“Transforming lives by helping people
take their next steps with God.”
STATEMENT OF FAITH
All members of the Board of Elders, as well as all paid Staff members of Crossbridge Community Church (C3), adhere without reservation to the following statement of faith:
A. We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, fully trustworthy, authoritative Word of God.
B. We believe that there is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
C. We believe that Jesus was both God and man, born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life. He was crucified and died as a penalty for our sins and was bodily resurrected from the dead on the third day. He ascended to the Father’s right hand, from where he is coming again to personally claim his bride (the church).
D. We believe that man is born with sin and separated from God. Man’s connection with God is renewed through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
E. We believe that God’s Spirit lives in all Christ Followers enabling them to live a life that pleases God. He fills and refills Christ Followers in response to their submitting to God’s will. We believe the Holy Spirit was given for us to minister to needs both inside and outside of the church. And we believe in the spiritual unity of Christ Followers.
CORE MINISTRY VALUES
We will live life as a JOURNEY.
God is writing a story and is intensely interested in you joining that story. Growth in your journey is more important
than where you are in that process, so we will focus on helping you take your next step.
We will live life in RELATIONSHIP.
Your journey should intersect and impact other people’s journeys, even when it’s messy. Interconnecting your journey
is the best way to make a positive impact in your community and world.
We will pursue our PURPOSE.
As individuals and as a church, we are created with a unique, God-given purpose. Part of the journey of growing
in our relationship with God is discovering how He designed us for that purpose and then living in the joy that it brings.
We will live a life of SACRIFICE.
Living a God-centered, purposed-filled life will cost you something – financially, emotionally, and with your time.
But the rewards far outweigh the sacrifice.
We will live an OTHERS-FOCUSED life.
When we have to choose, we will put the needs of people who do not have a relationship with God before our own.
The value of a transformed life is worth more than our own desires.
