Mission & Values

Our Mission

Our mission is gospel transformation. We exist to see the gospel transform everything around us - ourselves, our families, our church, Middle GA, and the world. We are all about true transformation, not behavior modification or external conformity. Our aim is to make disciples of Jesus. Another way of saying our mission is that we exist to help people develop and deepen a relationship with God through faith in Jesus.

Core Values

We have many values at Sojourn, but we seek to keep four front and center. These core values help us stay focused, make decisions, and build and protect our church culture. We may re-word our core values from time to time, but the ideas will not change. These are not growth strategies that help us reach new people, they are in our DNA. This is who Sojourn is. We will embrace and seek to live out these values no matter what.

Gospel Centrality

Keep the main thing the main thing.
The Gospel, which is the main thing, is the good news that Jesus lived a sinless life, died for sin, and was raised. God forgives sin not because of what we have done, but because of what He has done. We never want to assume the gospel, but desire to teach it clearly and constantly (Romans 1:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

Authentic Community

Don't do life alone.
God intends that we live in authentic and intentional community. We desire to be real, take off our masks, and genuinely know and care for each other. As a family, we rejoice and mourn together
(Proverbs 18:24; Romans 12:15; Hebrews 3:13, 10:24-25; 1 John 1:7).

Missional Intentionality

Taking the gospel where we live, work, and play.
We believe every Christian is to live on mission, so we want to encourage and equip every believer to be a light where they live, work, and play. We want to build a church culture that is outward focused rather than simply trying to keep each other happy (Mt. 9:37-38, 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; 1 Pt. 2:9-10).

Sacrificial Love

We are nothing without love.
Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love God with all we are and then to love our neighbor. The Apostle Paul taught that we can be incredibly gifted, generous, and full of faith, but if we have not love we are nothing and gain nothing. As a church and as individuals, we want all we do to be done out of love (Mt. 22:34-40; John 15:12-13; 1 Cor. 13:1-3).
