Journey Church: exploreGod & journeyTogether
We help people who are curious about God learn about God. We lead followers of Jesus into growing deeper and deeper into the knowledge of Christ. Regardless of an individual's background, we help people search the depths and truths of God, Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit.
Growth does not often occur in isolation; growth primarily occurs together in relationships. We connect people to people and connect people to God.
Journey Church is a gathering of followers of Christ who work, pray, play, and sacrifice together to see:
We are all broken people. However, Jesus Christ picks up our broken pieces and puts us together into something new as we actually, actively follow Him. We are committed to helping broken people in our communities experience transformational life-change through the good news of Jesus.
We are powerless apart from the ministry of the Holy Spirit. As powerless and broken individuals, we must allow God to continually fill us and refuel us with more of His Holy Spirit. This is how God's character is developed and produced in our lives. We are committed to following God's supernatural leading and operating in His supernatural gifts through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
We extend the hand of Christ to our communities. We partner with ministries in our community that are already making a difference by sending out volunteers and support. We are committed to creatively engaging our community by surprising our friends, neighbors, and communities with God’s love.
We launch churches in nearby communities. The early church spread from community to community and from starting church after church in those local communities. We are committed to our dream of creating a network of northwestern Ohio churches that are collectively seeing a new generation drawn to the grace of Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Spirit.
We have a vision larger than ourselves. Jesus’ calls us to be His “witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” We want to make a huge impact in the lives of people all over this world! We are committed to give crazy amounts of cash to missions, pray with a passionate zeal for missionaries, and send teams of people to the nations.
