Crossroads Community Church
We are a Christian church located in the community of Palo Alto, California striving together to follow Jesus. We believe that our church exists to be a people whose faith in Jesus is lived out not just on Sundays, but also through our work, play, and fullness of life. We invite you to join us on this journey.
Helping people connect with God in daily life by seeking God’s wisdom, sharing life together, and serving people in need.
Posturing ourselves as active learners, we continue to reflect upon the spiritual life through the lens of scripture, tradition, reason, and experience while recognizing that all of these come from God. As we seek to navigate life, we also believe that wisdom must have space to take root and grow in our lives in order to transform our living and faith.
“Guard my teachings as the apple of your eye. Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.” Proverbs 7:2-3
As a community of faith we do our best to embrace the unity given through Christ in the midst of our diversity of thought and life. One of the best ways that we know how follow Jesus is to join together in loving each other and our neighbors as well. Sharing meals, serving our community, working for the good of our city, and more all bind us together in love that points toward Christ.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34
Through the life of Christ and the Christian Scriptures we see a constant concern for those who are marginalized, poor, and/or outcasts from society. We believe that as Christians we are tasked with joining God in bringing about fullness of life and restoration to all people, especially those identified in these groupings.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
