Transform the world – starting in Bend on a journey through faith, hope, & love in Jesus.
Faith | who?
Journey loves Bend, Oregon. What’s not to love? Amazing mountain range, great snowboarding, spectacular rivers, dozens of lakes, wonderful seasons, and a city filled with creative arts and spectacular coffee.
More than anything, we love the people of Bend. Bend is a community and we want to make it the best community to live in. Journey is made up of people that love their friends, co-workers, neighbors, family, and especially our baristas.
Hope | how?
Jesus once said, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this; that you would lay down your life for your friends.” (John 15:12-13 ESV) Journey has a dream of sharing God’s love by serving others.
Jesus said of himself, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45 ESV) Jesus was describing his own life – a life of service, one that demonstrated true love.
We believe that faith, hope and love are best demonstrated when lived out (serving
others). Journey serves a variety of individuals, groups, and communities weekly.
Love | why?
Our success at Journey is measured by life change. We believe God loves you just as you are. However, he loves you too much to allow you to remain the same. A life that encounters Jesus Christ will discover a faith that produces hope because of love. We are motivated to change by grace not guilt.
This is WHY! It’s all about Jesus. Jesus loves YOU.
Unfortunately many people have unjustly called themselves Christians. We believe the Bible says that we become “new creations” when we journey with Jesus. This is because Jesus forgives us, sets us free, and allows us to have: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. A new person is better than a nice person. A new person happens because of faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ.
