We are a community centered on the Cross of Jesus Christ. It is a symbol of shame to some and foolishness to others. But to us it is the centerpiece of our identity as followers of Jesus. Through the Cross God reconciled a broken world to himself. And because of the Cross, we have a ministry of reconciliation, building a community that crosses socio-economic, racial, and cultural barriers. This means we will seek to cross the street as well as cross the globe to faithfully proclaim the cross of Christ. (1 Cor 15:3 Delivering that which is of first importance: that Christ died for sin according to Scripture and was raised on the third day.)
To see lives transformed and brought into relationship with Jesus and with one another, thereby renewing the spiritual and social fabric of Rockville and the broader community through the cross of Jesus Christ.
Raising up followers of Jesus and creating a diverse community pursuing Kingdom righteousness and peace.
We believe there is a need as well as the desire for wholeness, authentic living, and personal connection. In the search for meaning and truth, we believe God has called Cross Community Church to help build a culturally diverse, gospel-driven community in Rockville, Maryland.
We seek to build a church, a community created by the gospel of Jesus Christ and faithful to proclaim the good news of salvation as well as to live it out and bear witness to the world around us.
We envision a church that is fully engaged with the relevant issues and needs of the city and is actively participating in creating and improving its culture in such areas as the arts, commerce, education, youth and family, social and political dialogue, and spirituality.
We intend to be a safe place where diverse people can deepen their relationship with God and with each other, and pursue personal growth as those created in God’s image. We see Cross Community being actively engaged in leading the gospel cause for reconciliation (with both God and man) and the revitalization of the community.
Our vision is to raise up followers of Jesus and create a diverse community pursuing Kingdom righteousness and peace.
