T.E.A.M. Partnership
Membership at CROSSROADS CHURCH is an important step on the journey to becoming a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ.

CROSSROADS CHURCH exists to be a church that focuses on reaching the unchurched and/or discipling the believers.  Our mission statement reflects our goal “to reach out in love and acceptance so that all may become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.”  As we grow as a church, we will build buildings, add programs and attract more and more people who do not feel accepted at other traditional church settings.
 
The main responsibility of every church member is to simply follow Christ. Jesus stated in Matthew 22:37-39, “To love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and all your mind … and your neighbor as yourself.” At CROSSROADS we use the acronym, T.E.A.M. to help us identify some basic responsibilities of membership. 
 
Time

Time is a precious commodity. Dedication of time and participation is the mark of a true disciple.  It is the responsibility of every member to spend time with God and the community of Christ. Time spent in private devotion with God is important for a committed disciple. It is expected that persons will participate in a small group of Christian disciples that help one another grow.  We also expect participation in Sunday Worship and Servant Community Worship where the body of Christ gathers.

Evangelism
Evangelism is simply understanding the gospel and sharing it with others.  The central purpose of God’s revelation in Scripture is to call all people into fellowship with Him. It is the role of all Christians to have a personal faith relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  Sharing one’s faith with others is an indicator of Christian maturity. Each of us is given differing gifts and evangelizes best by using the gifts we’ve been given.  Some will evangelize by serving, others by teaching and a few by confronting or preaching. 
 
We understand that evangelism best works through relationships built over time. We provide the class “BECOMING A CONTAGIOUS CHRISTIAN” to help persons understand their evangelism gift and learn how to lead others to Christ.
Abilities

Understanding one’s spiritual giftedness and sharing that giftedness with the body of Christ is a key indicator of spiritual maturity. We provide the class “NETWORK” to help persons explore their ministry passions, spiritual gifts, and personal style, so they can best understand where to serve in the body of Christ.  Our goal is to put the right people, in the right places, for the right reason. We understand that service is for a lifetime, although a person may have changes in availability or passion that would cause them to serve in a variety of areas throughout their lifetime of Christian service.

Money

Honoring God with one’s material resources and supporting the church, using the Biblical precedent of the tithe as a goal, is a mark of a Christian disciple.  In Old Testament times, God’s people were required to contribute at least a tenth of their income to God’s work (the tithe). The New Testament uses the tithe as a starting point for Christian giving and allows Christians to keep the portion of their income that is necessary to provide for them and their dependents. We expect persons to work toward a tithe and to give generously out of love and not guilt.
