In Service Baptism Registration
April 1st, 2018
Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and the next step after salvation. It demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ to the world.
Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 2: 8-9; Matthew 28:19-20
Baptism is a transformational experience and one that we look forward to celebrating with you!
Church On Purpose
April 21st, 2018
LIVING ON PURPOSE
YOU WERE FORMED FOR GOD’S FAMILY A Place For You To Belong (CLASS 101 - MEMBERSHIP) Because God is love, he treasures relationships. At Destiny Metropolitan Worship Church, we want to welcome you into our church family and get to know you better. Class 101 is our basic introduction to Destiny and is designed to explain what we believe and what we’re all about. Whether you’re looking to take your first step in a relationship with Jesus Christ, get baptized, or get plugged into a life circle group, our team is here to offer you guidance and support. “God’s unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. And this gave him great pleasure” (Ephesians 1:5 NLT).
YOU WERE CREATED TO BECOME LIKE CHRIST Spiritual Maturity (CLASS 201 - MATURITY) Spiritual growth is not so much about "doing" as it is about "becoming" – becoming more like Christ. It's a life-long adventure that takes patience, commitment, and intentional focus. It's not what we do along the way that is most important. What really matters is who we are becoming in the process. Ultimately, the Christian life is about building an intimate relationship with Jesus as the Holy Spirit changes us from the inside out, and loving others the way Jesus loves us. Our Spiritual Growth Team is excited to partner with you by providing a "navigation system" for your journey with Christ. We invite you to explore the various opportunities we offer to help you take your next steps of spiritual growth. “As the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him and reflect his glory even more” (2 Corinthians 3:18b NLT).
YOU WERE SHAPED FOR SERVING Serving Others in Jesus's Name (CLASS 301 & 302 - MINISTRY) When we become a Christian, God gives us salvation and the hope of eternity in heaven. He also gives us purpose and significance in our lives. He has given each of us the opportunity to serve others and make a real difference in our community. When you serve others in Jesus' name, you’re ministering. God didn't design ministry for just a few people. At Destiny, we believe that every member of our church is a minister. The ministry team has designed several tools to help guide you in discovering how your spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality, and experiences (SHAPE) in life can be used by God to mold you for service. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).
YOU WERE MADE FOR A MISSION Sharing The Love of God (CLASS 401 - MISSION) You were made for a mission. God is at work in the world, and he wants you to join him. God wants you to share His love where you are. As a student, mother, teacher, salesman, manager, or whatever you do, God wants you to reach out to the people in your life. That might mean inviting a friend to church or showing love to those in need around you. God invites you to participate in the greatest, largest, most diverse, and most significant cause in history – his kingdom. The opportunities for normal, everyday Christians to become involved in short-term international missions are now limitless. Every corner of the world is available to you. You were saved to serve and made to go out and spread the Good News. Our Missions Team and Community Team are here to help you discover great ways that you can share your faith both locally and globally. “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1 Peter 3:15)
EXPERIENCING LIFE TOGETHER DESTINY LIFE CIRCLE GROUPS Life is meant to be shared. God intends for us to experience life together. The Bible calls this fellowship. Real fellowship is much more than just showing up at services. It is experiencing life together. It includes unselfish loving, honest sharing, practical serving, sacrificial giving, sympathetic comforting, and more “one another” experiences. When it comes to fellowship, size matters – smaller is better. That’s why at Destiny, we encourage you to get into a life circle group. We offer various affinity life circle groups. No matter where you are in life, there’s something for everybody! “For where two or three have gathered together in my name, I am there in their midst” (Matthew 18:20 NIV).
