Mission, Values, & Beliefs

Our Mission

The mission of Sojourn Church New Albany is to reach people with the gospel, build them up as the church, and send them into the world.

Our Values


We are committed both to the sufficiency of God’s Word and the power of the gospel to transform lives. These commitments, which we define in our Statement of Beliefs, we uphold by rooting all of our practice in the Bible and adopting a posture of dependence on the truth. At the same time, knowing ourselves, and especially knowing our own spiritual need, we are committed to speaking the truth with transparency and vulnerability.


As we pray for God’s Kingdom to come, we work to reflect its beauty in our churches. Our goal is not merely to change our neighborhoods or express diversity, but to do so with such Christ-centeredness, love, and purpose that people long to join in our mission. And because our churches are outposts of a great Kingdom, we aspire to excellence in all we do—especially in displaying the beauty of lives made fully human.


Our journey in this life is a journey to be made new. We learn to bear the fruit of the Spirit, to experience the presence of Christ, and to bring God’s transforming power into the world. Specifically, we are called to form vibrant, relational ministries that bring life to our communities. We hope to show people the goodness of God, who equips all believers for his cause and calls the church to empower them for action. We give to the world as God has given to us—generously sharing our best people and resources.

Our History

Launched in September 2000 as Sojourn Community Church, Sojourn Collective has grown from a small band of believers impassioned to live out our faith in practical and powerful ways into a family of churches that serve the Louisville metro region reaching across the river into Southern Indiana. Sojourn Church New Albany launched in the fall of 2011. Nestled in the heart of a historic New Albany neighborhood, we have inherited a beautiful legacy from the former Silver Street Elementary School. For over 100 years, the school used this building to serve the community’s mind, body, and soul. We are grateful to continue that work in Jesus’ name. 

Our Beliefs


God wrote the Bible through men and without error. (2 Peter 1:21)


God exists eternally in a Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 13:14)


Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He became a man, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, was buried, rose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven to redeem sinful people. (Hebrews 1:3)

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the supernatural agent who applies salvation to sinful people, regenerating, indwelling, sanctifying, and sealing them until the day of Christ’s return. (John 15:26)


God creates all people in His image as uniquely male and female. (Genesis 1:27)


All people are sinful and in need of salvation. Salvation is a gift of God, given by grace alone, and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8)

The Church

The church is both universal and local. (Acts 2:42)


Jesus will return to earth to judge all people and to rule and reign with his saints forever. (Matthew 25:46)

* we recite the Nicene Creed each Sunday during our worship service and the Apostles' Creed each Sunday during Bible Fellowship. We fully affirm these historic creeds of the Christian faith. As part of Harbor Network, we also affirm the Harbor statement of faith, which you can read here.
