We believe God uses many things to grow our faith. At Crossroads, we’ve identified 5 things God uses to grow our faith therefore we want to create and embrace these environments in all we do.
Practical Teaching: We don’t just want to inspire people, we want to help them live out their faith 7 days a week. Every teaching ministry of Crossroads focuses on practically helping people live out what they’ve learned. When we practically do what we’ve learned, our faith in God grows.
Private Disciplines: When we read our Bibles, pray, give, share our faith, etc., God grows our faith. It’s in these moments alone with God, when we exercise our faith, that we experience Him in new and powerful ways. At Crossroads, we give people tools to help them with their private disciplines.
Providential Relationships: Every faith story involves relationships. God often uses people to challenge us spiritually, live as an example to us or help us understand God’s love for us. At Crossroads, we create opportunities for providential relationships.
Personal Ministry: There is nothing better than stepping out in a ministry situation where you are in over your head. In those moments, God gives us strength and helps us because we’ve stepped out in faith. Faith stories often include times when we allow God to use us for His purposes therefore at Crossroads, we create environments for people to step out and be used by God in amazing ways.
Pivotal Circumstances: Our faith grows in the hard times. In these heartbreaking moments, we can either pivot towards God or away from Him. When we pivot towards Him, God grows our faith. At Crossroads, we are unable to create pivotal circumstances but we create environments where we can walk with people who are experiencing difficult and unimaginable circumstances.
