CrossBridge Church of Christ began on July 2, 1998, when fifteen families met in the living room of Jack and Connie Kemph. In March 2000, the church purchased 24 acres of land on Brook Highland Parkway for the church's permanent location. Ground was broken for the first phase of the new facility in February of 2004 and the first service was held in September of that same year.
CrossBridge - The Name
The name "CrossBridge" philosophically captures the core vision and values of its participants who understand that the Cross of Christ forms a bridge from a broken world of sin, despair, and indifference to God's much-needed grace, hope, and love. The name is to be a constant reminder to its members that they have received these transformational gifts from God, and that they, therefore, are to be instruments of these divine gifts to others.
Vision and Values
We believe that "God is calling and the Holy Spirit is empowering CrossBridge to change our world through Jesus Christ by making disciples who love one another in community." We distill this mouthful of words into these, accessible terms: we are about LOVE.CHANG.TOGETHER.IN CHRIST.
