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 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 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 are becoming disciples of Christ, who make disciples of Christ.
Where we come from
The Crossing Church was started in 2008 by a handful of families. Back then, these families imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, whether they had an extensive church history or never stepped foot in a church before. The Crossing hosted its first gathering in late 2008 at local school. After a year of being a portable church, we moved to our current building.
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. 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.
