ABOUT US

ABOUT OUR CHURCH
 
Here at Destiny, we are a place of hope, acceptance, and freedom. No one is too different or too broken to join our family. Destiny has a wonderful mix of cultures & ethnicity. Located in South Gastonia, we have the perfect location to gather with people from all walks of life. Additionally, we are here as a safe place of deliverance, healing, and restoration for those who are overcoming addictions, abuse, and other harmful behaviors. Everyone has a story to tell, no matter how perfectly put-together they may seem. We are here to build up, support, and encourage each other as as a part of the Body of Christ.
 
 
OUR HISTORY:
 
In 2007 God sent our visionary, Pastor Tucker, to the Gastonia campus to lead us as Senior Pastor.  When he came, there were only 26 attendees. With Pastor Tucker’s faithful pursuit to obey God’s assignment on his life, we now have well over 500 members at our 2 church campuses.  
 
Over the last few years, we have began to see the manifestation and fulfillment of prophetic words that have been spoken in previous years over our church and our Pastor.  With the fruits of what God is doing in the lives of His people here, Destiny Church has become the housing of a great Revival. God has broken, and is breaking racial boundaries, and poverty mindsets in our community. Destiny Church is not made up of “religious” people. We are a people hungry for the presence of God. We are living the reality from God’s Word which says “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled!”

OUR VALUES

 

Family:

  Families represent life!  Here at Destiny Church, we strive to create a culture where families grow together in a spirit of unity, strength, and godliness.  Not only do seek to see families and relationships enriched, but we operate in an environment where our fellow church members are like family.  We believe in building Godly relationships among our church community.  We laugh together, cry together, grow together, and practically do “life” together.  We desire to represent the Kingdom of God in everything we do!

 

Worship:

  The Bible says in John 4:23 (ESV) that “…the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.”  At Destiny Church, we strive to not only create an atmosphere of worship during services, but rather a lifestyle of worship.  We believe in giving God praise with instruments and singing (Psalm 149:3), with dancing and shouting (Psalm 150), with giving and sowing (2 Cor. 9:6-7), but also with the way that we live our lives (Psalm 96:9).

 

Outreach/Missions:

  The vision that God has given Pastor Tucker for Destiny Church goes way beyond the four walls of a church building.  As Christ instructs us to “Go into ALL the world and preach the Gospel” (Mark 16:15), that is simply what we do!  From handing out blankets and food to the homeless, to evangelizing the community with local ministry events, to sharing the Gospel with our co-workers, friends, and family members, Destiny Church is a “church on the move” for the Kingdom of God!

 

Excellence:

  We believe in raising up people to give God their very best in everything they do by inspiring them to reach their greatest potential!  A scripture that our leadership often quotes as a reminder as to why we do what we do is Colossians 3:23.  It states that “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,”.  We aspire to bring God glory and honor in everything we do here at Destiny Church.
