Our Church

Destiny Church in Inverness is a vibrant and contemporary church with a desire to see lives transformed by people encountering God.

We are a life-giving church who experience the presence and power of the Holy Spirit.

We have a genuine and practical love for people and a great passion for sharing the Gospel. 

From Inverness, our aim is to reach the Highlands, Islands and Moray: we see no community as too small nor remote. We want to see our nation changed.

E.   Evangelise our local communities, region and the nations beyond

A.   Accelerate Christian maturity

C.   Champion the cause of Christ and His Kingdom

RAISE A LIFE-GIVING CHURCH 

Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

(John 13: 34-35)

        Our church is built on the reality of God’s love, placing a high value on rich and loving relationships.  

        Our church is a house of love and honour: for God and for one another.

        Our heart is for every church member to enjoy meaningful connection.  

        Our Growth Groups have never been more important as we share life and faith and cheer each other on. 

        We are not a church with Growth Groups; we are a church of Growth Groups.  Small groups are a key component in church life as we read about in the Book of Acts.

 

EVANGELISE OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES, OUR REGION AND THE NATIONS BEYOND   

Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you.  As the Father has sent me, I am sending you”. (John 20:21)

        Jesus told us to go! 

        It is our passion to evangelise to see souls saved and people’s lives transformed as they become followers of Jesus.

        This can be done anywhere where we are.  God can use us in any conversation with others.   

        There is one eternal life-giving message – the Gospel.  Let’s go!

I am not ashamed of the Gospel because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.  (Romans 1:16)

  

ACCELERATE CHRISTIAN MATURITY

“If you hold to my teaching, you are really My disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”  (John 8:31-32)

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

(Matthew 28:19-20)

        The starting point of our faith is God’s amazing grace.  Discipleship is based on this.   

        Discipleship is key in our walk with God and there is a foundation in place for everyone to be discipled in church life.

        We want to know truth and live it, walking in the freedom that Jesus has won for us and grow in the revelation of God’s word. 

        Acceleration is also seen in our lives when we find faith and friendship as we serve together in Ministry teams.

 

CHAMPION THE CAUSE OF CHRIST AND HIS KINGDOM   

Your Kingdom come  (Matthew 6:10) 

        Every believer is an ambassador of the Kingdom of God. 

        We bring the influence of the Kingdom in all we are involved in; our neighbourhoods, workplaces and relationships are different because of this. 

  

HELPING HANDS INTO A HURTING WORLD 

Love your neighbour as yourself  (Matthew 22:39) 

        Our heart is to continually develop ministries that meet the needs of people in our communities throughout the region, meaning that people experience the love, care, compassion and goodness of God in a very real and practical way.
