Crossroads Community Church is a non-denominational, Elder-led, Bible-teaching church, whose mission is taken from Colossians 1:28, which we summarize by Know-Grow-Go. We aim to know Christ, grow to be like Christ, and go to serve Christ.
Crossroads started as a small group Bible Study during the summer of 2006, and the first formal services were held in September of 2006 at a local high school. Crossroads moved into an industrial park leased facility in 2008, continued to grow from an initial group of 25-35 to several hundred, and for the past several years has been looking for a larger permanent location. Although it has been problematic to find a building that would meet the needs of our growing church, God has provided our new permanent home in Valencia, CA, which was opened in January of 2018. By God’s grace, we now have a modern 1000-seat worship center and plenty of room for offices, children, youth and adults. God has blessed our church body with continued growth, and our total attendance in three Sunday morning services is now averaging approximately 2000.
Our Core Ministry Philosophy is:
- Depth over Breadth
- God-centered over seeker-centered
- People over Programs
- “The” Kingdom over “A” Kingdom
- Expositional over Topical
- Stand and Serve over Sit and Soak
- Grace and Truth over Grace or Truth
- Equipping over Entertaining
- Whole Life Discipleship over Life Coaching
Valencia, CA is in Los Angeles County and is part of the City of Santa Clarita, which is located about 35 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Santa Clarita was incorporated in December 1987 as the union of four unincorporated communities- Canyon Country, Newhall, Saugus, and Valencia. The four communities retain separate identities, and it is common for residents to refer to a specific neighborhood when asked where they are from. Santa Clarita is annually ranked as one of the top 100 places to live in the United States, as well as one of the safest. The population has roughly doubled over the last twenty years and is made up largely of modern suburban neighborhoods. It is estimated that 10% of Santa Clarita residents regularly attends church, although there are a number of strong Bible-teaching local churches in the area.
The Crossroads Residency Program
Crossroads desires to find a man who will plant an independent, elder-led, non-denominational, Bible-teaching local church within 3-5 years after planting, to be located within an approximate 150-mile radius of Valencia, CA.
