The Journey ChurchP O Box 1756Santa Maria, CA 93456

We BelieveThat there is only one true and eternal God consisting of three co-equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.Gen. 1:1; Deut. 6:4; John 4:24; John 14:6-13; Gal. 4:6; 2 Pet. 1:17; Psa. 2:7ff.; Isa. 7:14; John 1:1-18; Heb. 1:8; Psa. 51:11; 1 John 4:13; Acts 5:3,4That the Bible, the Word of God, is our final authority and is trustworthy for faith and practice when interpreted responsibly under the guidance of God's Holy Spirit within the community of faith. Deut. 4:1-2; 2 Tim. 2:15, 3:16-17

Welcome! We hope you’ll join us for a weekend service to see for yourself what we’re about. Through practical messages, contemporary music, and creative media, we present the ageless truths of the Bible in a format that's easy to understand, even if you've never been to church. Our goal is to be a community where you can grow and not be afraid to be yourself. Our motto at the Journey is that “God is up to something good” so we hope that you come and see what he is doing.What to ExpectWe think going to church should be fun! We want you to enjoy yourself when you’re here. That means: * Dress casually and comfortably (jeans, shorts, t-shirts – whatever works for you is fine for us) * Great, live music (guitars, drums – the works) * Teaching that is practical and relevant to your life on the Central Coast * A service that won’t go on forever (hey, we all have things to do!) * A fun Children’s program that is safe and meaningful.

I was raised in church, but never had a personal relationship with my Savior untill a few years ago. Since I made the decision to follow Christ full speed, He's put inside of me an intense desire for His word and truth. He's also given me the desire to serve in ministry and I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve as youth director for The Journey Church.

Journey Leadership

Our Conviction: God is up to something good in our life, in our community and in our world. Our Dream:We dream of becoming a church: Where we multiply our faith by reaching winning not-yet-Christians to a relationship with God Where we multiply our faith by deepening our relationship with God and challenging ourselves into the Christian life Where we multiply our faith by being purposefully multi-cultural Where we multiply our faith reaching children and their families with the message of Jesus Where we multiply our faith by first being a blessing to the community we serve Where we multiply leaders by helping men and women connect their God given passion to a greater purpose Where we multiply our effectiveness by multiplying locations for the purpose of reaching not-yet-Christians. Our Core Distinctives:Multiplicational: It is our conviction that God wants to multiply his kingdom, not just add to it. Therefore, we expect Him to give us opportunities to multiply our faith, through reaching not-yet-Christians and deepening our trust in him, to multiply leaders by helping us connect men and women's passions with God's greater purpose and multiply locations by being a body that consistently plants like minded campuses. Multicultural: It is our Conviction that the body of Christ should represent his creative heart and strive to purposefully cross racial boundaries that tend to separate us. Incarnational (Missional): It is our conviction that the body of Christians should seek to bless the community it hopes to reach. It is our goal that we would be a church that displays God's love by ministering to people's needs even before they "sign up". It is our goal that our "Church Life" would appear where people are already going. Christians should seek to bless the community it hopes to reach. It is our goal that we would be a church that is seen as relevant and valuable.

Our Core DistinctivesMultiplicational: It is our conviction that God wants to multiply his kingdom, not just add to it. Therefore, we expect Him to give us opportunities to multiply our faith, through reaching not-yet-Christians and deepening our trust in him, to multiply leaders by helping us connect men and women's passions with God's greater purpose and multiply locations by being a body that consistently plants like minded campuses. Multicultural: It is our Conviction that the body of Christ should represent his creative heart and strive to purposefully cross racial boundaries that tend to separate us. Incarnational (Missional): It is our conviction that the body of Christians should seek to bless the community it hopes to reach. It is our goal that we would be a church that displays God's love by ministering to people's needs even before they "sign up". It is our goal that our "Church Life" would appear where people are already going. Christians should seek to bless the community it hopes to reach. It is our goal that we would be a church that is seen as relevant and valuable.

Welcome to the Journey

We BelieveThat there is only one true and eternal God consisting of three co-equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Gen. 1:1; Deut. 6:4; John 4:24; John 14:6-13; Gal. 4:6; 2 Pet. 1:17; Psa. 2:7ff.; Isa. 7:14; John 1:1-18; Heb. 1:8; Psa. 51:11; 1 John 4:13; Acts 5:3,4That the Bible, the Word of God, is our final authority and is trustworthy for faith and practice when interpreted responsibly under the guidance of God's Holy Spirit within the community of faith. Deut. 4:1-2; 2 Tim. 2:15, 3:16-17That God created humankind in the divine image. Through Adam's fall all became sinful, lost and condemned. Each human being by deliberate choice participates in sin and is in need of redemption through Christ's death and resurrection. Gen. 1:26-30; Eph. 2:1-22; Rom. 1:19-32, 5:12-21That Jesus Christ is God's Son, fully divine and fully human, the eternal and pre-existent Word. Heb. 1:1-3, 4:14-15; John 1:1-3,14That God offers forgiveness of sin and justification through faith in Christ Jesus apart from works. Such redemption is received by human individuals as God's gift upon repentance from sin and faith in Jesus Christ, enabling us to participate in Christ's reign as a present reality and a future hope. Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Eph. 2:8-22; 1 John 1:6-2:11That the Church is a community of faith consisting of regenerated believers with Christ as Lord. Such believers claim a personal relationship to God through Jesus Christ, follow the Lord in believer's baptism, share in the Lord's Supper, gather regularly for worship and covenant for mutual edification and care giving. Matt. 16:15-19; Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 16:30-33; 1That the Church is called in loyalty to Jesus Christ to proclaim in the power of the Holy Spirit the Good News of God's reconciling grace, inviting persons to receive salvation and follow Christ as His disciples. As disciples, we seek justice for all persons and the reform of society. Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Gal. 3:26-28; James 1:27, 2:8That Jesus Christ will return visibly, at which time He will raise the dead and judge all people. Believers will enjoy eternal fellowship with God as they participate in the fullness of His eternal reign, while unbelievers will suffer eternal separation from God. Matt. 24:29-31, 25:31-46; 1 Thess. 4:14-18; Rev. 20:4-6, 11-15
