CORE VALUES

 

Crosspointe’s ten core values explain who we are – our identity. They are the building blocks of our ministry and really explain why we do what we do. We believe that core values are the constant, passionate, and biblical beliefs that drive our ministry.

 

Biblical Teaching

We strive to communicate God’s Word with integrity and authority through various means. We want to help all people find Christ and assist believers to mature in Him. We seek to be creative and innovative while staying doctrinally pure. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

 

Authentic Worship

We value worship that acknowledges God for who He is. We believe that honoring God in our everyday living ultimately fuels our corporate worship experiences. (Romans 12:1)

 

Lost People

We believe that all people matter to God, and that it is our responsibility to reach them through evangelism both locally and globally. We emphasize relational evangelism in order to impact our surrounding community. (Luke 19:10)

 

Family

We believe in providing opportunities and environments which strengthen marriages and families. We are committed to strong children and youth programs; therefore we emphasize the development and effectiveness of these ministries. (Deuteronomy 6:7,  2 Timothy 1:5)

 

Grace Oriented

We emphasize God’s unconditional love, acceptance, and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. We attempt to motivate people through love and thankfulness rather than guilt, shame, and duty. (Romans 6:14)

 

Prayer

We believe that prayer is the means by which we communicate with God, and should be the guiding force behind everything that we do. We strive to be a church that is characterized by passionate prayer. (Philippians 4:5-7)

 

Excellence

We believe that excellence honors God and inspires people. Therefore, we are committed to giving our best, to serving with distinction, and to adding value to people’s lives.          (Colossians 3:17)

 

Community

We strive to create environments and opportunities for community and fellowship. We believe that discipleship occurs, servant leaders are developed, and authentic ministry takes place in the context of community. (1 Corinthians 12:25-26)

 

Generosity

We believe that we should mirror the heart of God in selfless and sacrificial giving by investing our time, skills, and material resources in building the kingdom of God.  (Acts 2:44-46)

 

Cultural Relevance

We believe that we should be creative and innovative in order to effectively communicate God’s Word and connect people to His kingdom. We are more committed to effectiveness in ministry than adherence to tradition. (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
