Crossroads Core Values
Our core areas of ministry are: Leading People to Faith in Christ, Making Disciples, Fellowship, Service, Stewardship, Growth
1. We have a life-giving relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
2. We live by and express God's grace. God's grace makes a life-giving relationship with Him possible. Our own acts of grace can change lives, and acting in grace keeps us from ruining our own life.
Romans 3:23-24 and Ephesians 4:32-5:2
3. Our church is an outpost in the Kingdom of God. Therefore we have a "kingdom view" of seeing the world as Jesus saw it. This view helps us serve Him to "the ends of the earth."
4. We live a servant lifestyle. We are God's servants and practice servanthood by choice.
5. We promote healthy families. Families are God's creation and chosen plan for making the world work and for transmitting the values of His Kingdom.
Genesis 2:22-24 and 1 Timothy 5:8
6. We are a healing church. Jesus welcomed those who needed healing. We are God's agents for providing help to those who need it most.
