WHO WE ARE


OUR MISSION:

Creating a community where people are
welcomed home...built up...and sent out.

WELCOMED HOME
CONNECT

Crossroads isn’t just some place where we do church...it’s a community where we do FAMILY.  And here’s what that means:  No matter what your family experience has been in the past, we want this community of faith to become the family you always longed for, a place of real connection and belonging...with God, and His Church.  No matter who you are, what you’ve done, or where you come from, we want this to be the family who always  says with our words and our actions, “Welcome Home.”

BUILT UP
GROW

One of the greatest joys of being a parent is getting to play a part in helping your children grow.  Well, the same is true here at Crossroads.  One of our family’s greatest joys, is watching those who are welcomed in begin to take the next steps of growth on their journey.  Whether spiritually, emotionally, or relationally, we love seeing people built up, and grow to become all that God has created them to be.  Our goal is to foster environments where that growth is facilitated, encouraged and championed in everything we say and do.

SENT OUT
GO

Finally, we believe people were created on purpose...FOR a purpose.  
One of the most fulfilling things in life is to discover who it is you were created to be, and to live that out.  This is especially true when you are living for something bigger than yourself as part of God’s family..  So at Crossroads, our hope and goal is to help people discover their unique calling in that family, and to begin to live that out in their everyday lives.  We like to call this living on mission.  And when YOUR relationship with God begins making a difference in the lives of your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers, you are truly living on mission.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

Crossroads, a United Methodist congregation, was founded 1995. After a few weeks of inviting and recruiting a core group of committed people, our first official meeting was in the upstairs of an office building with 35 people in attendance. We immediately outgrew that facility and then moved to a number of locations including a delicatessen, a Boy Scout hut, a poolside and then, a roller rink.

From there we rented a warehouse and called this our home for the next number of years. We purchased 16 acres of land and were given, through an amazing miracle, an additional 6 acres of land on which we built our current structure.

Our history declares something of our DNA. First, we believe the church is not a location or a building but is a group of faithful believers gathered together to love God, love people, and to win this world for Christ. We will always do whatever is necessary to reach one more person for our Lord. In addition, we will always endeavor to join God for the next adventure on which He takes us.

WE BELIEVE

God

We believe in the Trinity: There is only one God and He is eternally existent in three persons. Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that God is good and that He desires to have relationship with man.

The Father

The Father is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He created man in love and in His own image for the purpose of fellowship. After the fall and rebellion of man, He sent His own Son to destroy the works of the devil and provide a way for man to have restored relationship with Him.

The Son

Jesus Christ is the beloved Son of God who was with the Father and Holy Spirit from the beginning. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days, conquering death and demonstrating His power over sin and death.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is God, the Lord and giver of life, who was active in the Old Testament and given to the Church in fullness at Pentecost. He comforts and sustains believers and empowers them for service and witness, cleanses man from the old nature and conforms us to the image of Christ. The baptism in the Holy Spirit releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the infallible, inspired Word of God. It is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction and reproof and contains all that is needed for Christian beliefs and conduct.

Sin

God walked with man in perfect relationship, but through the sin of one man (Adam), all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. The relationship was broken and death was the result.

The Good News

God reached out to us by sending His only Son to redeem us. Christ’s death on the cross paid the penalty for the sins of the whole world. We could not have restored our relationship with God by our own self-improvement or good works, but only through receiving the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.

The Christian Life

In response to God’s love for us, we can’t help but love Him and love others. With joy, we obey His commandment of making disciples of all people. He has called us to a life of intimacy with Him through worship, prayer, Bible study, community and serving others. We believe the chief end of humanity is to love God and enjoy Him forever.
