JOURNEY CHURCH EXISTS TO HELP OUR NEIGHBORS DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF THE GOSPEL
Luke 24 gives the account of two men walking along the road to Emmaus. As they were walking along the road, on a journey to somewhere. Jesus drew near and walked alongside them (verses 13-16). Though their eyes did not recognize him yet, Jesus initiated conversation, asked questions, and listened to them (verses 17-24). Jesus then walked them through God's great story of redemption through scripture to the good news of the Gospel (verse 32).
As a church, we want to be a body of believers that meet people where they are on the road, walk with them along their journey, and share the good news of the Gospel, relying on the Holy Spirit to open their eyes and change their hearts.
JOURNEY CHURCH EXISTS TO HELP DISCIPLE OUR NEIGHBORS IN THE DEPTHS OF THE GOSPEL.
In Luke 24:36-48 Jesus again appeared to his disciples, ate with them, and then "opened their minds to understand the Scriptures." The disciples them committed themselves to worshiping together with great joy (verses 52-53).
As a church, we are committed to equipping and training the body to follow Jesus, know and understand His Word, and live it out. We are committed to gathering together for worship and the teaching of Scripture, as well as sharing our lives and journeys with one another outside of the physical church walls.
JOURNEY CHURCH EXISTS TO HELP OUR NEIGHBORS THEN DELIVER THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE GOSPEL TO OUR COMMUNITIES AND BEYOND.
Luke 24:33-35 records the disciples finding others and telling what happened to them along the road. Jesus tells them that they are witnesses of what God had done and commands them to take the message of the Gospel to their cities and to all nations (verses 47-49).
As a church, we strive to be a body of believers sent out to take others the message of Jesus' death and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins. With both words and our actions, we will declare what God has done in the story of redemption and in our very own lives, beginning with our communities, throughout our region, and across the globe.
