Does the Christian bible say that God will never destroy the world and kill everyone again?
Or does it only say he won't kill everyone again by WATER

Right, by a flood. Genesis 9:11 "I promise every living creature that the earth and those living on it will never again be destroyed by a flood."

The latter is the case. The world may be consumed as by fire if that's necessary to spare the last righteous people in the end.

GOD has a wonderful purpose for humans. He created the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, to live in a beautiful garden. His purpose was for them to have children, to make the whole earth a paradise, and to take care of the animals.—Genesis 1:28; 2:8, 9, 15
Do you think that we will ever live in a paradise? Jehovah tells us: “I have purposed it, and I will also carry it out.” (Isaiah 46:9-11; 55:11) Yes, he will do what he has purposed, and nothing will stop him. Jehovah says that he created the earth for a reason. He “did not create it simply for nothing.” (Isaiah 45:18) He wants people to live all over the earth. What kind of people does God want to live here, and for how long? The Bible says: “The righteous [or, obedient] will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.”—Psalm 37:29; Revelation 21:3, 4.Source(s): Jw.org

When God "destroyed the world" it was really just the bad people on it and many of the creatures that lived on the surface of the ground. Afterwards God promised never to destroy all things as he'd done.
"...never again will I strike down every living thing as I have done. 22 From now on, the earth will never cease to have seed-sowing and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night.”
We still live on that "destroyed" planet. God promises never to destroy it again. The fire that's stored up is Jesus and his army of angels that will selectively destroy the wicked once again.
2 Thessalonians 1:7-8
But you who suffer tribulation will be given relief...at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with his powerful angels 8 in a flaming fire, as he brings vengeance on those who do not know God and those who do not obey the good news about our Lord Jesus
Again we'll see the righteous will be saved, the wicked destroyed, and they earth will remain.

God promised that he would never again destroy everything on the earth in a flood. As a sign of that promise, he made the first rainbow appear in the sky. (Genesis 9:11-17)

It says that God will never again flood the world and destroy mankind by water. On the other hand, He will destroy by fire it's all in 2 Peter 3: verses 10-12 where He talks about melting the elements with fervent heat and all the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up etc

It says God never killed anyone in the first place. He's going to save the world, not destroy it. Look at Jesus and only Jesus for your picture of what God is and what he's going to do.Source(s): Jesus follower

The Hebrew scriptures (Jewish scriptures and what Christians call 'the Old Testament') state God's promise that never again will He destroy the world by a flood. The rainbow is the sign of that covenant promise, and it's detailed in Genesis chapter 8. Start reading from verse 15 right through to chapter 9 verse17 for the whole of that covenant promise.
However, in the Christian Greek scriptures (the New Testament) there is prophetic description of a future time when fire is mentioned as destroying earth and the works in it, prior to God creating a new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness will dwell. That is detailed in 2 Peter 3:10 - 15. Whether that is to be literal fire or whether it is symbolic may be debated amongst Christians, but the point is that water is not mentioned in this future destruction. Fire is the element, and it could be spiritual 'cleansing' or it could be literal burning.
The point not to be missed is that whatever happens to this planet, there is the promise of a new earth in which righteousness will dwell. Nor will everyone be destroyed, just as not everyone was destroyed in the Flood. Noah and his family and many animals were spared through it, and so with what is to come. Not everyone will be destroyed when God brings this future judgment.

The Bible says that the earth will not be destroyed by a world wide flood again. Gen 9:11 However the way things are going, if YHVH GOD does not intervene we will probably kill ourselves off by war..
