About Journey Fellowship
WHAT WE BELIEVE…..
God is the Creator of all things. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We want to know God, worship Him, and passionately follow Him.
…..about Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He lived a sinless, human life and, by dying on the cross, offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people. To demonstrate His power over sin and death, Jesus arose from the dead after three days. He ascended into Heaven and is now our High Priest and Advocate. He will return to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus Christ alone is our hope. We strive to follow the call of Jesus above all demands of this world that compete for our time, energy, and attention.
…..about the Holy Spirit
All believers receive the Holy Spirit when they receive Jesus Christ as Lord of their lives and salvation. We believe the Holy Spirit dwells in us, as believers, and guides, instructs, and empowers us for godly living and service.
…..about the Bible
The Bible is God’s word to us. The Holy Spirit guided human authors to write the Bible. Because it is inspired by God, the Bible is without error, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. We want to grow our relationship with Him by learning His word – it guides what we believe and do.
Salvation is God’s free gift to us should we accept it. When we repent of our sin, confess Jesus Christ our Lord, and turn from our self-ruled life, we are saved.
…..about the Lord’s Supper and Water Baptism
Communion and baptism are ordinances to be observed and obeyed in the present age, but are not the means of salvation. We are to observe these until the return of Jesus Christ.
…..about the Church
The Church exists to exalt and glorify God. The Church is a body of individuals, called together by God to be one in ministry and mission. The church exists as a world-wide fellowship of the family of God, as well as in specific communities of believers in Jesus Christ. We recognize the vital role each person plays in expanding God’s kingdom, both in our community and to the ends of the earth.
Investing in God’s kingdom is a privilege and a joy. Giving is an act of worship that honors God and acknowledges that all we have belongs to Him. We want to be generous to others and give as freely as we have received.
Heaven and Hell are real places of eternity. We will either be eternally separated from God by sin or be eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation.
We want to love God through obedience, sacrifice, and worship. When we hear Him, we will try to listen and obey. We will give ourselves fully to Him, live for Him, and sacrifice for Him. We will express our love for Him in fellowship through singing heart-felt songs of worship to convey our love for Him.
We love others in ways that reflect God’s love for us. It’s easier to love God than other human beings. People are not perfect; God is. Jesus said that loving others is as important as loving God…and not just those we want to love.
WE WANT TO BE KNOWN AS PEOPLE WHO LOVE GOD AND LOVE OTHERS…24/7…IN OUR DAY TO DAY LIVES. WE DESIRE TO BE AN AUTHENTIC COMMUNITY OF BELIEVERS WHO LIVE THE MESSAGE OF JESUS AND THE BIBLE IN A WAY THAT OTHERS WOULD SEE AND EXPERIENCE THE LOVE OF JESUS!
