There are many “Why” questions of life. Why would I be involved in a church? Why would I spend my time there? Why CrossBridge?
Because God’s Love
This answer is a little abrupt, rather straightforward, and is even grammatically incorrect! This, though, is a succinct way to communicate the fundamental and overwhelming truth that God loves us. We are undeserving and fail often, but as illogical and crazy as it seems, the Lord loves you dearly and wants to have a personal relationship with you.
Because God’s Love really involves the idea of God’s Grace, which covers us with an undeserved love. At CrossBridge, everything we do is motivated by this mind-blowing concept of His unconditional love.
A common misconception is that going to church and being a Christian is about keeping a bunch a rules and regulations. However, when you realize that God loves you first, no questions asked, then it puts things in order. Actually, it’s about His desire to have a relationship with us, His desire to accomplish good in and through us, and His gift of forgiveness through Jesus, the Son.
In response to Because God’s Love, we worship Him in songs and in life. Worship singing is a special part of all that we do at CrossBridge. We want to celebrate, praise, honor, and exalt our Almighty, Righteous, Loving Heavenly Father. Worship isn’t contained only in our singing, but also involves living lives that declare His glory as well.
God loves us so much that He has given us His Word, the Bible, for our good. We want to teach these truths as they are intended … loving instructions to grow in our relationship, to impact others, and to do what is good for us! Full of truth and meaning applicable to everyday life, we believe the Bible is the holy, inspired word of God. Whether in a Sunday Service, a Bible study, or in a casual conversation, our teaching activities revolve around growing each individual towards a mature relationship with Christ.
As a reflection of the way God has loved us, we seek to love others through serving. As a genuine family, located in the heart of northwest Indianapolis, we exist to serve our surrounding community. God’s love for us is overflowing and we can’t contain it! We want to meet physical and spiritual needs by serving in His love.
This greatest truth, that God loves you and wants to have a relationship with you, is worth sharing! We want every person in our community and around the world to know of God’s gift of forgiveness and an eternal, loving relationship with Him through Jesus’ death on the cross, burial and resurrection. He offers this to you as a gift and desires for you to receive it by believing (faith).
Ephesians 2:8-9″For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.”
