Journey Church exists to build a community of people that does life around the presence of God.
Our Mission is to see our cities transformed by the power of the Gospel for the glory of God in our generation.
We are a Presence Driven Church
We are not built around any person or ministry. We are built around one thing, the presence of God. Through worship, prayer, and God’s Word, we lead people from corporate encounters with God to daily personal encounters with God.
We Put People First
People matter to God, so they matter to us. We prioritize relationship over ministry. We are more intentional about building people than we are programs.
We are a Diverse Church
We are a church of various cultures, backgrounds, and ages. We are all one body, called to be in unity with God and His mission.
Seek His Presence. Build His People.
TAKE GOD ENCOUNTERS AND GIVE THEM AWAY
We value the urgent responsibility and privilege given to us by God — to proclaim the Gospel to all people, tribes, and nations. We evangelize by sharing the knowledge and understanding of God that we receive in our daily encounters with Him.
In every situation, whether good or bad, we pray before we act. Prayer is our first response, not our last resort.
We believe the greatest leadership is service to others. Every leader is a servant first. From the parking lot to the pulpit, everyone serves. Every role is different, but they are all important.
We are real, not religious people. We don’t hide behind a mask or image. We all fall short at times, and we aren’t afraid to admit our shortcomings to one another and build one another up.
GIVE IT AWAY TO KEEP IT
We will be generous with pure motives, knowing God blesses the pure in heart. We give our time, treasure, and talents from a heart of compassion.
TESTIFY GOD’S GOODNESS
If you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong! We make time to celebrate wins by testifying God’s goodness in our lives.
MAKE IT BETTER
We represent the Lord by doing the best we can with what we have. Everything has room for improvement, and we will have an attitude of whatever it takes to make it better than yesterday.
TALK IT OUT
We build the trust, character, and relationships of tomorrow by engaging in the tough conversations today.
We remain healthy by prioritizing personal encounters with God, pursuing purity, putting family first, and protecting our Sabbath so we can lead others in health.
We see people the way God sees people. We call out destiny in others by speaking life and not death.
We engage the Lord through daily personal encounters by welcoming the Holy Spirit, asking the Lord to speak to us, digging into God’s Word, praying the Lord’s Prayer, and listening for His response.
We honor the Sabbath and keep it holy by stewarding our time according to God’s teachings. We balance productivity with a commitment to take time away and recover in order to not risk our health, well-being, and effectiveness for the Kingdom.
We protect the unity of our church by acting in love toward other members, refusing to gossip, and submitting to leadership. We exercise forgiveness at all costs by asking for God’s forgiveness, forgiving ourselves and forgiving others. We believe there is no spiritual growth without forgiveness.
We recognize the difference between good ideas and God ideas. As we seek his wisdom, we will respond like Moses, “If Your presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here.” We will be leaders who only go where He is leading and operate in His giftings to get there.
We honor what God has given us by tithing faithfully, using our resources effectively, stewarding His presence with humility, and using our time productively.
