Crosscreek is a church community that I am excited to invite my friends to—even friends who have been hurt by church in the past, even friends who have vowed never to set foot in a church building again. I can trust—from experience—that they will be treated with kindness and with love, that they will be welcomed and encouraged, and that they will encounter Christians whose lives have been transformed by Jesus, and who are excited to see Jesus transform the lives of others as well.
If you are looking for a church where you do not have to hide who you are or pretend to be something you are not to fit in,
...or If you are looking for a church where you can truly love God with all of your mind as well as all of your heart and all of your strength,
...or If you are looking for a church where you can practice loving your neighbor as yourself,
...or If you are looking for a church that—as far as I can see—is always striving to do better at following Jesus and building authentic, loving, Christ-like community.
If you are looking for any of these, then I would invite you to Crosscreek too.

It often seems impossible that anything could bring peace to our world, our relationships, and especially the turmoil we secretly feel inside of us. But the impossible things Jesus did proved it is possible to experience true, lasting peace now and forever.
