Our Core Pillars will be the heartbeat and the essence of who we are as a church. DPC will strive to create a culture that displays the Core Pillars in everything we do, say, and believe!
We believe in “Family”- At Destiny Pointe Church we feel that God has called us to strategically reach, nurture, & disciple families. We have a global vision and a family focus. We will minister to every family and every individual family member.
We believe in the “Next Generation” – At Destiny Pointe Church we will sacrifice, pray, and do whatever we have to do to raise the next generation of believers. We are crazy about kids and teens and will strive to help them discover their true destiny’s in Christ.
We believe in “Reaching the Unsaved” – At Destiny Pointe Church our focus goes far beyond the walls of our church. Though we celebrate our church family and promote our fellowship within, our heart is always turned towards those who have never heard the good news of Jesus Christ. Whether it be those around the world or those around the block, our heart is to reach them with the Grace message of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the “Church” – At Destiny Pointe Church we believe that the church is the greatest force upon the face of the earth. We believe that the church is not buildings but believers. Therefore we will not forsake our gathering together and connecting with God and with one another. Instead of seeing church as something that only serves its people, church becomes people who serve God, one another, and a hurting world.
Why Destiny Pointe Church? Actually, why another church? Aren’t there churches on every corner already?
Based on research (I Am a Church Member, Thomas Rainer) from 2004 to 2010 showed that nine out of ten churches in America are declining or growing at a pace that is slower than that of their communities. Simply stated, churches are losing ground in their own backyards.
Another way of looking at it is generationally. About two-thirds of the Builder Generation, those born before 1946, are Christians. But only 15 percent of the Millennials are Christians. The Millennials are the largest generation in America’s history with almost eighty million members. They were born between 1980 and 2000. Predictions show that the next gen born after 2000 will have only 4 percent that will be Christian (true disciples of Christ).
Let me give some good news now! Nearly 80 percent of those giving their lives to Christ in America are doing so in new church plants or new multi-site campuses. This fans the flame in my heart and stirs my passion to plant a life giving church in Columbia, Missouri. We have great churches in our city now, but statistics have recently shown that Columbia has nearly 109,000 residents and of those only 10,000 are connected to a church. In our city nearly 100,000 people are “unchurched”.
We have much work to do! We realize that “going to church” doesn’t save us, Jesus saves us! However Jesus established the church, is married to the church, died for the church, is the Head of the church, and is coming again for His church! We desire to join the great churches in Columbia and reach our city with the Good News of Jesus Christ!
