To Know God & Make Him Known
– we exist as a church “To Know God And Make Him Known”
Theme Verse – “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16
Motto – “Ask Questions, Seek Direction, and Find The Way”
We want to be the kind of church where people are free to ask questions, to seek direction from God’s Word (the Bible) and to find the Way that leads to peace & rest for our souls.
Core Values – Jesus broke the entire Bible down to two things: Love God and love people.
Those who truly know God, will love Him with everything in us.
- With all our heart – passionately worshiping Jesus as Lord
- With all our soul – pursuing purity
- With all our mind – building a biblical worldview
- With all our strength – investing our lives in building the Kingdom of God
Those who truly know God, will love the people around them
- Sacrificially serving others
- Helping people to experience God’s love, forgiveness and acceptance.
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Whoever does not love, does not know God, for God is love.” 1 John 4:7
Crossroads is a warm, welcoming church family that will allow you to develop deep, personal relationships with other Christ followers. Whether it’s in an adult Bible class, a small group or just a casual conversation down by the library, you have the opportunity to engage in building strong relationships and being challenged to go deeper with Christ.
Though we are a small church, we have a big heart. You will find Crossroads to be a church that pursues excellence in ministering to the broad spectrum of God’s family & our surrounding community. We want 0% unemployment. That means, everyone involved in at least one ministry, doing their part.
We believe the most important ministries happen outside the four walls of the church. And so we partner with community agencies and strive to meet real needs in people’s lives. We also see our building as a tool for God to use. So there are a host of community groups and several sister churches who also make Crossroads their home.
We frequently promote opportunities to serve in local ministries within our community, or to become part of a team that will go cross-cultural (either in the Twin Cities or to the ends of the earth) in order to serve people from other tribes & language groups.
