The following are some excerpts from the course from some of the above headings...
Those who are planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
- Our God is a God who likes things secured, anchored and established as opposed to loose, unsecured and disconnected. God has chosen to use the word planted to describe the sort of connection He wants His people to have to Himself and each other.
- To build a large, great, Spirit-filled Church that would be both redemptive and creative in all its expressions, impacting Nelson, New Zealand and the World for Jesus Christ.
- Because we recognise that each person is unique in not only their needs but also their abilities, skills, motivations and personality, we have provided tools to maximize your Christian growth that embrace the whole person.
The Seven Covenant Commitments
- The Leaders of Destiny Church have undertaken to keep these Covenant Commitments to members in response to the Covenant Commitment that they make.
The Criteria for Membership
- Why do Churches have so many people on their membership rolls that give little or no evidence of Christian commitment or even conversion? Why do many Churches find it difficult to motivate members to give, serve, pray, and share their faith?
Why a Membership Covenant?
- In order to implement the principles of accountability and commitment to the local Church as defined in the New Testament and practised in the early Church, Destiny Church recognises the need for formal membership.
