About Us

CrossBridge STL is a church comprised of individuals from around the St. Louis metro area, across the nation, and around the world. We are a unique blend of cultures, intent on sharing life together through the saving work of Jesus Christ on the cross. This repentant commonality has brought together a community that might seem an odd mixture otherwise – Midwesterners with African immigrants and beyond. CrossBridge STL understands God’s central message to us bridges all boundaries so we may live as the family we were created to be. Simply put, we are better together, by God’s design.

Great Commission:
We intend to continue making disciples in the power God has given us, practicing the holy sacraments, promoting the teaching and practice of God’s commands. (Matt. 28:18-20)

We strive to be a multicultural church community, welcoming local families as well as immigrants. Often American churches have sent missionaries around the world. Today, God is drawing those families to us. We want to grow our diverse fellowship, developing an atmosphere conducive to family growth, as God distributes His Word, and His people. (Acts 1:8; 8:1)

We believe we exist to know and glorify God in all we do. To that end we desire to share life together, encouraging an eternity-minded worldview, knowing God has purposed our pain and joys for us to become Christ-like in our character. We seek to demonstrate the upward call God has placed upon our lives. (1 Cor. 10:31; Phil. 3:7-14)

To live in an abiding love relationship with God, in His service, to the benefit of others. When life reflects a relationship with God, duty becomes desire in obedience to God. (Matt. 22:34-40, 20:25-28)
