LIVE and LOVE like Jesus!
Since his arrival at Crossroads this summer, Lead Pastor Phil Heller, our Elders, Lead Team and many others have been praying for "God, bring clarity and unity around the mission, vision and strategy God has for Crossroads.”
As they prayed and considered God’s mission, and the opportunity we have to join Him in His mission, their hearts began to resonate with the challenge of what this truly looks like and something became clear...that joining God in His mission is best accomplished by truly emulating Jesus.
“Whoever claims to belong to God must live as Jesus did” -1 John 2:6
When we choose to follow Jesus by accepting Him as Savior and making Him Lord, we make a deliberate decision to LIVE and LOVE like Jesus and we sense God calling us to this as our new marching orders, as the way to join Him in His mission.
