A mission statement communicates the core purpose of any organization. At Journey Church, our mission statement is what drives everything that we do and will continue to be our focus.
Our mission is that we were called to go into all the nations, to minister to the lost and hurting, to baptize them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (Matt. 28:19)
A vision statement is simply a road map of our organizations long term goals.
Our vision is for as many to hear and experience the
love of Christ while raising up followers to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

The world and society is ever-changing. Beliefs are an important foundation, a bedrock, so that organizations never forget who they are. Our beliefs will be important to someone who is wanting to be a part of our church. As such, we think they should be brief, concise, and easy to understand.
