Crossroads - GOing Short-Term
GOing We believe the good news of the kingdom is the most important commodity with which the church and the people of God have been entrusted.  So we place great value on engaging the lost. We believe that the church should not expect lost people to come and find us but that we are called and sent to “seek and save that which was lost.” While we understand that our most transforming ministry will take place at our personal street-corner and in our own city, we value the mission of God to reach the whole world.  We assume responsibility for the world, not because we believe we can reach it alone but because we accept the mandate of the great commission and the heart of God to love and sacrifice for the discipleship of the whole world. We accept this apostolic mandate to send and be sent into every part of the world and our place in partnership with the global church.

self-righteousness and self-condemnation.
