In keeping with Protestant theology, we believe that the Bible, as contained in the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is fully inspired by God and therefore inerrant in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the only essential and infallible record of God’s self-disclosure to mankind. The Scriptures are the authoritative and normative rule and guide of all Christian life, practice, and doctrine. They are totally sufficient and must not be added to, superseded, or changed by later tradition, extra-biblical revelation, or worldly wisdom. The Bible is perfect in every way and shows us how to become and live as Christians.

The way of becoming a Christian is by faith alone in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, who came to us, born of a virgin, in full human form while remaining fully God. Jesus was, and is, perfect, and was crucified so that others could live. Three days later He rose from the dead, never to die again. He ascended into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own. Those who have faith in Jesus as their Lord in this life, and Savior from damnation in the next life, now live by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, becoming more like Jesus everyday.

We believe that God is one God. The one God has three persons: the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Just as God is one, so also, all believers are to be one. We believe in the unity and fellowship of all those that have faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We are one in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body, which is composed of all men, living and dead, who have been joined to Him through saving faith.

Written by Jason Watson

For more than 13 years River Region's Journey magazine has been serving all those seeking to learn more about the Christian faith and grow closer to God through Jesus the Christ. When we started publishing Journey in 1999 we wanted to do two things. The first was to spread the message of hope that Christ offers throughout the River Region, especially in places where that message couldn't normally be found (in the marketplace). Our second reason was to provide a platform that would unite Christians beyond their own church's four walls. This is still our purpose today.

Reaching the Community
We now distribute Journey through more than 450 locations across the River Region, of which, only 15% are distributed through churches, allowing us to share Christ's message with the entire community. We also work very hard to design our covers in a way that captures people's attention so we can share the "real-life" articles we publish each month.

Serving the Church
Two key ways that we promote Christian unity and community is by having different local Pastors write our Pastor's Perspective each month. We encourage each Pastor to write on what they're currently teaching their congregation so that all of our readers can get a sense of what other Christians are learning in the community. Also, each month we showcase the work of local churches through our Around the Community section. Churches send us news and announcements on how they're ministering to their own congregation, the community and even across the world.

It Takes All Of Us!
We believe every reader and advertiser is a member on our team. We know Journey couldn't continue without their support. Together we all use River Region's Journey to share the most important message one could ever share.
