But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8
We were made to look and act like Jesus—wholeheartedly. To live as He lived. Heal as He healed. Free others the way He freed us. But how do we actually move in that direction? How do we get up from an inspiring weekend service to experiencing radical, daily life change, and helping others experience the same?
At Crossroads, we’re throwing our weight behind a discipleship culture. It’s our way of resourcing people (aka potential disciples) to continually grow in their relationship with Jesus, and to take Him into their homes, marriages, neighborhoods, spheres of influence, racquetball courts, everywhere. So, from Huddles to GO Groups to homes, we are pounding the pavement. And we believe that a thriving community of maturing Jesus followers will transform Cincinnati into a landscape of freedom and power.
“The time has come,” [Jesus] said, “The Kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!” Mark 1:15
The weekend experience in the auditorium (or online) will always be our anchor, our hub of inspiration and challenge. But to think we just pop in for Sunday visits with nothing more will shortchange the fullness that Jesus came to offer.
“I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
