Get To Know Crossway

In "Get to Know Crossway" (G2KC) classes you'll learn all about what we do as a church and why we do it.  We don't want to be slaves to tradition or to pragmatism.  We want to be Biblical.  We want to know what the Bible says our priorities and values should be, and  that will shape the distinctive way we do certain things.

These videos cover all the content of our classes, but without the usual discussion and time for questions.  So use the notes, write down your questions or comments to address when you talk to one of the pastors.

Part 7: Priority of Fellowship   Download Notes

Churches share fellowship meals in fellowship halls—but true fellowship is much more than just eating and talking together. God’s Word informs our understanding of what fellowship is, why we have it, and how to magnify the gospel through fellowship in the church.

Our Core Values

Part 18: Fully Training Disciples for Gospel Ministry Download Notes

In God’s plan, who is responsible to do the work of ministry in the church? Does God expect that local churches will raise up pastors or is that a job for seminaries? We have been equipped with the Scriptures to answer these questions and teach us how to pursue comprehensive discipleship.
