Sojourn Houston is a family of neighborhood churches. We’re devoted to the glory of God and the expansion of the Kingdom. We desire to join God in the renewal of our city by planting church-planting churches, each pursuing the good of their neighborhood. Member churches are marked by shared theology, shared ecclesiology, a shared philosophy of ministry, and shared values. We work together to (1) plant local and international churches, (2) promote justice and mercy, (3) foster healthy biological and spiritual families, (4) integrate faith and work, and (5) promote creative expression.
We are organized for high accountability and low control. We’re aiming to combine the freedom and flexibility of church planting with the unity and efficiency of multi-site. We truly want to function as a family of churches, but we also want for each church to be distinct, meeting the specific needs of its neighborhood.
Our Family of Churches
We believe the Church is marked primarily by submission to the Scriptures. The Bible is the pure Word of God, the only absolute authority for Christians, and all things within the church are governed/managed accordingly. As a broadly Reformed family of churches, we affirm three marks of a true church: (1) the faithful preaching and teaching of the Word, (2) the faithful administration of the Sacraments (Baptism and the Lord's Supper), and (3) the faithful exercise of church discipline. These marks, in addition to the Sojourn Collective values, will characterize each and every Sojourn congregation. In order to foster deeper community, we encourage you to connect with the church nearest your home.
