Our Purpose Statement is: Love God, love others and reach the world.
This summarizes everything we do here at CrossPoint Church in one sentence. It's taken from two main passages of Scripture: Matthew 22:36-40, The great Commandment: "Jesus said, `Love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments." Then from the Great Commission we get these things: "Jesus said, `Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."
From the first -- the Great Commandment -- we take Loving God With All Your Heart. That's worship. Also Loving Your Neighbor As Yourself -- that's ministry. From the Great Commission -- Go And Make Disciples -- evangelism; Baptize -- incorporate into fellowship; Teach Them All Things - discipleship.
So we exist for these five reasons.
1. To celebrate God's presence.
2. To demonstrate God's love through ministry.
3. To communicate God's word by evangelism.
4. We exist to incorporate God's people into His family which is fellowship.
5. We exist to educate God's people which is discipleship.
