Church or Org Description
Crossroads Christian Church is a different kind of church. It is made up of normal and simultaneously amazing people. There isn’t an emphasis on rituals and traditions at Crossroads. Instead, the approach is informal and relaxed.
Crossroads wants you to feel welcome and at home. As our guests we want you to know that we are glad that you are here, and we want you to make yourself comfortable in a casual atmosphere. Crossroads wants to see many hundreds of men, women, and children in the city of Shawnee and across the greater Kansas City area be transformed into disciples and voices for Jesus Christ.
Crossroads is part of the independent Christian Church with roots in the Restoration Movement. Crossroads would abide by the following principle: “We are not the only Christians, but we are Christians only.”
Crossroads also believes there are essentials and non-essentials when it comes to community. There are things we must agree upon (essentials) and there are things we can disagree on and still all go to heaven (non-essentials).
