OUR STORY

Journey the Church was started in July 2010 by six families who love the Lord and believe in a simple vision of loving the world one person at a time.  We started holding services in a home on Wednesday nights and after a few months started meeting on Sundays at Pitts Ranch Park, around a tree.


One cold and overcast Sunday, it was suggested we should hold services inside.  The following Sunday we held our first Sunday service in the auditorium at La Mariposa Elementary School. We met for ten weeks before outgrowing La Mariposa, and moved on to the Camarillo Boys & Girls Club.  During our time at the Camarillo Boys & Girls Club, we grew as a church substantially, and met amazing people who also felt called to love the world one person at a time. In March 2013 we were invited to move into the Camarillo Community Center.


We have been blessed by God through our entire journey, and believe that He has big plans for this kingdom-based church.  Some of those plans were realized in the summer of 2014 when we created a new mission organization, Loving the World Ministries.  Come join us as God continues to make more history! 


“O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them”. (Psalms 40:5)

What we believe


Jesus is the Senior Pastor

At Journey the Church we honor Jesus Christ as the Senior Pastor:


He is the ultimate leader;

He is the foundation of The Church (1 Corinthians 3:11);

He is the builder of The Church (Matthew 16:18);

He is the redeemer of The Church (1 Peter 1:17-21);

He is the head of The Church (Colossians 1:18);

He is the chief shepherd of The Church (1 Peter 5:1-4; John 10:1-30); and

He is the one who loves The Church as His very own bride (Ephesians 5:25-32).


The Bible is the Inspired Word of God


We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God: God-breathed and authoritative

(2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20 21)

We believe there is one God, in three: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

(Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Jude 20-21)

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He willingly died for the sins of the world, and defeated death once and for all as He rose from the grave three days later

 (John 3:16; Colossians 1:19; Hebrews 10:1-18)

We believe that salvation comes by grace through our faith

(Ephesians 2:8)

We believe that The Church is the universal body of believers, united in Christ with Jesus as the head

 (Acts 2; Romans 12:3-5; 1 Corinthians 12:12-26)

OUR values


LOVE

We LOVE because we know that Jesus LOVES everyone – even sinners like us because we are made in His image. God doesn't create junk. God makes masterpieces. No scripture is more important to us than this: “LOVE the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: “LOVE your neighbor as yourself.” There is no commandment greater than these.”

 (Mark 12:30-31)


GROW

We are called to GROW in our spiritual journey with Jesus. This does not mean to just simply acquire more and more head knowledge, but instead to mature in faith by encountering God through prayer, through reading His word, through experiencing community, through overcoming obstacles, and through choosing to GROW in the midst of trials. 


SERVE

We are called to SERVE: to give out of the generosity of our hearts and to busy our hands and feet in helping, assisting, working, and providing for one another. Faith without deeds is dead (James 2:26). Our faith is shaped, molded, and is displayed clearly through our acts of SERVING.
