Welcome to The Journey Church’s new website and blog. As you will pick up from our website, we are a new church that has a passion for the West Rand and we have as our mission “journeying together to knowing God and making God known”.

One of the reasons for starting a new church is because we believe that the church is a powerful tool in God’s hands and God’s primary means of expanding His Kingdom. We realise that there are many other brilliant churches in the area who are also faithfully proclaiming the Gospel of God’s grace and we would gladly recommend these churches to anyone. But we have responded to God’s call to us to plant and to be a significant Gospel witness for God’s glory and Kingdom.

Another compelling reason for us to start another church is simply the numbers of people who live where we have started who do not yet know Christ. Since no one church is able to reach all these people, we believe that we need to be planting churches to reach the many who need Jesus. Peter Wagner said, “Planting new churches is the most effective evangelistic methodology known under heaven.” Ed Stetzer added to that by saying, “That’s because church plants can often engage within the lost culture in a way that established churches cannot or will not.”

O
ne other reason for investing our lives here is that Johannesburg is a great and influential city, arguably the most influential city in Africa. The whole city is one of the 40 largest metropolitan areas in the world and it is one of Africa’s only  two global cities. The world come here! We are seeking to love this city by loving the West Rand, a part of the city that could have up to a million people living in it.

It is an exciting adventure – join us when you can!
