Make Disciples

Jesus told his disciples to go and make disciples. He gave us the method to model as we make disciples of Jesus today. 

But what is a disciple. Simply put, a disciple is a disciplined learner. One who studies and knows the words, ways, and works of their teacher. One who models their life as an apprentice to their master. This is not something for lightweights but for people who what to devote their lives to the one they are learning from. This is what being a disciple means. One of the most essential things Jesus modeled for us was the importance of being in relationship with each other.

Through relationship we feel the safety and encouragement to mature spiritually. 

In fact we can't be or do anything spiritual effectively outside of relationship.

Whole-Life Disciples

Being made into a disciple of Jesus doesn't happen through a program or a class... no, the way is made by walking... and it isn't an individual sport; it happens through relationships--spiritual friendships, fellowships, community. With that reality in mind we have lots of different ways for you to get engaged in walking with Jesus and his community of disciples. We provide learning experiences for all ages  --kids, youth, college, men & women. These ministries are good entry points to get started. Fellowships are a good way to start to take things deeper. 

The Disciple's Pathway is for those looking for intentional development & mentoring.

Our goal is to make, mature & multiply disciples of Jesus who develop

7 key characteristics--disciples who are (1)called & going; (2)upper-room dwellers; (3)sacramental & relational; (4)responsible; (5)prepared; (6)proclaiming and (7)demonstrating the gospel.

  • Crosspointe Alliance Kids

    Children are precious in the eyes of Jesus. He called for them to come and taught us to have a child-like faith, full of wonder, and trust. As believers, we are called to care for these little ones. One way we do this is by training them up for the way they will go. We are a small but growing church, with lots of kids. We take Jesus' love and teaching of kids as importantly as we do for the adults in our church.

  • Alliance Youth Discipleship

    Middle and High School Students It is our desire to let the youth of Crosspointe and in our neighborhoods know that they matter and provide them with a place where they are welcomed, heard and accepted into a spiritual family that will not judge them. Life with Jesus is more that religious activity, but it is learning to have an unshakable identity and learn who God is and wants to be in their lives through digging into the Scriptures and listening to His voice. We want to respond to the social and spiritual needs of our youth by providing a Youth Fellowship, fun events/activities, and service opportunities that will allow them to express their faith through their own words and actions. We also want to encourage them to use their individual talents and gifts in the community & in society in an effort to nurture their growth as people of faith, so that they may follow the example of Jesus. Please send us an email to find out more information!

Deeper Life

The Deeper Life is all about the Journey taken with the Holy Spirit of Jesus guiding us along the way. It's a life lived for God, with God, and in God. This comes about primarily by deepening (or growing) in relationship with Him. The primary way this happens is in conversation with Him through prayer and the scriptures.  


PRAYER IS THE PRIMARY WORK OF GOD’S PEOPLE!

It seems that the first question we must ask is this: what is prayer? The simple answer is this: prayer is talking with God. We pray when we open our heart to the Almighty. We use our voice, songs, written words, and attitudes in response to what He speaks to us in our hearts and in the Holy Scriptures.

disciples' pathway

the first disciples called themselves the Way. There was a reason for this, the scriptures tell us to follow those who have gone before, particularly following Jesus in the way that has been tread or marked out for us. We follow along this trail that takes us off the main drag that the world is traveling in mass. 


Just maybe there is another WAY that doesn't leave us with empty promises and broken relationships. Just maybe following Jesus invites you to follow along the WAY less traveled... where life everlasting actually exists. Don't be confused and fooled by substitutes or replicas, there is a real, REAL life waiting for you as we walk the pathway others have traveled for centuries. 

equipping & development courses

During this season, we are offering several equipping courses that offer growth in particular areas each year. There will be at least a 1-2 week break between each course. 

  • Sustaining Wholeness

    In the Christian Walk we often talk about stewardship, but in many ways this has become a catch word for giving 10% of your income to the church. It is so much more than just writing checks every month to pay your dues to the church. God has created us to have wholeness--to live FULL lives. But this doesn't happen automatically. Join us in growing in the art of Sustaining Wholeness so that you can be a person that doesn't just survives, but flourishes as a child of God. 


    Offered Next: Sundays from May-June 2020 (10:30AM)

  • When God Speaks

    God is a good Father who wants to have a close relationship with His children. But how do we hear from a God we cannot see or touch? Come learn how to know & respond to the Voice of God and to read the Scriptures for Life Change. 


    Offered Next: Oct-Nov 2019

                                Monday Mornings at 10AM

                                Wednesday Evenings 6:30PM

  • Whole & Healthy Relationships

    One of our biggest needs in our society right now is healthy relationships. But it takes whole people to have these much sought after relationships. Come learn how to take responsibility for your friendships and intimate relationships so that you can live whole and healthy lives. 


    Offered Next: in HOPE Communities Sept-Apr 2020-2021 (1st week of the Month)

  • Financial Freedom

    In an age where inflation and cost of living are constantly increasing, having a good handle on our finances and living free from debt and financial burdens is spoken of again and again in the scriptures. Freedom is as much about being free to live the life we were designed to live as freedom from the things that keep us in bondage to the lies, fears, and expectations placed on us by ourselves, others, and culture. This Course is a good first step to walking in that freedom. 


    Offered Next: Wednesdays April-June 2020 (6:30PM) 

  • Care of  Souls

    Soul Care or Care of Souls is an ancient method of discipleship that deals with the inner life of the person instead of just the behaviors. God tells us He wants us to love Him Heart, Soul & Strength. After we have given Jesus our hearts, he wants our thoughts, our emotions, our will, and personality. This is so we might have abundant lives of meaning & wholeness in freedom. 


    Offered Next: Wednesdays Feb-Apr 2021 (6:30PM)

  • School of Prayer

    Prayer is simple, right? Do I really need a school of prayer? The first Disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. If you've ever wondered where God is, or how to connect with Him, or why your prayers don't seem to be answered, you know there must be more to it than what you've known. We all need to grow into knowing God and speaking to Him. It is both simple and complex like every relationship... 


    Offered Next: Wednesdays June & July 2020 (6:30PM)

  • Roots & Wings: The Enneagram

    One of the best tools we have found for working with the Soul is the Enneagram. It has become a pop-culture fad in the last few years, but its origins date back to the 4th Century Church Fathers. It is more than a personality test, it is a tool for caring for the Soul and returning us to our Essence or Imago Dei (Image of God) to live as our true being in Christ Jesus. 


    Offered Next: Wednesdays from May-June 2021 (6:30PM)

  • Welcome Home to Crosspointe Alliance

When we align ourselves with His purposes for us it make all those questions of meaning & wholeness have a context and the answers He gives us will drown out the uncertainties and insecurities of life.
