Living Real Life With God and Friends
Serving the communities of Elkridge, Ellicott City, Halethorpe, Arbutus, Jessup, Columbia, and Catonsville
Our values are summarized as an acronym based on the word CrossLife and Scripture.
C limate of acceptance (Romans 15:7)
Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
R eal Relationships (Ephesians 4:1-2)
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
O utreach (Matthew 28:18-20)
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
S eeking Sensitive Services (1 Corinthians 9:22-23)
To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.
S imple Structure (1 Corinthians 14:3, 40)
But everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort. (40) But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.
L ife Groups (Acts 2:42-47)
They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
I ntentional Prayer (Acts 3:1)
One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer--at three in the afternoon.
F amily Emphasis (Romans 8:15)
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ""Abba," Father."
E very member a minster (Romans 12:5-6)
so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith.
