To invite our neighbors to discover, enjoy, and share the life Jesus offers… Together.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
What we believe…
There is a God.
He loves you and he is for you.
He is not disinterested or mad at you.
He wants you to know, trust, and love him as a good and perfect heavenly father.
He became a human, Jesus.
Jesus showed us what God is really like and died and rose again to restore our relationship with him and with one another.
He invites everyone to enjoy a transforming, meaningful, and relational life through his love… now and forever.
DISCOVER God’s love for you. Look out for Together #forSalem videos, new every Saturday. Watch on YouTube or listen to the podcast. Attend onsite, in-person parties every 2nd and 4th Sunday.
ENJOY your life with God and others. Connect Groups meet weekly to discuss life and messages. Smaller one-on-one partnering is launching soon, and is another way to go deeper in our faith journey.
SHARE God’s love with others. We believe God is FOR people and FOR Salem. Anyone can take part in our monthly #forSalem opportunities, and/or donate financially to keep a good thing going.
Am I trusting Jesus with every part of my life?
Am I personally getting to know God and applying what I learn?
Am I trusting God by giving away a percentage of my income?
Am I equipped and actively sharing the message of Jesus?
Being willing to take prayerful risks because God is who He says He is and will do what He says He will do.
Focusing our resources, time, and lives to reach those who don’t know Jesus yet.
Everyone serves everyone because love is what you do.
Getting to be the best versions of ourselves as a thank you to God.
Enjoying the love and freedom given to us by God and choosing not to take ourselves too seriously.

While we have two ‘paid staff,’ Crosscreek really relies on the support and efforts of an amazing list of contributors. Some attend staff meetings, comprise our Board of Directors, do the accounting, serve as hosts at our Drive-In Parties, and are even seen in cameos on our Together #forSalem episodes. Find out more about how you can plug in and join a team.
You asked and we did our best to answer. Whether you agree or disagree with Crosscreek’s stance on some heavy issues, this episode will give you a chance to better understand Crosscreek and hopefully your own beliefs at the same time.
