JRNY is a church that believes in Jesus and is dedicated to reaching people who feel far from Christ. Overwhelmed by the gift of Salvation we have found in Jesus, we have a heart for the 4.8 million people in the Greater Philadelphia region that have yet to experience this life-changing relationship only found in Jesus Christ.
We are not okay with being mediocre for a God that is excellent. We give our best because God gave His best through His Son Jesus! We only exist to succeed in accomplishing God’s Mission to win lost people.
God’s will never contradicts God’s word. In a world swayed by man’s opinions we will build our entire lives on God’s truth. Following Jesus is as simple as listening to God and doing what He says.
We believe that God is obsessed with people who feel far from Him. Because of that, our personal preferences will always take a backseat to our mission. We are more concerned with the people we’re trying to reach than the people we’re trying to keep!
We believe the church exists for the world! We are not a country club for Christians. Generous is not something we do, it’s who we are! We believe nothing asked of us is too hard or takes too much time, because we are called to the only thing that’s worth giving our lives to!
We are servants to our community and will be known for our kindness. Our lives will cause those around us to experience God long before they ever step foot in our church!
The Holy Spirit inspired human authors to write the books of the Bible. God Himself chose every word of Scripture. The Bible is God’s love letter to all of humanity and is the final authority in every issue it communicates. It is complete Truth, and we can trust it for all matters in this life and eternity.
Our disobedient nature has eternally separated us from our Creator. No matter how hard we try, we can never earn our way back into God’s Presence. Our only hope is to trust Jesus as God’s provision for our disobedience. When you make that decision, you step into the eternal and abundant life Jesus promises for all believers.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are coequal and are one God.
God made you to exist forever. Heaven is a perfect place, and since none of us are perfect, we are all headed for an eternity of separation from God. That’s why God sent Jesus: to pay the price for our sins so that we can spend eternity with Him. What you decide about Jesus Christ in this life will determine where you will spend eternity. If you reject Him, you’ll be eternally separated from God in Hell. If you accept Him, you’ll spend it eternally connected with Him in Heaven.
The Holy Spirit is a full and equal part of the Trinity. He works in the world to make all people understand their need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives inside every follower of Jesus from the moment they decide to follow Him. The Spirit is our power source for life, ministry and spiritual growth. To tap into that power, we must continually yield to the Holy Spirit.
The Bible tells us that the church is the body of Christ in the world today. The New Testament tells us the church is a local body of baptized believers. The head of the church is Jesus Christ. The biblical purposes of the church are worship, evangelism, fellowship, discipleship and ministry to others.
Jesus Christ is God’s Son and an equal of the Father. He has existed from before time began, yet lived on earth during the first century A.D. Throughout His earthly life, He was completely God and completely human at the same time. After living a perfect, sinless life, Jesus offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for every human being who has ever lived by dying on a Roman cross. After three days in the grave, He defeated sin and death by rising from the grave. He then ascended to Heaven and will return to earth one day to reign as King.
God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth, the dead will be raised and Christ will judge all men in righteousness.
