Connecting to Crossroads:
Crossroads is a place where God and people meet. Wherever you are at in your faith journey, we are glad that you have joined us. On Sundays we come together as a larger community to express our worship to God as we also listen to what he has to say to us through the Bible. During the week we gather in smaller groups at various times and places to care for one another as we share life and faith together. Between these times, we represent God among the people with whom we live in our homes, neighbourhoods, and workplaces.
We pray that you will experience the presence of God and the care of God's people as we spend time together. May the decisions you make today help you reflect more and more the character of God and the person God has made you to be. If you would like information on how to get more connected with our community, you are invited to click on 'Connect with Us' at the top of this web page.
Connecting to Christ:
How does a person become a Christian?
- By believing that Jesus, God's son, died for your sins and rose again
- By acknowledging your need, accepting God's forgiveness, turning away from your sins, and heading in Christ's direction
- By making Jesus the Saviour and Lord of your life
- By publicly declaring your commitment to Christ
You can do this by praying like this:
"Oh God, I acknowledge that I have sinned against You. I am sorry for my sins and I am willing to turn away from them. I now receive Jesus Christ as my Saviour and Lord of my life. From this moment on I will live for Him.
In Jesus' name. Amen"
And then tell someone about it. Tell a pastor and one or two close friends. It will help seal this act of faith in your mind and heart and help you know how to take some of the first steps of faith after.
