Who We Are
Crossroads is a community of Christian believers who gather for Sunday worship celebrations, small group studies, prayer times, and social occasions, inspiring people to pursue a meaningful relationship with Christ. Our worship environment is informal, with music led by our praise band and practical Bible teaching aimed at life-change. We serve the Stokesdale area with acts of loving service, and we support ministries around the world. We also share God’s love in our daily routines at work, at school, and in our neighborhoods. We invest in each other’s lives with challenge, encouragement, and help.
To build a growing community and culture where God changes lives.
We exist to honor God through worship, to enjoy God through fellowship, and to share God through serving.
Faith must be more than a set of beliefs. Real faith in Christ leads people to get involved in God’s agenda. We offer opportunities to help others in Jesus’ name, locally and around the world. Our church gives financially to over a dozen hands-on ministries and charities each year. We connect people with practical serving experiences. And we like to learn about new ways that the Holy Spirit is leading people to make a difference.
Life is too complicated, but church shouldn’t be. The rhythms of Crossroads are designed to usher us regularly into the presence of God, where we remember his love, joy and peace. This fresh perspective empowers us to go make a difference.
This life is not meant to be lived alone. God has built into us the need and desire to be in relationship. At Crossroads we emphasize genuine connections among people: We play together, pray together, serve together, eat together, and just hang out. We want to be real! We welcome all kinds of wounded folks, those who struggle, those who doubt, those who strive. We value forgiveness and encouragement. Life is hard, and we walk through the hardships together.
We have a sense of humor, and we try not to take ourselves too seriously. We love each other and we enjoy laughing. We share laughter at campfires, parties, dinners, and even worship. Our joy flows from love. Joy is part of the fruit of the Holy Spirit, and we want to overflow with it. The abundant life that Jesus gives is a deeply joyful life.
