In the first book of Acts, Jesus commissions his disciples to be His witnesses in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth (Acts 1:8). Spirit of Joy takes this command seriously, seeking to spread God's Word in our city, state, country, and around the world.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
At Spirit of Joy Church we believe that Christians are called to imitate Christ. We are committed to learning and putting into practice ways of equipping one another to live as followers of Jesus. We are interested in increasing degrees of transformation instead of simply increasing information.
We are pressing into a style of discipleship that more resembles apprenticeships than taking in data from yet another class. We are grounding our methodology into the very fabric of our congregation's purpose.
Spirit of Joy exists to Encounter God, Become more like Christ and Go serve the World.
TUESDAY NIGHT FRIENDSHIP SERVICE
Jesus taught that he was always to be found among the most vulnerable (Matthew 25:40) and one of ways we are following Jesus in this is serving adults with developmental and intellectual handicaps. Every week students and adults connected with SoJ come alongside members of various group homes and host a Bible study and worship experience. This is one way that this often forgotten community is included in the life of the church. The students and adults who serve in this ministry are themselves deeply touched by the presence and love of God as they meet Jesus where he said he'd always be. This ministry would not be possible without the support and training of Connection Ministries.
