Beliefs

GOD THE FATHER: God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are equal and are one God.

Genesis 1:1,26,27; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

JESUS CHRIST: Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign.

Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-15; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13

THE HOLY SPIRIT:  The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and Jesus Christ. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. This immersion into Spirit-led living provides the Christ-follower with the power to live a faithful and fruitful life, understanding of spiritual truth, and the boldness to share the good news with others. He also gives us spiritual gifts. As Chirst-followers, we seek to live under His daily control.

2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25

THE BIBLE: The Bible is God's Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.

2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 12:6; 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5

HUMAN BEINGS: People are made in the image of God and are the supreme object of God's creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin.

Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; 59; Romans 3:23

SALVATION: Salvation is God's free gift to Human Beings, but people must accept it. People can never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by receiving Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:12; 14:6; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1 7.

ETERNITY: People were created to exist forever. They will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in relationship with Him is eternal life.

John 3:16; 12:25; 14:2-3; 17:3; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15

What is #ForYou?

Too many times, the church is known by what their are against. At Crossroads, we want to be known by what and WHO we're for.

We are for the restoration of Toledo, Sylvania, and all of the communities around us. We are for kids and students. We are for families. We are for single people. We’re for young people and older people. We are for broken people. We are for changed hearts.

How can I get involved?

Being #ForYou is a way of life. It's about making tiny conscious efforts every day to change the world around you. A simple way to show someone you are for them is by paying it forward. Pay for someones coffee or lunch, without any expectations. Help your neighbor, encourage a co-worker, get involved with a local school, or share kindness & positivity on social media.  

How will this change our communities? Our church? The people around us? There is only one way to find out how far this will go. Let’s get started and be #ForYou wherever we find ourselves.

Find a For You opportunity? Get others involved by using the #ForYou hashtag on social media!

#ForYou Merchandise

#ForYou is more than a movement, it's more than a brand, it is a mission - a mission of telling people that the Crossroads community is FOR them, and that there is a God that is for them too. Help us spread the movement with #ForYou swag. T-Shirts, Popsockets, Wristbands, and Bumper Stickers (free) are available for purchase on Sunday's in the Café.

"Great family oriented church. We love reaching out to our community
and have many opportunities to serve."

"It's the best place to be. The feeling you get when walking
through the front doors is like no other."

A fantastic, come as you are church. A great place for those who aren't
sure about church and church people. And coffee. Lots of great coffee!
