The Crossing began as a life group of Crossway Church of Greeley in the Fall of 2009. We officially launched as The Crossing in March of 2010. Since then, we have been steadily growing spiritually and numerically by the grace of God. We are thankful for all God has done and is doing in us and through us, and we are anticipating a great future as we look to impact the city of Fort Collins with the love and grace of the Gospel of Jesus.
To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the glory of God and the joy of His people
To Love God, Live in Gospel Community, and Leave a Legacy of Disciples who Make Disciples.
Our passion at the Crossing is to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.
We want to be known as a people who love the God of the Bible. We love God because He loved us first by sending his Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to lay down His own life for our sins so that we might have eternal life in Him (1 John 4:7-12). God is continuing to make His love known to us as the Holy Spirit helps us to see and be amazed by what the Son of God has done for us through His life, death, and resurrection. His love for us is the fountain from which our love for Him and others flows.
Our passion at the Crossing is to be a people who live in Gospel community.
The Crossing is not centered on a building but on the Gospel and community. The “Church” consists of those who are “in Christ.” In a broad sense, it is every person who has put his or her faith in Jesus Christ–from Colorado to the ends of the earth. In a local sense, the church is a group of people who trust in Christ and are participating in each other’s lives. In 1 Thessalonians 2:8, Paul says that they not only shared the gospel, but also their lives. This is our desire at the Crossing: to be authentic people who share our lives and point each other to the Gospel. The way we live in Gospel centered community is generally summed up by Scripture’s “one another” commands (love one another, serve one another, forgive one another, etc).
Our passion at the Crossing is to leave a legacy of disciples who make disciples.
The church has been given a Great Commission: to make disciples (Mat 28:19-20). We want to be people who are constantly using our actions and our words to point those in our contexts to the hope-giving message of the Gospel. Jesus has given us a mission, the “ministry of reconciliation” (2 Cor 5:18), and we are His ambassadors, called to “proclaim the excellencies of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light” (2 Pet 2:9). As a redeemed community, we want to be a light to our city by demonstrating the love and goodness of our God and telling people how they can be reconciled to Him through Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that God would use The Crossing to fill our city, our region and the world with communities of disciples who make disciples.
