About Us

Journey Church

Purpose
We exist to Love, Connect, and Serve as we Grow in relationship with God

Mission

Create an environment where people would love to come, explore, and experience God’s love, grow, connect and show, others.

 

Five Principles

Cultural Relevance

  • We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don’t know Christ.
  • To reach people no one is reaching, we’ll have to do things no one is doing.
  • We are committed to creating authentic, non-threatening environments.
  • The local church is the place where all are accepted and belong irrespective of beliefs.

Service

  • We give up things we love for things we love even more.
  • It’s an honor to sacrifice for Christ and His church.
  • We will laugh hard, loud and often.
  • Nothing is more fun than serving God with people you love!

Quality

  • We always bring our best.
  • Excellence honors God and inspires people.

Responsibility

  • We will honor Christ and His church with integrity.
  • If we live with integrity, nothing else matters.
  • If we don’t live with integrity, nothing else matters.
  • We are spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers.
  • The church does not exist for us. We are the church and we exist for the world.

Freedom

  • We are faith-filled, big thinking, bet-the-farm risk takers.
  • We’ll never insult God with small thinking and safe living.
  • We will lead the way with irrational generosity.
  • We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive.

First Visit

Here’s what you can expect when you visit our church:

 

Journey Church exists for three reasons: To equip people to grow and mature in a relationship with God and each other, while meeting the needs of our community in practical, tangible ways. That’s it! It is that simple. You won’t find a myriad of programs or a crowded calendar of activities, you will simply find a group of people who are passionate about God, who are committed to one another and who desire to make a difference in the Hudson Valley.

 

Relevant, Practical Teaching – Preaching should never be boring! As Christ-followers, we have the most exciting message in the world to deliver. At the Journey, we desire to present the age-old truths of scripture in a culturally relevant, yet biblically-sound manner. Our messages always seek to draw us closer to God, equip us in life’s journey, and encourage us to demonstrate kindness and the heart of God with people in our lives.

 

Authentic People – Our services aren’t filled with perfect people who are “too spiritually minded for their own earthly good.” Rather, they are filled with real people, experiencing real problems, who have found strength, comfort and peace in God.

 

Friendly Environments РChurch is not about buildings or denominations Рit is about people. We love people and are excited to have the opportunity to meet our neighbors in the community. When you walk in the doors of the Journey, you will be greeted with a warm smile and genuine care. Throughout your visit you will encounter authentic people who truly  desire to bless and encourage you on your journey.

 

Passionate Worship – At the Journey, we believe that worship is about more than music…it is about experiencing God in an intimate way. As a result, we have designed our worship services in such a manner that people can express freely their need for Him. There is no “right way” to worship, and as such, we encourage people to simply express their love to God in a way that is comfortable and familiar to them.
