FIRST STEPS

Life is a journey. We believe God has a plan for our lives that includes taking steps towards relationships, not religion. If you are exploring, curious, or even skeptical about God then you are at the right place! Most people at The Journey began just like you, so you are welcome and belong.  We would never expect someone to just blindly follow anything, especially when it comes to our spiritual lives.  The Journey was designed for people to process questions, explore, and investigate at your own pace. Below are a few steps to consider if you are exploring God or new to church.

CHECK OUT JOURNEY GATHERINGS

We think you’ll find something relevant and helpful to explore God. It’s an opportunity to connect with God and others who are in that same pursuit.  Join us for a Sunday Gathering at one of our sites or watch online.

BEGINNINGS CLASS

One of the best places at The Journey for you to explore God and ask questions is the Beginnings Class.  It has helped many people to take their next step.  Check out our Journey Classes Page for more info, and other upcoming class options.

JOIN A NETWORK TEAM

Don’t try to do this alone. Network Teams provide a fun and easy way to get know a few other Journeyers, impact our community, and take next steps with God along the way.

 

RESOURCES

DISCOVER A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS. We believe that God wants to connect with you.  He is waiting for you with open arms. The Bible makes this clear when it says that if we draw near to God, He will draw near to you (James 4:8). Check out The Bridge Diagram of how you can have a relationship with Jesus.
