About us

Welcome to the online home of Journey Church. I hope you will take a moment to look around the site.


We have worked hard to provide information and pictures that capture the culture of Journey Church. Journey is a place for those who have given up on church or simply those who do not like church. Each week, we seek to create environments that encourage people to live life to the fullest, or as we say it, Live Big


We believe God is only getting started with His plans in West Chester for Journey Church. It’s an exciting time to be a part of our church community. I hope you will consider checking us out some Sunday in the future. I’ll look forward to meeting you!

Journey essentials

The people of Journey Church participate in FIVE Essentials:


INVEST & INVITE

The people in our lives matter to God, they matter to us. Be a friend. Invite a friend.


FEED Yourself

Sunday shouldn’t be the only day we think about our spiritual lives. Spiritual growth is our personal responsibility.


Get CONNECTED

Our spiritual lives are designed to be shared with others. Faith is forged in the midst of community.


GIVE Generously

God invites us to live a life of abundant generosity in all areas of our lives.


SERVE Big

We are always looking for ways to serve those God puts in our path. When we serve others, we reflect Jesus.

What we believe

Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born into this world through a virgin birth, fully God and fully man. He died on the cross to pay for the sin of man. God raised Him from the dead and He appeared alive to His followers before ascending into Heaven. There He reigns over all creation and is preparing a reward for those who trust in Him for their salvation and who live according to His will. One day He will return in power and glory to lead the living and the dead to judgment. Matthew 1:24-25, John 1:1, John 14:2-3, Timothy 3:15, Acts 10:42


The Bible

The Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. It is our guide for living. We have no other manual. 

2 Timothy 3:16


The Church

There is only one church in God’s sight and it is made up of all those that have chosen Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We are non-denominational and believe in the unity of God’s Church. We are affiliated with the Church of God headquartered in Anderson, Indiana. Affiliation gives accountability without control. Each church is autonomous with the ability to determine its own direction, budget, teaching and staff. 

1 Corinthians 1:10-13


Holy Spirit

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity and every believer receives His presence. Through his power believers are enabled to live a godly life. 

Luke 11:13, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 1:13-14


Holiness of the Believer

God’s Spirit enables us to live above daily continual sin. At the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord we are kept by His grace and we are empowered to sustain a continuing relationship with Him. 

1 Corinthians 10:13, Hosea 6:6, 1 John 1:9


Spiritual Gifts

The Holy Spirit gives one or more spiritual gifts to each Christian. We believe every believer is a minister and is encouraged to find, in God’s timing, his or her place of service in the Body of Christ, the Church. 

1 Corinthians 12:4-7


We are committed to:

The Great Commandment ...love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind... 

Matthew 22:37


The Great Commission ...go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all of the commands I (Jesus) have given you. 

Matthew 28:19-20
