Who We Are: Our Certain Identity

Jesus never meant for the church he is building to exist for itself, but for the glory of God, for people, for communities, for cities, and for the world.

At Crossway Church, you’ll discover a missional community of passionate Christ followers who love God and love our neighbors as we live out our faith in the Hampton Roads area, inviting people of all races, tribes, tongues and nations to gather, grow, give, and go in a grace-filled community.

As a community of faith on mission for Jesus, we partner with God in his redemptive and restorative work in the world today. We also desire to partner with other life-giving churches to accomplish His purposes.

No single church can do everything to solve the massive global challenges that result from spiritual blindness, but we are committed to doing our part. We reach outside the walls of our fellowship to love and touch people who are far from God.

We are the Church

For us, church is neither a physical building nor an event we attend one day a week but something we are, wherever we are and whenever we are there. When we gather for Sunday worship and to wherever we scatter throughout the week, we are the called out people of God focused on the mission and purpose of Jesus Christ.

We are Crossway

As a local church, we are Crossway because the cross of Jesus Christ is the way to eternal life (John 14:6), the way to the abundant life (Luke 9:23), and the way home to God (Luke 15:11-32).

If this is the kind of church you are seeking, read on about our mission, vision, and strategy.

Why We Exist: Our Clear Mission

We exist to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ who go and make disciples.
