Our Mission & Vision

Destiny Life Center Church has a mission to embrace, equip and empower  everyday people to live extraordinary lives through Kingdom principles and relationships.
 
 

We are a church of love…

Love is the greatest of the Christian virtues. ( 1 Corinthians 13:13) Love is declared to be the chief test of Christ like discipleship.  “A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another; as I have loved you,  that you also love one another.  By this (love) all men shall know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another.”  (John 13:31,35)
 

Consistent And committed…

Commitment: Pledge, promise or duty regarded as solemn responsibility.  Be committed for the cause of Christ.  “ not giving up meeting together (as believers), as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.  (Hebrews 10:25) We encourage attendance at Sunday service, mid-week service and availing oneself to prayer and teaching ministries of the church.

that Evangelizes…

The mission of the church is to evangelize the world.  “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  (Matthew 28: 19-20)  As Believer, we are commissioned by Jesus to be responsible for the souls of those who don’t know Him as Savior.

rooted in Family…

We are mutually dependent on one another with love and respect. ” So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”  (Romans 12:5)  …no divisions… perfectly joined.. same mind… called into the fellowship. 

in a Spirit of Excellence...

Excellence: Superior quality; outstanding ability or worth.  “Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him…”(Daniel 6:3)

Tithing…

Tithing is God’s way to open the windows of Heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there is not room enough to receive it (Malachi 3: 8-10.  The tithe is 10% of your income.  We give b/c we love.  We give b/c we’re obedient. We give b/c there is a need.

Obedience…

Jesus was obedient.  (Luke 2: 51)  We must obey those in authority. “Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.”  (Hebrews 13:17)  Servants, obey in all things… fearing God.”

full of Character…

Your personality is what you show people but your character is who you really are.  We strive to live the life we talk about at Church, and away from church.  “Let your light so shine that men will see your good works…” (Matthew 5:16)

and Spirit Filled…

A Spirit-filled church is a church that is led, guided and directed by the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is the Administrator of the Church. He is in control. (1 Corinthians 12:4-7)  A Spirit-filled Church will be a church full of power.  His power is felt and seen at DLC.
We are a Church that Worships and Praises…
We must give God true worship.  He is a Spirit; and they tat worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth.  Our Father seeks such worship to Him. ( John 4:23,24)  “May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. (Psalms 67:4) Continuous  and “crazy praise from a clean heart is always welcomed.

We are a Preaching and Teaching Church…

Preaching is Proclaiming
  • Preach the Word. (2 Timothy 4:2)
  • Preach unto them Jesus. (Acts 17:18)
  • Preach the Word of God.  (Acts 13:15)
 Teaching is Explaining
  • Go you therefore and teach.  (Mathew 28:10)
  • Teach them to observe all things.
  • Jesus taught them.  (John 7:14)

that Forgives…

God wants us to forgive each other as He has forgiven us.  (Matthew 6:12, 14, 15)  “When you stand praying, forgive.”  (Mark11:25)

Prays and Fast…

Prayer is apart of our culture.  We have been conducting a 6 a.m prayer line for over 15 years.  We have seen many answers to prayer and we believe and expect miracles.  Through prayer and fasting we are able to flow in the anointing of God.  (Mark 9:29)  Praying always with prayer and supplication in the Spirit.  (Ephesians 6:18)

full of Faith…

Faith is confidence, assurance and reliance on God, trusting God for who He is.  He is all we need Him to be.  The Great I AM.  Without faith is is impossible to please God.  When we come to Him, we must believe that He is.  (Hebrews 11:16)  One of our favorite motto is: “If God don’t give it to us, we would have it!” 

and on time…

We strive to start on time and be on time.  God expects His church to be orderly, disciplined, organized, strategic in planning, timely and seasonal.  “Let everything be done decently and in order.”  (1 Corinthians 14:40)  

We have  Authority Over our Enemy…
