We serve people towards and connect people to Jesus by expanding our kingdom impact in our communities and beyond by being a multi-generational, multi-ethnic church focused on making disciples of the next generation–our kids and grandkids.
We are young, old, married, single, divorced, rich, and poor. We have three physical locations: Crossroads Community Center in Northglenn (our original church established in 1961), Crossroads Church in Thornton (established in 2007) and one in Ft. Lupton (merged in 2012 with First Baptist Church (est. 1921). Colorado is one of the least “churched” states in the nation, so with God’s direction, we are working hard to reach those who are far from God with the good news of Jesus’ love for them, and bring them into the fold as disciples of Jesus.
Our foundation is the Bible, our leader is Jesus, and our purpose is to serve people toward and connect people with Him. Serving is at the core of who we are, because serving creates receptivity, inspires community, and reinforces identity. As we serve people, hearts become receptive to the Gospel, community is inspired among us, and we identify with the servant heart of Jesus.
We gather together every week to celebrate and refocus our hearts and minds on God. We don’t dress to impress or attempt to entertain. We worship Jesus as authentically as we know how. We pray, sing, read the Bible, give, and serve others inside and outside of the church building in order to bring the good news of Jesus’ Kingdom to anyone who will listen. We gather in smaller Community Groups throughout the week so that we can have authentic connection with like-minded people as we grow in faith and navigate the trials and triumphs of this life. That’s who we are.
