Is the Church of Destin the only independent Christian Church in the world? Well, it’s not, but there are many independent, charismatic, faith-based groups. With all the acronyms, “Christian Church” just doesn’t cut it anymore.

In Destin, we’ve got a small group that offers consolation to the grieving, and we’ve also got a small group that provides fellowship to people who are discharging prisoners from prison.
