Finding and following Jesus …is the greatest Journey.
We seek to be “a church unchurched people love to attend.”
Our STRATEGIC VALUES
Come As You Are
Journey is a COME AS YOU ARE church – imperfect people aspiring to become all that God created us to be. We don’t care how you vote, what your tax bracket is, what your background is or how you think different, as long as you know there are NO PERFECT PEOPLE ALLOWED. We don’t care whether you’ve had a relationship with God your whole life or you’re not even sure He exists. Bring your questions and doubts, faith and fears, joys and hurts – leave nothing at the door.
At Journey we know we believe two things. First, that we are created to live life to the fullest. And second, that it is only possible when we live connected to others. It does require intentionality, but we want to help. At Journey we want to help you connect with people who live near you, who share similar interests or are in the same stage of life and/or people who you can serve alongside. So check out a volunteer team, go to a connection dinner, join a LIFEgroup or be a part of a DNAgroup.
When we say, COME AS YOU ARE, we also say, “but let’s not stay that way.” People need real, lasting transformation not from the outside in, but from the inside out. Transformation happens when we find ourselves on the journey to follow Jesus and connect with others. LIFEgroups and DNAgroups provide the encouraging relationships for authentic transformation along the way to becoming all that God created you to be.
When Journey Roseburg mobilizes those who follow Jesus to work together we are a powerful force of good. Part of God’s amazing plan—how He wired us to live connected goes beyond your own transformation but also God using you for the transformation of others. We continue to grow and be changed as we help others grow and change. There are plenty of churches in the Roseburg area where you can do nothing and give nothing if that’s what you want. At Journey we believe Jesus wants us to jump in and be part of what He’s doing—meeting the relational, physical, and spiritual needs in our world. All we ask is that you would give something and do something. We call that impacting eternity.
Our CORE VALUES
Following Jesus is – SERIOUS FUN
We are a HIGH ENERGY church, full of JOY & HUMOR, celebrating POSITIVE ATTITUDES while we may MOVE FAST & BREAK THINGS leaving room to MOVE SLOW & RESTORE.
We are a – MODERN EXPRESSION
We believe in order to inspire those investigating faith to find and follow Jesus we need to be AESTHETICALLY AWARE, TECHNOLOGICALLY RELEVANT, and VISUALLY DRIVEN.
We believe in – IMPERFECT EXCELLENCE
Journey is a RAW & REAL, CASUAL-INFORMAL atmosphere where we don’t obsess about everything looking perfect. We focus on SIMPLE LANGUAGE to explain spiritual truth and value DOING THINGS RIGHT as opposed to doing right things.
We live out – BELONG BEFORE YOU BELIEVE
We love connecting. Being a sinner and a doubter is not a disqualifier it’s a pre-requisite. All you need is the willingness to follow Jesus. If so, you belong. At base level you possess the power of invitation in YOUR CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE. We encourage you to use it. We believe at the very least that following Jesus makes your life better and makes you better at life. So feel free to engage people to “belong before they believe” with you. Invite others through SOCIAL MEDIA and FACE TO FACE encounters where unchurched people can begin to catch a glimpse of Jesus’ UNCONDITIONAL LOVE in our lives.
We embrace – INSPIRING TO ASPIRE
We aspire to see Holy Spirit bring consistent inspiration and challenge to seek after the HIGH ADVENTURE of growing as you follow Jesus. We trust Holy Spirit to challenge people to regularly take FAITH-FILLED RISKS and even become IRRATIONALLY GENEROUS with their faith, life and resources.
