Who We Are
As long as humans have walked the earth we have always looked up. We are curious what is beyond the big blue sky. At the Crossing we look up in a different way. Our goal is to look up to the central figure of the Christian faith, Jesus Christ.
This process has a name, "discipleship". We take the time to get to know who Jesus is, what He taught, and how to be more like Him. In doing so we become better people. By becoming better people we make the world a better place.
It is not enough to keep that ourselves. It would be selfish to do anything else. We do what we can to share the goodness of God with each other and the world around us.
We invite you to join us in this Journey.
We want to go wide not big. Our plan is to maintain a family atmosphere in very tangible ways.
We craft our events, outreaches, and services to value a warm atmosphere. You can meet new friends here. It is a good place to take the ones you have. There are plenty of fun activities for your kids. All of this happens in a casual, come as you are environment.
The Crossing Church is committed to starting churches that serve their communities. We serve Little Elm and we have been part of the formation of a local spanish outreach and a church in Celina, Texas. We believe that a church belongs to it's community. That belief goes deep. Our goal is to plant churches for local communities both at home and overseas.
The Bible is God inspired.
The Bible has many authors and was written across thousands of years. The constant factor that holds it all together is the inspiration of God. We believe that the Bible holds the key to re-establishing the relationship between God and people.
There is only one true God.
We believe that there is one God. We also believe that He is to big to be contained in a singular person, so He is expresses Himself in the persons of the Father, Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. This belief in what theologans call the Trinity is core to our understanding of God and how He relates to people.
Jesus is God.
Jesus wasn't just a guy who lived 2000 years ago and said we should all be nice to each other. We believe that Jesus is God who was born as a man, lived a perfect life, and died in our place to save us from our sins. Three days later he rose again, defeating death and providing us an eternal hope.
Man willingly fell into sin.
Humans have something inherently wrong with them. While we want to do right our propensity to do wrong looms over us instead. This darkness came to us from our first ancestors, Adam and Eve, but we need to own it as well.
Everyone can have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
God knew man needed help and sent Jesus as a man to give it. Jesus paid the price for our sin with His death on the cross. He provided a way to eternal life with his Resurection. Today we can know God through the door He opened.
Everyone has a place and a part in what God is doing.
Serving God isn't for the spiritual elite, it is for everyone. God has a place for each person. From helping out at church to sharing your faith, each person can make the world a better place.
