Our Gospel Partnership course is designed to be the first point of connection for those considering CrossPointe Coast as their church home. The purpose of this course is to explain what it is to be a Christian, to equip you to live a gospel-centered life, and to show how that fleshes out with CrossPointe.
Though this course is necessary for partnership, you are not obligated to partner with us. We invite you to participate in this course (1) as a means of growing in your understanding of the gospel and (2) to discern if you want to partner CrossPointe Coast as your church home.
Paul wrote these words to the Philippians: “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:4-6)
Church participation, in recent years, has been drastically reduced to religious consumerism, instead of a called-out people who, being radically transformed by the gospel, live their lives deeply committed to being an integral part of the body of Christ. The result is that the local church becomes impotent to effect the change that is so desperately needed in our communities. Our Gospel Partnership course is designed so that you would not simply join the church, but that you would be the church. That is why we use the language of partnership.
It is our hope that God would work both in and through you as you consider partnering with CrossPointe Coast.
CROSSPOINTE PARTNERSHIP PROCESS
The elders of CrossPointe believe the Scriptures take seriously (1) the call for Christians to partner with a local church and (2) the call for the local church to care for Christians. We consider it a privilege and find great joy in following Jesus and caring for His church.
“Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping a watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning for that would be of no advantage to you.” (Hebrews 13:17)
Toward this end, we have set up the following process as a means to best equip and care for those who desire to partner with CrossPointe Coast. All who desire to partner with CrossPointe will need to:
- Read through the material in this book.
- Attend Gospel Partnership course.
- Meet with an elder or Community Group leader for a Partnership Conversation.
- Complete the Partnership Covenant.
We're excited that you're considering partnership with CrossPointe Coast, as we seek to point our community to Jesus.
