Who we are
Here's the deal, The Crossing Church cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. The Crossing is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same love and freedom.
We are a local church with global mission, to know Jesus and make Him known. We take the time to get to know who Jesus is, what He taught, and how to be more like Him. It is not enough to keep that to 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.
Our culture statements
EVERY PERSON MATTERS
We believe that every person is created and loved by God; because of that, every person matters to us. We value people. We care for people. We celebrate people. We invest in people. We extend grace to people. We love ALL people. We want every person that walks through our doors to feel like they belong. The Crossing is a safe place to explore faith and seek Jesus. We are specifically focused on reaching those far away from God. We desire to bring the broken home, and believe that found people find people. We believe every person has purpose and unique gifts to be utilized by God. You matter.
John 3:16, Luke 15, Luke 19:10, Matthew 18:14, Ephesians 4:11-12
EVERYTHING BEGINS AND ENDS WITH FAMILY
At the Crossing we are family. We believe that life change happens best through relationships and that God’s love is best expressed when we care for each other. We are a community of believers for all ages and walks of life. We want to do life together. We want you to find community here and a sense of belonging. We value the family unit and believe that God’s promises are best carried out by his design. Our goal is to help all kinds of families, in all kinds of situations, discover God’s design. We want to help them dive deeply into the gospel of Jesus so that they can discover and pursue God’s design from wherever they are.
Proverbs 27:17, Acts 2:42-47
GENEROSITY IS OUR NORM
Generosity is about giving more than what is required. We want to be contributors, not consumers. We see generosity as a privilege and a way of life that Jesus has called us to live. Generosity starts in our hearts. It isn’t just about finances; it’s about giving our time, our talents, and our treasures. Because God has given richly towards us, it's our honor to give back to Him and serve others. We give beyond ourselves to bear one another’s burdens and impact lives for the kingdom of God. We are a community of givers and generosity is our norm.
Luke 6:38, Malachi 3:10, Matthew 25:35-40
GROWING PEOPLE CHANGE
We value transformation so people can change and become more like Jesus Christ. We believe we do not have to settle for a broken and dysfunctional life. Growth is not automatic, it is a daily decision that requires action. We promote a process of spiritual maturity and change called discipleship. Through this process we provide environments for growth and intentionally walk with people, helping them take their next step in becoming more like Jesus Christ. We believe it is never too late for anyone to become who God is calling them to be and to experience a bold life in Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:17, Gal 2:20, Colossians 3:10
BEING SPIRIT LED MATTERS
Jesus is present with us through the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God inspires and empowers us to live out our faith. We believe in slowing down, listening, and allowing the Holy Spirit to guide our lives and guide us in every area of our church. Our response to God’s Spirit matters. Through the presence of Jesus we expect and experience daily miracles.
Gal 5:16, Acts 2:1-4, Romans 8:14
What we believe
Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives. We believe that the Bible holds the key to re-establishing the relationship between God and people.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.
We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together. Serving God isn't for the spiritual elite, it is for everyone. God as a place for person.
Where we're headed
What's the bottom line? More than ever, The Crossing Church is committed to fostering a family built around hope. Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for healing. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion and belonging remain at the center of who we are as followers of Christ.
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 also 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 churches across North Dallas. 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.
