MISSIONCrossway exists to help people take next steps with Jesus
In 2025 our vision is to see the living hope of Jesus surging through the next generation. To accomplish this we will focus on reaching families and equipping them to disciple and launch young people who passionately love and follow Jesus above all else.
CompassionGod is love. He has compassion for all people where we are, in our brokenness, because he knows where we can be through Christ. Matthew 9:36, 2 Corinthians 1:34
TruthJesus is the truth. As followers of Jesus, we are called to live and to minister following the Bible, the written truth. To the best of our ability, we will be true– to Jesus, to the Bible, to ourselves, and to each other. No masks, no hiding, no games.John 1:14, 3 John 1:4
JoyThe joy of the Lord is our strength. This joy transcends circumstances, good and bad. God walks with us, and in spite of ourselves, He has rescued us. God wants our engagement and offers the promise that we will be home with Him one day. Therefore, to the best of our ability, we will live with joy.Psalm 126:3, John 15:10-11
TrustSince the creation of the world, God has been inviting people to trust him. Those who accept this call to action will experience abundant life. Trust is paramount in our relationship with God, and made in the image of God, trust also is vital in our relationships with others. Therefore, to the best of our ability we will trust God and build relationships of trust with one another.Psalm 143:8, Proverbs 3:5-6
GenerosityRecognizing that everything belongs to God, generosity is joy-fully giving to further his Kingdom in this world. Just as God was generous in sending his Son and Jesus generously gave his life for us, we are called to be generous with what God has entrusted to us - our time, talent and treasure. Therefore, we as a church will be generous to the world. God promises to bless and provide for us, as individuals and as a church, when we are generous.John 3:16; Acts 20:35; 2 Corinthians 8-9
