How We Minister
As a Christ-centred ministry, we follow the biblical foundation of serving people with compassion, integrity and dependence on the Holy Spirit. In all we do, we share Jesus—the One who is full of grace and truth (John 1:14). The following are some of the founding principles of Journey Australia:
Healing is a journey and a process
By relying on the Holy Spirit to renew people, we try to provide a basis for a lifetime process of healing in our identity, sexuality and relationships. This process includes Christian discipleship, which needs to take place in the body of Christ. Thus each Journey group is part of the local church.
Men and women are image bearers
We also believe that healing best occurs when men and women minister together, releasing the presence of God to one another, which corresponds with our deepest needs for love.
Jesus is at the heart of healing
At the centre of Journey’s community is the cross of Jesus Christ. This is the means through which we have access to the Father’s love. The cross is the place where we lay down our sins and wounds, and receive the Holy Spirit of resurrection. At the cross, Journey seeks to explore the wounded and complex habits of the heart in order to impart the truthful, healing love of Jesus there.
