"Thanks" for visiting our site...

Crossway has as it's main purpose and goal, to provide an environment of love and joy, in which you can begin, nurture and mature in a REAL relationship with Jesus Christ and other fellow believers.

We don't "play church"...and are eager to walk beside you, encourage you, as we endeavor to serve the Lord together. We are REAL people! We are not perfect, but are sincere!

You will know and feel the warm welcome the moment you walk through the doors.

If you are seeking a church home "Crossway" is a nice place to worship, just as Three Rivers is know by the motto of " a nice place to live". Come and see for yourself!

It's no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.

Sermon Notes

The Purpose Of The Church #3


v TO GLORIFY GOD – to Magnify, Worship, to Praise, to Exalt, to Extol.  

                                        Psalm 9:1,2

v TO PURIFY ITSELF    -      2 Corinthians 7:1

v TO EVANGELIZE THE WORLD.  Matthew 9:37,38

The 20/20 vision.

Acts 20:20 yet I never shrank from telling you the truth, either publicly or in your homes. This is where evangelism takes place - among the people.

Certain distinct patterns of sharing your Christian life emerge from these the scriptures.

v Continued. Acts 5:42. The early Christians were a persistent people. Refusing to relent, they were committed. Single minded. Their experience was life changing.

v Daily Acts 2:46. Consistent People. These were no Sunday only Christians. Their walk in Christ Jesus was a continued and consistent walk. Their worship was a daily activity.   

v One accord Acts 2:46 United People.  This is what is needed in today’s churches. People that put their pettiness aside, put their grumbling and dissatisfaction aside and have one thing in heart and mind and that is to bring in the harvest. Depopulate hell and populate heaven.

v Temple Acts 2:46Loyal People – corporate fellowship – church attendance

v Acts 2:46Breaking Bread -  a loving people – these believers demonstrated their love beyond the walls of the church by breaking bread, having communion in homes with fellow believers.

v Acts 2:46 House to House a concerned peoplethese believers took the commission that Christ gave seriously and went from house to house. We can do neighborhood evangelism. If you live in a park, make it your goal to speak with everyone in your park about the goodness of the Lord. This scripture also shows how concerned they were about the future of others. They also wanted the people to have what they had; forgiveness of sins, joy, happiness, peace within and with God.

The early church cared, they were a concerned people.

v Acts 2:46 Gladness these folk were a happy people. Gods people are happy people and happy people shine. Listen, regardless of the fact that there is so much sorrow, people experiencing difficulties. It is a proven fact that in the midst of difficulties that when you sing to God the burden is lifted.

Example, I shall not be moved, just like tree planted by the waterside, I shall not be moved.

Look at the climate that revealed the true spirit of these early Christians. They were being persecuted, yet they continued in an atmosphere of gladness.

Focus on the problem leads to depression. Focus on he who is able to solve the problem leads to hope, gladness and confidence.


You either live with hope or in fear - Fear = False Evidence Appearing Real.

v Acts 2:46 Singleness of Heart /Generousa Steadfast Peoplethis is what is needed to proof to the world that Christianity is real.

    A people that are not easily moved by doctrine. People that are not touchy, moody but are steadfast, consistent in their walk with God.

The church needs people that have the attitude, wherever I am I desire to serve him in whatever capacity and whatever needs to be done, count on me.

These believers were firm in their convictions.

The early Christians were persistent, consistent. united, loyal, loving. concerned, happy, steadfast
