Sojourn is a family of ordinary people changed by the love of Jesus, in the context of family, that live out his mission to our community, city, and world.
The most important thing we have to share with others is the Good News that the Father through Jesus is reconciling and restoring all things back to himself. This news is only good because it is offered to mankind on account of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Salvation is by grace through faith; and so those who repent and place their faith in Jesus are forgiven of their sins, justified by God, and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 2:3-6; Romans 1:16-17; 2 Corinthians 5:17).
Jesus re-frames our understanding of family by saying “whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother.” God has graciously invited us into this family of love and calls all believers to live interdependent relationships of love with one another. We celebrate what the Father is doing by opening our lives and homes to one another, bearing one another's burdens, and speaking the truth in love as we attain to maturity in Christ (Gen. 1:26-31; Rom. 12:4-5; 2 Peter 2:4-10).
Since the beginning of creation, God has been on mission to make himself known to humanity. Mission should therefore be the unmistakable activity of every believer as we take part in God's mission of restoring all things to himself. Mission is intentional and happens in everyday life with both local and global engagement in order to fulfill the great commission (Matt. 28:18-20; 2 Cor. 5:18).
