Mission statement

Crossworld is a global mission agency, a formative community of disciple-makers from all professions bringing God's love to life in the world's least-reached marketplaces.

Statement of faith

Our understanding of God's Word drives everything we do. Here's what we believe - the truth upon which our mission stands.

Scripture We believe in the divine inspiration, truthfulness, and authority of the original sixty-six books of the Bible as God's inerrant written word, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

God We believe in one God, the creator and sustainer of all things, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, that he has existed eternally as the unique Son of God, that he became incarnate when he was born of the Virgin Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit, and that today he remains true God and true man. He lived a sinless life on earth, died, was buried, rose again, and ascended to the right hand of the Father. We believe in his imminent, personal, and visible return in power and glory.

Holy Spirit We believe in the regenerating, indwelling, sealing, and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit, who baptizes all believers into the body of Christ and distributes spiritual gifts to each believer as he wills for the edification of the Church.

Angels We believe in the existence of angelic beings, including the personal existence of Satan and his demonic hosts of fallen angels. Though we wrestle with principalities and powers in ministry, victory is assured by Christ's death and resurrection.

Humanity We believe that God created man and woman in his image and that, after being tempted by Satan, they sinned, thereby incurring not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. We believe in consequence that every human being is born a sinner, unwilling and unable to please God, and therefore we believe in the absolute necessity of the new birth for each individual's salvation.

Salvation We believe in the necessity of the substitutionary atoning death of Christ and that all who trust in him are justified by grace on the basis of His shed blood and, therefore, have the assurance of their eternal salvation.

Sanctification We believe that the process of sanctification begins at the moment of new birth, resulting in the believer's growing capacity for holiness, but not eradicating the capacity for sin. Identification with Christ's death and resurrection as well as dependence upon the Holy Spirit's power enables the believer to experience victory over sin.

Church We believe in one universal Church, embracing all who are united to Christ by saving faith and divine grace, and its expression in local disciple-making communities of faith centered on Christ and the gospel. Two ordinances are enjoined by Christ upon all believers: baptism and the Lord's Supper.

Eternity We believe in Christ's imminent appearing to take to himself the church as his bride, and in his personal return in triumph to the earth to establish His kingdom reign of peace and righteousness. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost.

Service We believe that the commission of our Lord Jesus Christ to go and make disciples of all nations is the responsibility of all believers, and that the development of disciple-making communities among all peoples is the essence of Jesus' command to the Church. We believe in the will, power, and providence of God to meet every need of those who serve him.
