Find your purpose in God’s plan.

At Journey, we don’t just offer a great Sunday service that you can forget about during the rest of the week. We help you live the rewarding, fulfilling life that God has planned for you. We believe in living our day-to-day lives to show Jesus’ strength and goodness with every step.

Journey is about helping everyone find out how they fit into God’s plan. Sometimes life gets tough, but with a strong church community to nudge you toward Christ we know that anyone can find their way.

So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

Romans 12:5


We look for these five landmarks to guide our steps on life’s journey.

God designed us to live in community. We’re better together. It’s that simple.


Our time with Jesus helps us grow and empowers us to help others.


The closer we get to Jesus, the more generosity flows from us. 


Understanding our strengths and skills helps us serve Him the way He intended.


We live our lives to show Jesus’ invitation to “Come Unto Me” in every moment.

Transforming lives, churches, and communities through Jesus Christ.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
