OUR CORE VALUES
OUR CORE VALUES
The mission of The Journey Church is to develop disciples who love God, grow together and serve people, in order to fulfill the command of Jesus (the great commission). We like to say it this way, "We Love God, grow together and serve people, everywhere we go!"
We like to say it this way, "We LEAD in everything we do."
We do not go to the church; we ARE the church. Our building is merely a tool to reach people. Buildings cannot contain us and the enemy cannot stop us. We are committed to influencing everyone around us. We flourish in our homes, families, careers, finances, relationships, communities and beyond.
We are the church whose authentic worship touches the heart of Jesus and changes the lives of people. We seek His face and point others to His greatness.
We are the church who’s committed to raising, training, empowering and releasing a leading generation. We welcome everyone, value everyone and are transformed by the power of Jesus. Every one of us is consumed with this goal.
We are the church who’s completely dependent on the person of the Holy Spirit. We are praying, uniting, believing and working together to magnify Jesus for the world to see.
We are the church with a message that reaches both those who love the church and those who have been disillusioned with the church. Our message is so clear that people are transformed within and compelled to go and make disciples in all the world.
We are the church who develops and fosters genuine, authentic, lifelong relationships through true community—community where people are able to connect when they are ready.
We are the church so Kingdom-minded we will count whatever the cost and pay whatever the price to see revival sweep this land.
We are the church who is multiplying instead of adding. We are committed to being One Church in multiple locations.
We are the church whose head is Jesus, whose power is the Holy Spirit and whose mission is to disciple people who disciple people.
YES, WE ARE THE CHURCH WHO LOVES GOD, GROWS TOGETHER AND SERVES PEOPLE. WE ARE THE JOURNEY CHURCH.
