Our Beliefs & Values
We are wholeheartedly committed to build a multicultural church that reaches all people. We will present the timeless message of the gospel in modern and relevant ways. The message is sacred and not to be altered, but our approach and method is always open to change. We are a Holy Spirit led and Bible-believing church and our theological beliefs are the same as hundreds of thousands of churches across the world.
Destiny Temple is a member of the Evangelical Alliance (EA), the UK's largest body of Evangelical churches. We subscribe to the EA's Basis of Faith and Evangelical Relationships Commitment.
God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He exists eternally in three personalities, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1, 26-27 / Genesis 3:22 / Psalm 90:2 / Matthew 28:19 / 1 Peter 1:2 / 2 Corinthians 13:14
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all humanity, by dying on the cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven's glory and will return to earth again some day to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22-23/ Isaiah 9:6/ John 1:1-5/ John 14:10-30 / Hebrews 4:14-15/ Romans 1:3-4
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make human beings aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with the power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live daily under his control.

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. People are the supreme object of God's creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God, called sin. This attitude separates us from God and causes many problems in life.
Genesis 1:27 / Psalm 8:3-6 / Isaiah 53:6 / Romans 3:23 / Isaiah 59:1-2
Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment anyone receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23 / Ephesians 2:8-9 / John 14:6 / Titus 3:5
Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot lose it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.
John 10:29 / 2 Timothy 1:12 / Hebrews 7:25 / Hebrews 10:10,14 / 1 Peter 1:3-5
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
John 3:16 / John 14:17 / Romans 6:23 / Romans 8:17-18 / Revelation 20:15 / 1 Corinthians 2:7-9
The Bible is God's word to us. Human authors under the supernatural guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit wrote it. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because God inspires it, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
