Mission

CrossLife Ministries is a nonprofit Christ-centered ministry offering weekly fellowship gatherings, personal counseling, leadership training, and worldwide mission opportunities. Our teaching is based on Galatians 2:20: "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me..." We exist to minister to people from all walks of life, helping them to discover who they are in Christ, how to experience the abundant life Jesus promised (John 10:10b), and how to interact and share with others in the "fellowship of the faith" of the Christian assembly. We desire to see Christian people come to know the living Lord Jesus as Savior, Lord and Life (Matthew 28:19b), and see them function in the Christian community by loving and encouraging one another in the Spirit.

Training and Education Programs

rossLife offers educational and training seminars and classes that build up individual, couples and families. The training equips attendees to give up control without giving up. We are confused about what our responsibilities are and often are driven to meet the expectations and needs of others. This becomes a burden.

The purpose of our educational classes is to introduce and expose attendees to the message of grace. We all need to know how to function in the midst of life’s busyness and stress. Our teaching is not just another step-by-step program that teaches behavioral modification, but a life-transforming experience empowered by the indwelling presence of Christ as Life.

Adults

The heart of CrossLife missions abroad is training believers to minister the good news of Jesus Christ and equipping them to impact their world understanding that Christ is their Life!

CrossLife is a cross-denominational ministry that serves individual and churches, and travels internationally training pastors and Christian leaders who in turn train disciples in their own churches and communities. CrossLife goes to the nations by answering the call of God and responds to the needs of people around the globe. This effort is multiplied through partnering with various mission agencies to reach the "fields white unto harvest."

CrossLife offers personal discipleship counseling, which is set apart from other approaches in that our emphasis is on the finished work of Christ. We do not teach the individual how to try harder (with God's help), how to change himself, or how to improve their self-image. Rather, we help individuals discover "Christ as their life," which is: "Christ in you, the hope of glory"! God never intended for His children to try to figure life out or "do the best they can". Paul said, "For me, to live is Christ", more clearly stated, "For me, to live, is for Christ to live out His life through me! That is life as God intended!

Biblical, Christ-centered, healthy counseling or therapy should always cause one to walk away more Christ conscious (in awe and in worship of Him) rather than self-conscious (soulically conscious or emotionally conscious). The problem is that a person can become much more in touch with the soul rather than the spirit.

It is vitally important to “listen under” (the meaning of New Testament – “obedience”) the Spirit of Christ and what He is saying. Nothing should substitute for “hearing the voice of God” and walking by faith.

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
