At Journey Church International, we not only want to see people come to know Jesus, but we want them to grow in their relationship with Him. Our mission is to see people far from God become passionate Christians who make a difference in the world, and an integral part of making that happen is through spiritual growth.
In fact, we feel so strongly about every individual’s spiritual growth that we’ve made it one of our core beliefs. Every person has a next step in their faith walk, and whether you’re a brand new Christian or have been a devout believer for decades, we want to help you deepen your faith.
Explore our options for being baptized, reading the Bible cover to cover, getting involved, and serving others in the name of Jesus.
If you’re new to our non-denominational church in Lee’s Summit, welcome! We have a lot to offer, and we can’t wait to share it all with you. Discover your next steps at Journey Church as a new attendee and believer by clicking the “I’m New” button below.
We also invite you to learn more about who we are and what we believe. We want to get to know you, too, so be sure to fill out a Connection Card if you haven’t yet.
Whether Christianity is new to you or not (or even if you’re unsure about whether you want to be a Christian), we’re here to join you on your spiritual journey.
Baptism is an outward, visible sign of one’s acceptance of Jesus as their Savior. At Journey Church International, we believe in baptism by immersion (getting dunked!), because that’s how Jesus was baptized.
Whatever your age or stage of life, we encourage all new believers to get baptized as a testament of their new-found faith. But our baptisms in Lee’s Summit aren’t just for new believers! If you’ve recommitted your life to Christ, or haven’t been baptized by immersion specifically, then we recommend baptism as your next step at Journey Church as well.
Only about 30% of Christians spend time reading their Bibles every day, and just 20% have read it from start to finish.
It’s our belief that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God, which means reading it is the best way to truly get to know Him and discover what He asks of us as Christians. Journey Church International provides several resources for reading your Bible, and every year we participate in a Bible reading plan together. It’s never too late to join us!
Even small steps are worthy next steps. Our downloadable prayer guide is meant to help you consistently grow through prayer, learning how to talk to God as you would a friend. With information on how Jesus teaches us to pray and space to write in daily and weekly entries, you’ll find everything you need to move forward in your spiritual journey.
You have a lot of choices when it comes to connecting with other believers and taking your next step at Journey Church, but Growth Track is a great starting point for anyone. Growth Track is a monthly process designed specifically to help you identify your spiritual gifts and learn how to use those gifts in the way God intended.
Regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey or how long you’ve been a part of our community, we encourage you to participate in Growth Track to strengthen your relationship with Jesus and realize your full potential.
God never intended for us to do life alone, which is why we think everyone should make getting involved in a group their next spiritual step at some point. We have a wide variety of groups (both large and small), classes, and workshops to help you learn more about Scripture and how to apply it, dive deeper into current sermon topics, discover how to be a leader and a leader-maker, become a better parent, receive support in difficult times, and more.

God calls us to make a difference in our families’ lives, our church, our community, and the world. We believe every Christian should be doing something to help others and exemplify Jesus’ love — so much so that it’s part of our mission!
You have a unique set of passions and skills, and we have a place for you to serve and help us make ministry happen. Growth Track is a great next step at Journey Church to set you on the right path. Beyond that, we have all kinds of local and global initiatives, like regular service days and international mission trips, to give you as many opportunities as possible to make a difference.
