited by time or space. He is creator, eternal, all-knowing, ever-present, and all-powerful. His character is multi-dimensional but no facet of His character diminishes another. In other words, His grace and wrath, mercy and justice, love and jealousy all work together for good.

About Jesus

Jesus is the eternal Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, worked miracles and gave us an example to follow. Fully God and fully man, He died on a cross to pay the penalty for sin that separated us from God and rose from the dead to reconcile us to our Creator and to free us to have a new life in Him. Now, He sits at the right hand of the Father to intercede for us.

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is given to every follower of Christ to guide, comfort, convict, and adopt us into the family of God. He helps us grow into Christ-likeness by producing the fruit of the Spirit in our lives, and He gives us spiritual gifts to empower us to meet the needs of God’s people and a hurting world.

About Salvation

We were created in the image of God to have community with Him and represent Him on earth. However, through a willful act of disobedience, we were separated from Him. The Father sent Jesus to redeem us through an act of atonement which culminated with Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. This gave us the opportunity to trade our sin for His righteousness through faith. Jesus’ sacrifice is the only means for our salvation and reconciliation with the Father.

About the Church

The Church is the Body of Christ and Jesus is the head of the Body. The Church is not a building or an event but the community of individuals who have put their trust in Jesus Christ. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God, make disciples, make Jesus known to a lost world, and meet the needs of those in our communities and around the world. We celebrate baptism as a first step of obedience for new followers of Christ, in which they identify with Christ’s death and resurrection and make a public declaration of their faith. We also celebrate communion as an ongoing remembrance of the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross.

About Following Christ

When we put our faith in Jesus Christ, it ignites a spiritual chain reaction and produces evidence of our salvation. We are forgiven of sin, declared right before God, and given eternal life with Him. The Holy Spirit is given to assure us of our salvation, adopt us into God’s family, and to live in us and empower us for a life of following Jesus. This results in the fruits of the Spirit -- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

About the Future

In the end of all things, Jesus will reign eternally. He will judge His creation according to the character that has been revealed to us through His word with justice and mercy. Those who have found salvation through Jesus Christ will enjoy His presence forever; those who have not will be separated from God for eternity.
