A community of people following the way of Jesus and learning to be present.

We believe that all people are created in the image of God and should be loved and cared for as such. We believe that we are called to be present to God, ourselves, one another, and creation. We believe the kingdom of God is both here and unfolding all around us. We believe that every good deed of justice, kindness, love, and mercy, paints a more clear picture of the kingdom that is at hand and unfolding. We believe following the way of Jesus leads to the most whole and free expression of life. We believe that Jesus’ life is worth imitating. We believe the practices of prayer and examine reveal the ways in which the message of Jesus has become subverted by our personal agendas and choose to trust Jesus’ voice above all others.


We strive to be a church where “saints and sinners sit side by side, the purest woman and the prostitute shall grasp hands in accord, where the pious man and the drunkard shall embrace the unity of the lord and a holy life.”*


*A quote from Joseph Widney, a founder of the Church of the Nazarene.



We are motivated by the great commission of Jesus: "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”"


We are a Christian community in the Wesleyan tradition committed to clarifying the kingdom of God through sharing life together and being good neighbors to those around us. We do this by following the way of Jesus and learning to be present. 


To leverage our abilities, assets, and resources to bless those around us without expectations.




In 2022, Journey Community Church moved back into the city of Dallas after residing in Mesquite, TX since its formation in 2017. Since it's formation, Journey has always strived to bless those around them without expectation of return. That is accomplished by leveraging their abilities, assets, and resources to engage the community through volunteering, safe and fun activities, and prayer.
