Journey Values

Appreciation – We express gratitude for the work that God is doing in and through the people that are in our lives. Showing appreciation is a love-centered action that encourages others as God continues to change their hearts and use them to build His Kingdom.

We say “thank you”...a lot!

 

Affirmation – We are affirming in our relationships, calling to life the truths that God has placed in us to motivate and inspire those around us to live out the life that God has predestined for each individual – our gifts, our calling, our purpose, our mission.

We look for the gold in others!

 

Exhortation – We walk alongside one another as encouragers to the faith; lifting one another and motivating one another through God’s sovereignty and love. We encourage one another to step out beyond our comfort, pushing into the Kingdom of God, in order that God’s purposes for our lives be accomplished.

We encourage and challenge one another to greater things!

 

Unity – We promote tangible unity within our congregation, within our churches, and within our communities so that others can see the evidence of God’s Kingdom moving on earth. We will partner with other like-minded organizations (secular or Christian) to be a positive influence in our communities.

We like doing things with others!

 

Resilience – We continue to trust that God’s plans and purposes will prevail in the midst of adversity. We are confident in God’s sovereignty over His creation and that He will continue to work all things for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purposes.

We know that God’s got this!

 

Evangelism – We will do whatever it takes, short of sin, to spread the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Because we are convinced that it is the Gospel Message that will bring real life change to the people of our cities, the nations, and to the world.

We do whatever it takes to reach others for Jesus!

 

Generosity – We are willing to be sacrificial in the use of all of our blessings (giftings, talents, finances, etc.), so that we can be a blessing to others and continue to see God’s work done for His Kingdom – in our communities, in our church, and in our relationships.

We are irrationally generous toward others!
