Who we are

Welcome to New Destiny Assembly of God in Monroe

What We Believe

16 Fundamental Truths

1. THE SCRIPTURES INSPIRED

The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.

2. THE ONE TRUE GOD

The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I AM," the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3. THE DEITY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare: His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary work on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His exaltation to the right hand of God.

4. THE FALL OF MAN

Man was created good and upright; for God said, "Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness." However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.

5. THE SALVATION OF MAN

Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Conditions to Salvation

Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life.

The Evidence of Salvation

The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit.

The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness.

6. THE ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH

BAPTISM IN WATER

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.

HOLY COMMUNION

The Lord's Supper, consisting of the elements --bread and the fruit of the vine-- is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4 [KJV/NIV]), a memorial of his suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26 [KJV/NIV]), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26 [KJV/NIV]), and is enjoined on all believers "till He come!"

7. THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.

This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth.

With the baptism in the Holy Spirit come such experiences as:

an overflowing fullness of the Spirit,

a deepened reverence for God, Hebrews

an intensified consecration to God and dedication to His work, and a more active love for Christ, for His Word and for the lost.

8. THE INITIAL PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance.

The speaking in tongues in this instance is the same in essence as the gift of tongues, but is different in purpose and use.

9. SANCTIFICATION

Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God.

The Scriptures teach a life of "holiness without which no man shall see the Lord."

By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command: "Be ye holy, for I am holy."

Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by the faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit.

10. THE CHURCH AND ITS MISSION

The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the General Assembly and Church of the Firstborn, which are written in heaven.

Since God’s purpose concerning man is to seek and to save that which is lost, to be worshipped by man, to build a body of believers in the image of His Son, and to demonstrate His love and compassion for all the world, the priority reason for being of the Assemblies of God as part of the Church is:

To be an agency of God for evangelizing the world.

To be a corporate body in which man may worship God.

To be a channel of God’s purpose to build a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son.

To be a people who demonstrate God’s love and compassion for all the world.

The Assemblies of God exists expressly to give continuing emphasis to this reason for being in the New Testament apostolic pattern by teaching and encouraging believers to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. This experience:

Enables them to evangelize in the power of the Spirit with accompanying supernatural signs.

Adds a necessary dimension to worshipful relationship with God.

Enables them to respond to the full working of the Holy Spirit in expression of fruit and gifts and ministries as in New Testament times for the edifying of the body of Christ and care for the poor and needy of the world.

11. THE MINISTRY

A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for the fourfold purpose of leading the Church in:

Evangelization of the world.

Worship of God.

Building a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son.

Meeting human need with ministries of love and compassion.

12. DIVINE HEALING

Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.

13. THE BLESSED HOPE

The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the church.

14. THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST

The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years.

This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel, and the establishment of universal peace.

15. THE FINAL JUDGMENT

There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to the everlasting punishment in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.

16. THE NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH

"We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness."

History of New Destiny Assembly of God Monroe

In June 1950 a small body of believers formed Morningside Assembly of God church on South McGuire in Monroe, Louisiana. They were pastored by Sister Uber Arrington and later by Brother Bob Kerr. The church was incorporated in 1959 as College Town Assembly of God church and Brother E.J. Graves, Sr. became pastor.

In the late 1950s the property on South McGuire was bought by the State of Louisiana to be used in building Highway 165. The congregation agreed to purchase property located at 3918 Harrison Street, owned by Trinity Lutheran church. The quaint little clapboard chapel was used for a few years as Sunday School rooms even after the sanctuary on Harrison was completed in 1961. During the following years several pastors ministered to the congregation, among them were Brother F.C. Chamberlain, Brother John Parker (1968-1972), and Brother Charles Reed (1973-1983).

In May 1983 Brother Dan McLure became the pastor of College Town Assembly of God. Under his faithful guidance, and with the help of the church family, and the blessing of the Lord, many things were accomplished under his ministry.

In January 2005 Brother Jim Ragsdale took over as pastor and served until December 2012.

The church membership voted in October 2007 to pursue relocation to the north side of Monroe. The church on Harrison Street was put up for sale and a contract was achieved within three days. The sale of the property was closed in December 2007.

With the change of location the congregation voted to change the church name to New Destiny Assembly of God, and began meeting at Christway Church on Highway 165 North the first Sunday of January 2008. In that same month, land on Finks Hideaway Road was purchased and plans for a new church to be built on that site were underway.

The church met at Christway at 2 o’clock on Sunday afternoons for fourteen months, until moving into the Covenant Church building on Sterlington Road in mid-March of 2008, when thankfully we were able to go back to “regular” service times.

Construction on the present facility was started the first week of June 2009 and we had our first service in the new church on October 4th, 2009.

In December 2012 Brother Mikey Cheshier became pastor of New Destiny AG and served until September 2017. Cheshier established a fitness ministry, Trinity Fitness, that is still in operation at New Destiny.

A playground was donated and installed on the property in March 2018.

On May 6, 2018 we welcomed Mike and Cathy Howell as our new Pastor.

We thank God for what He has done with our congregation and it is with great anticipation that we look ahead to the future and to what we know that our God is going to do with and through us.   Edit
