Destiny Church has always been about “making and equipping disciples”, and looking back on how we came to be, we are very grateful for God’s guidance and provision through the years!
Formerly known as “New Life Christian Fellowship”, our church began as an idea. In 1997, First Assembly of God in Green Bay saw the need for a church in our area, and decided to do something about it. Through forming relationships with people in the community, our church began by meeting in a living room. Soon enough, the living room became too small and another location was needed.
On April 12th, 1998, New Life Christian Fellowship began meeting at Heritage Elementary School in De Pere. Throughout the next 6 years, growth continued to happen. Through creating relationships and practicing discipleship, our congregation grew to need our own established building.
In 2002, we purchased our first building in a downtown De Pere storefront, and after necessary renovations, we were able to finally have our own place of ministry and worship. New Life Christian Fellowship began to flourish and created a place for our community to seek God and serve others together.
As growth continued to happen, it became apparent that a larger building was needed. In January of 2012, our congregation moved to our current location. Formerly a bar and auction house, New Life Christian Fellowship transformed our current building into a house of worship.
With this change in location to our new home, Destiny Church became our new name! Today, we continue to grow in faith and generosity. We are still committed to making an equipping disciples as we serve God together. No matter our location, our foundation is, and always will be, Jesus Christ!
Meet The Team
Our mission simply mirrors the words of Jesus in Matthew 28:19: We exist to develop disciples for the growth and glory of God’s Kingdom.
Our vision is based from Ephesians 4:12: Our sole purpose for existing is to reach and equip our community to become disciples.
– We strive to daily live out the Great Commandment by loving God and the people He loves. (Matt. 22:37-39, Mark 16:15-16)
– We grow stronger in our faith when we grow together.
– Each of us is a “10” in something. We receive “joy” when we discover, develop, and deploy our God-given giftings. We believe that Jesus modeled for us how ministry and life are to be lived out towards one another. (John 13:14-17)
16 Fundamental Truths:
The scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.
There is only one true God–revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s son, Jesus was both human and divine. The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God.
Though originally good, man willingly fell to sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
Every person can have restored fellowship with God through ‘salvation’ (accepting Christ’s offer of forgiveness for sin).
Water baptism by immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation, and Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.
The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.
The Church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe ‘the Church’ is the body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son, Jesus Christ.
A divinely called and scripturally ordained leadership ministry serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, and to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church.
Divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ’s atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins.)
