Crossroads is a faith community affiliate with Church of the Master United Methodist Church specifically for college students. Crossroads is an official student organization at Otterbein University.
Our mission is simple. Love God. Grow in Christ. Live to Serve.
We are an inclusive community striving to be the hands and feet of Christ. And although many of us come from different backgrounds, cities and towns, here in this place, we are one.
Our Statement of Faith:
We believe in one God, the creator almighty, the maker of the heavens and the earth, of all people, and all living things. We believe in the profound teachings of Jesus Christ, to love God and to love one another. We believe in God’s grace and gift of eternal life through the death and resurrection of Jesus, God’s son. We believe in the Holy Spirit, who with the creator and the son is adored and glorified and works within each living thing, unites all races, lives in all nations and speaks all languages. We believe in one universal Church, where we carry on the teaching that we are one people, distinct and alike at the same time, male or female, gay or straight, cis or trans, abled or disabled, no matter who we are, where we were born, or what race we are. We believe in the saying “You Be You.” We are all interconnected, loved by God, and held in God’s grace forever. Amen.
What can I expect?
We are a welcoming community where everyone feels a sense of belonging and purpose. We gather on Monday evenings for weekly worship. Our service is casual. Come as you are, not what the world thinks you should be. We celebrate differences. ANYONE is welcome to come and worship.
You are Welcome!
You are Accepted!
You are Loved!
