What it's like to live in the cities our church serves in Northwest Florida: 

Our region is affectionately called the "Emerald Coast," named after our signature white sand, turquoise waters, as well as other natural occurrences, like dune lakes and the nearby barrier islands. It's a favorite destination for over 4.5 million visitors every year! From surf and sun, to shopping, dining and great schools, our region is an area growing in population and influence. If you've ever been here on vacation once, you've wanted to come back. If you live here, you love it here.

About Destiny Worship Center

We are a healthy, multi-campus church serving the emerald coast of Florida. There's quite a lot to say about our church but the best way to let you know about us is to tell you about our 4 core values:

Bridging Denominations

Part of our ministry philosophy is to build on our heritage, not abandon it. At Destiny Worship Center, we embrace the term “interdenominational.” People from all denominations can feel welcome at our church. “We desire for every person to understand that they belong, regardless of the church background.” As we encounter God, we believe in Him and behave according to His word. We do not believe God is looking for reasons to exclude people. His nature is to include people. The best common ground we all have is that we believe in Jesus, believe in what He did for us, and love Him with everything within us. This part of our vision is best demonstrated in our worship services.

Making Disciples

Jesus’ command was for us to “go and make disciples.” Our passion at Destiny is not only to make believers, but also to make disciples. We want to see people become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We live out this value in a variety of ways; through our Growth Track, Small Groups, weekend services and ministries.

Building Families

Building families remains one of the top priorities at Destiny Worship Center. We believe a strong church is measured by the strength of the families that form it. At Destiny Worship Center, we offer a number of ministries geared towards strengthening families and the relationships between families.

Transforming Communities

Transforming communities is another focus of our spiritual family. We transform our communities by exercising goodness, generosity, and love to those outside of the church through local and global missions. We also embody this value by planting churches. Whether we plant a campus in our local region or abroad in countries like Kenya and Brazil, our desire is to see communities transformed. We currently have locations in Destin, Freeport, Crestview, Panama City Beach, Fort Walton Beach, FL, Kenya and Nicaragua.
