You’re not asking for the moon.

You just want a life where you feel fulfilled, and you have a sense of purpose. If you have a family, you want them to feel safe and cared for. You want to be a “good” person. To please God. Perhaps you want to follow Jesus in a deep and meaningful way.

But it’s hard.

You’re frustrated because life keeps getting in the way of life. There’s never enough money and time. You’re stressed. Worried. Not sure if you can pull it off. How is a person supposed to navigate the journey to fulfillment, purpose and peace with God without falling victim to the never-ending traps along the way?

That’s why we are here. The church is a place to help you along the road—the journey of life. To be a guide that helps you avoid failure and discover success. To help you develop powerful, real relationships with God and others.

Here’s how it works.

  1. Start by getting connected. Come check out Journey Bible Church. Make new friends and explore the claims of the Bible.
  2. Commit yourself to God. When you are ready, make a decision to follow Jesus and let him be your guide through life.
  3. Study the Bible. God promises to grow us through a process called discipleship. Join a Life Group or one of our men’s and women’s bible studies so you don’t have to figure anything out on your own.
  4. Serve. A lot of joy and fulfillment can be found by volunteering to serve others.
  5. Go live what you have learned from God out in your life, and help others experience the life they long for as well.

We hope to see you Sunday. Come explore all you want. Come see if this is the church home for you, and let us be there to help you grow in your understanding of Jesus and experience the life you’ve always longed for.

13700 W. 151st Street, Olathe



8:30am | Outdoor Worship
10:30am | Indoor and Online Worship

Our Main Campus is located on 151st Street just east of Pflumm.

When you arrive at for the first time, we have prime parking spots reserved just for you. Someone will greet you at the door, but he won’t ask for a secret handshake or interrogate you for your life story. There isn’t a dress code at Journey Bible Church. Most people dress casually. Some choose to wear a jacket or tie. It’s a personal preference.

Worship music is led by a band that specializes in modern pop-style worship tunes with a mix of classic hymns sprinkled in. The teaching part of the service is grounded in biblical truths that can be applied to your life. The service lasts about 70 minutes.

Do you have kids?

Journey Kids is for babies through 5th grade and has programs during both the 9 and 10:30 services. Babies through pre-K check in downstairs while K-5th graders check in upstairs. We use a secure yet simple system for checking your kids in and out. Of course, staff and volunteers are always there to help.  Learn more about kids programs.

What about teens?

We offer a staff-led Bible study for 6-8th graders on Sundays at 9am. This is a great way for middle school kids to get to know one another and learn about the Bible in a simple, no-pressure setting. Full programming for 6-12th grades takes place on Wednesday nights. Read more.

We hope to see you this Sunday at Journey Bible Church. If you have any question before you arrive, just ask at


730 W. Frontier Lane, Olathe


You’ve heard about Journey Bible Church, and you’ve thought about visiting. But you live on the west side of town, and you’re not sure if you want to make the drive or connect with people who don’t live in your neighborhood.

That’s why we are opening a new West Campus in the near future!

We have meeting space at 730 W. Frontier Lane where we offer a few bible studies and classes. Soon, we’ll have a place where we can hold regular worship services.

Our Mission

At Journey Bible Church, we are journeying together to be passionate followers of Jesus.

Becoming a follower, a disciple, of Jesus begins with an invitation. We’re not talking about a postcard in the mail. We’re talking about that still, small voice from God that says, “come follow me.” Those who choose to follow Him commit themselves to learning all they can about Him. They learn to imitate Him – in character, words and actions. They then tell others and help disciple others to know and be like Jesus.

We believe that there are four critical components to being a person who is passionately following Jesus — connect, grow, serve and go.

Connect refers to our need to connect in relationship with God and in a community of other believers who can support and encourage us along the journey. Grow is exactly how it sounds. Followers of Jesus are to be growing in our understanding, character, relationships and more. We must all serve the body of Christ — the church — by using the unique gifts and passions that God has given us. And we are to go on mission to reach people in our community, our city and the world with the gospel of Jesus.

The Bible

The Bible is God’s special revelation to mankind. Because of who God is, we believe the Bible to be inspired, without error, and the final word of authority in a believer’s life. 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-20.

The Trinity

We believe that there is one God who is personal and exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. John 6:27; John 1:1; Titus 2:12-13; Acts 5:3-4.

Creation and Sin

Man was created in the image of God to bring Him glory. However, the very first man and woman sinned and incurred death—not just physical death, but also spiritual death. Since Adam and Eve, all humans have been lost and born with a sin nature and live sinful lives apart from God. Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:10-19.


Because of His love, God sent His son Jesus Christ to be our Savior and Deliverer and Redeemer. Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. He was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. Luke 1:34-38; John 1:1,18; John 3:16-18; John 4:6.

Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Scriptures. We believe Christ arose bodily from the grave, that He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and that He is presently making intercession for us before the throne of God. 1 John 1:9; 1 Corinthians 15:1-6; Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 7:25; 1 Timothy 2:5.


Everyone who trusts Christ as their Lord and Savior will receive forgiveness of sins and experience eternal life. All who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and become children of God. John 3:1-16; John 1:12-14; Romans 6:23

Genuine Christ followers can be secure that they will spend eternity with God in heaven. Salvation is God’s work on our behalf, not based on any good we have done. All we do is respond to His gift by faith. God is the one who changes us. Therefore, it is impossible to be born into the family of God and lose one’s salvation. John 10:28-29; Romans 8:35-38; Ephesians 1:13-14.

Heaven and Hell

The Bible declares throughout that there is both a heaven and a hell. We believe that there will be a bodily resurrection of those justified by Christ unto everlasting blessedness. And we believe there will be a resurrection of the lost apart from Christ unto everlasting punishment. Revelation 20:11-15.


Everyone who has become a disciple of Jesus Christ should be baptized as a public declaration of what Christ has done for them. Acts 8:36-39; Acts 10:43-48. If you would like to know more about baptism or have a desire to be baptized, contact John Blackburn, Congregational Care Pastor.
