About Us

Who we are, and what we believe

 Jesus Christ is our primary message.

 

Welcome to Journey Church.  We are affiliated with Grace Communion International – a Christ centered fellowship with more than 900 congregations in almost 100 nations and territories.


We are a church that emphasizes the love of Jesus Christ as our primary message. Jesus is the centerpiece for everything we do.  Jesus reached out to others who were different than He was. He touched lepers, visited tax collectors, ate with social outcasts and spoke to people on the other side of the cultural wall. We want to do the same.  Our focus it to follow Christ and “make disciples.”

 

Journey Church is a place where people come together to experience the love of Jesus Christ and worship Him as a community of believers.  Whether you’re young, old, wealthy or poor,  we want you to join us as we worship God and learn from his word.  





Our Beliefs


Statement of Faith

 

We are exhorted to grow in the grace & knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, 2 Peter 3:18 – But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

 

We believe in one God, who exists in three Persons — the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is loving, holy and just.

 

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is inspired and accurate. It is our perfect guide in all matters of life.

 

We believe that sin has separated us all from God, and that only through Jesus Christ can we be reconciled to God.

 

We believe that Jesus Christ is both God and Man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took all our sins upon Himself, died and rose again. Today, He is seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Mediator.

 

We believe that salvation is the gift of God to man. This gift is effected by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and it produces works pleasing to God.

 

We believe that water baptism is an outward act that demonstrates a believer’s identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is our Comforter. He guides us in all areas of our lives. He also blesses us with spiritual gifts and empowers us to yield the fruit of the Spirit.

 

We believe that the Holy Communion is a celebration of Jesus’ death and our remembrance of Him.

 

We believe that God wants to transform, heal and prosper us, so that we can live blessed and victorious lives that will impact and help others.

 

We believe that we are called to preach the gospel to all nations.

 

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again just as He promised.




Our Doctrinal Summary


The Spirit of God leads the church into all truth. John 16:13 - But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.

 

There is one God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

God the Father made all things through the Son, sent the Son for our salvation, and gives us the Holy Spirit.

 

The Son of God, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, was born of the virgin Mary, fully God and fully human, and is the perfect revelation of the Father and the perfect representative of humanity. He suffered and died on the cross for all human sin, was raised bodily on the third day, and ascended to heaven. Standing in for all humanity before the Father, Jesus Christ provides the perfect human response to God. Since he died for all, all died in him, and all will be made alive in him.

 

The Holy Spirit brings sinners to repentance and faith, assures believers of their forgiveness and acceptance as God’s dearly loved children, and works in them to conform them to the image of Jesus Christ.

 

The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God that testifies to Jesus Christ. The Bible is fully authoritative in all matters of life.

 

Salvation comes only by God’s grace and not by works, and it is experienced through faith in Jesus Christ. Christians respond to the joy of salvation when they gather in regular fellowship and live godly lives in Jesus Christ.

 

We look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the age to come.

 

Our Mission

 

 

 

To follow Christ and make disciples.


Matthew 28:19-20 –  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

 

Our Values


Prayer

Prayer is the act of seeking God and building a relationship with Him.  We encourage believers to pray always and in the Spirit.


Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened  -  Matt 7:7-8 (NIV)




Worship

Worship is the expression of reverence, honor and glory to God Almighty.   We worship God in everything we do.


God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. -  John 4:24

 





God’s Word

The word of God enlightens, convicts, encourages, and instructs.  It is the source of God’s desire to see us “grow in grace and knowledge.  We are word focused in all our teachings.


For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. -  Hebrews 4:12



Fellowship

Fellowship is the outflow of communion with God through a bond of love, unity, friendship, and sense of community.  Our members actively participate in our fellowship activities.


And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another–and all the more as you see the Day approaching. -  Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)



Love

God is love.  Therefore, everything we do is from the perspective of our love for God and love for our neighbors.  We seek to love others with the love of Christ.   We obey the command of Jesus:


A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. - John 13:34-35 (NIV)
