“- Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation-.”
“For all nations shall come and worship before You -.”
Founded in 1974, the Crossroads Church was once an all-European/Anglo congregation. As the neighborhood changed so did the face(s) of the congregation. More and more people of color began to attend and felt quite at home. Today, we are an intentionally multicultural, multiracial, multiethnic community of believers who seek, together, to honor our God. We are learning from each other. We are being educated about the traditions and cultures of our brothers and sisters. Our commonality is found in our desire to live for Jesus Christ who made us new creatures by His life, death, resurrection, and ascension.
At Crossroads, we celebrate the oneness that can only be ours in Jesus the Christ. If left to ourselves, we might allow our cultural diversity to be an obstacle. Instead, that diversity is an asset. We gather around our common confession that Jesus Christ is our only hope and is our salvation. We envision ourselves like those described in the last book of the bible.
“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb! – Revelation 7:9-10 ESV
People from more than fifteen countries call Crossroads their spiritual home. Our pastor coined a word for a sermon about what we are doing at Crossroads. In a sermon titled, “The Great Rehearsiment”, Dr. Farmer said that what we are engaged in at Crossroads is both a rehearsal for heaven and a grand social experiment (hence, rehearsiment) here in this community. Revelation 5:9 describes a scene around the Lamb on His throne. Those in attendance are “Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation…”
At Crossroads we are rehearsing for that scene and we are showing the community in which we live, that people from diverse backgrounds can live and worship together.
In the atrium of our building, a number of flags hang. They are the flags of the nations represented in our community of faith called Crossroads. Flags are more than pieces of fabric with stars or stripes or geometric shapes or symbols of a country’s uniqueness. Flags identify a group to the rest of the world. If you were lost in a very large international gathering, you would simply look up and find your flag and that would tell you where to go. Click on any of our flags to hear from a native of that land and to hear their Crossroads story.
