The Vision of CrossRidge Church is to glorify God as fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ as we make disciples of all nations.
Our vision answers 3 important questions:
To glorify God
To become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ
To make disciples of all nations
We desire to help our church family fulfill the Vision God has placed on our hearts. Our strategy is to encourage and sharpen one another in our faith in Christ by making these commitments together.
God is the ultimate giver and as His followers we are called to give. Living is giving in the Christian life. As we give we reap God's blessings. Jesus told us it is better to give than to receive.
We give our lives to God by faith in Jesus Christ. We give God our time, talents and treasures each day as we follow Jesus Christ. We give God our worship and praise as we live our lives for Him. God desires and deserves our praise, honor and glory!
As we live Up we will want to live In. The more we give ourselves to God the more we want to grow in our faith in God. We make the commitment to grow because we want to increase our faith, we want to become more like Christ, we want to know God more and be used by God more. God wants us to grow and God will help us grow as we spend time with Him. We need to grow if we want to glorify God. We need to grow if we want to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We need to grow if we want to make disciples of all nations.
Spiritual growth requires desire and discipline. As we give ourselves to God each day, our desire to grow will increase more and more. We must also discipline ourselves to spend time with God if we want to grow stronger in our faith. We must commit ourselves to the disciplines of Bible study, prayer, fellowship, worship and proclamation if we want to grow a mature and complete faith.
The more we live Up and In the more we will want to live Out! Jesus commanded us to go and make disciples of all nations. We must go and tell people about Jesus Christ! As we go, people come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. As we go, our faith grows. As we go, God's power shows clearly for all to see.
As witnesses for Jesus Christ, we go everywhere. God wants us to go for Him in our homes, in our church, in Little Elm, in all of the communities around us and to the nations. We answer God's call as we go. We fulfill God's vision as we go.
