How is Crosscreek going to be a community that invites our neighbors to discover, enjoy, and share the life Jesus offers… together? The key to all of it is YOU.
Crosscreek’s mission is to invite our neighbors to discover, enjoy, and share the life Jesus offers… together. What does that actually mean and what role do we all have to play in this mission?
For many, the idea of religion brings up negative feelings and thoughts. And for good reason: religion has been used to control and manipulate people for thousands of years. We see in the Gospels that Jesus created his Church to be something completely different. But if that is the case, why does the American Church seem so religious? How can we get back to what Jesus intended from the beginning?
When we read the historical accounts of the first Jesus Followers there seems to be a vast difference between what we see in them and what we see in our current American Church. Why is that? What made a group of persecuted Jesus Followers who were on the run for their lives such an effective force for change in their world? What have we missed in our current view of the Church?
The world has changed. This new future needs a Church that adapts as well. This episode sheds some light on how the leadership of Crosscreek has imagined this adaptation and where we see ourselves heading in the near future.
