We know that you may be new to church, new to our church, or it’s been a little while, so we’re sure that you’ll have some questions. Here are our most asked questions and their responses:

  • I’m interested in knowing more about God. I’m new to church or I haven’t been in church for a long time. What should I do?
    Continue to pray and seek God. The Bible says, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” One of the best ways to continue seeking God is to find a Jesus-centered, Bible-centered church that you enjoy attending. Make it a habit every week. Get around other people who are regularly seeking God. Find a small group where you can get to know other Christ followers and learn and fellowship and ask questions. Pray. Learn about why Jesus is so important and what his life, death, and resurrection mean for your life.
  • Do I need to dress up to attend your church?
    No. While we do have a wide range of dress in our services from jeans and a t-shirt to suits, we tend to recommend modesty and encourage you to be comfortable.
  • Why do you sing songs together (worship)?
    Because God created music, his people have always had a tradition of honoring him with song writing, singing, music, and instruments. The singing portion of our church service is an outward expression of a life lived to honor God (also called worship). Though the style has changed over the years, from traditional Jewish songs to Reformation hymns to the contemporary worship movement, the importance of worship has not changed. Worshipping God with song teaches us about Him, prepares our hearts for Him, and helps us to be close to Him.
  • How would you describe your worship service?
    Our worship is modern/contemporary and passionate.
  • Why do people raise their hands, clap, and passionately express themselves during the worship service?
    The Bible describes all of these as symbolic acts of worship. Hand raising is a symbol of praise, of pleading, and of surrender. Clapping and even shouting were for celebrating God’s goodness and victory.
  • Why does your church collect money each week?
    Giving financially is encouraged by the scriptures because it supports ministry of the church, expresses dependence on God, and express thanks for His provision.
  • What kind of church is Destination Church?
    Though we tend to think of ourselves primarily as followers of Jesus we understand that there are many people with various denominational backgrounds and questions. Destination Church is a part of a fellowship of churches called the Assemblies of God. We are evangelical and Pentecostal/charismatic (believe in the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit.)
  • Will my kids like coming to church? What does the church have to offer them on Sundays or even beyond?
    In a word, YES! (see programs). Our Sunday children’s program is one of the best. They have a great time singing songs, learning Bible stories, watching puppets, enjoying object lessons, and being with other kids. Our nursery, toddler, and K4-5 programs have a warm staff and the facilities were completely remodeled in 2012!
  • How can I schedule an appointment to speak with a pastor?
    You can schedule an appointment by calling the church at 904-724-7466.
