We are so excited that you decided to check us out. We want to make sure that you are well informed about us before your visit, so please read on to find out more about who we are and what we believe.
First off, CrossWind isn’t about being just another church of the community that offers mutiple services, serves the best coffee on Sunday morning, or has great worship and relevant teaching. CrossWind is about being church in the community: LOVE in action by showing people Jesus, because we believe that you will never meet a person that Jesus didn’t die for.
A vision statement cannot only be words on a sheet of paper or a screen– it has to be carried out through actions. CrossWind follows the vision of “LOVE in action” with Servant Evangelism, which includes doing things like passing out free donuts in the spring, freeze pops at the annual Fourth of July parade, or hosting a community carnival that is completely free.
CrossWind also is not a place for being perfect. We are a place where imperfect people can come together in real community, experience the love of Jesus, find hope in scripture, and grow together.
So, bring your questions and your doubts.
Bring your joys and your heartache.
Bring your hopes and bring your struggles.
They are welcome here.
You are welcome here!
