About US

Our culture likes big, extravagant, spectacular.  Just take a look at summer blockbusters. Each sequel has to be bigger and more exciting. It’s easy to think that God shows up only in the big and bold. 

And at times God does.  The scriptures, though, are full of examples of God showing up in the smallest and most ordinary of ways – in things like a mustard seed, footprints in the sand on a beach, or the smiles of the old.

We're a small church with a vision of life rooted in faithfulness.  We’re embracing who we are by working on the basics like:  Real-world Bible teaching, genuine relationships, practical ministries, and clean, safe, fun childcare.

We’re taking a more personal approach to ministry.  We’re building a stronger church by valuing each community member (inside and outside the church), focusing on our own personal relationship with Christ and creating a faith community that pursues God’s desires for creation.

We believe God calls Journey of Faith Christian Church to continue Christ’s good work.  We’re investing more of our love, time, energy and resources in people Jesus cared most about — ‘the least of these.”

We want to jump off the treadmill of bigger, better, faster, stronger and create space for compassion, peace, justice and authenticity to emerge.

And, in the meantime, we look for God to work in the smaller things of life — even in a small church.

“Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much."  — Matthew 25:21

WHY ATTEND THIS CHURCH?

We know attending church doesn't make sense for a lot people today.  You might have even asked yourself — why bother? 

For us, there are two compelling reasons to attend church:  

o   Being the church (not just attending) is about living your life for Christ.  That’s deeply scriptural and holy and powerful.

o   Gathering together to journey in faith together and help others was Jesus’ idea.   We figure Jesus knows something we don't.

 

So, why attend this church?

o   This is a safe place for people to explore their faith. 

o   Nothing changes the world more powerfully than the love and hope of Christ shared with a world that so desperately needs it — we want the church to be a part of that.

o   We believe everything this church says or does should try to reflect God's love for everyone.

o   We’ve got a great team made up of people like you who long to make a difference.

"Join us any Sunday to worship and be fed by our living God!"  —Pastor Alex
