"Who, O God, is like you? Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter,
Jesus came to restore life to hurting people - not just spiritually, but in every aspect of life: physically, emotionally, vocationally, relationally, financially, etc. What is more, as Christ restores us, He calls and empowers us to work with Him as He restores life to others.
The Bible says that those whom God restores "will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations." ~ Isaiah 61:3-4
In other words, when Jesus restores us, he doesn't stop there. He then employs us in his mission of restoring our communities and our world.
Here at Crosspoint we call our restoration ministry "Restore Life." And we do this kind of ministry through teams who come alongside struggling members of our community to lovingly serve them in practical and potentially life-changing ways.
Some of our Ministries are listed below. And we are always asking God to raise up more ministries to restore life to our community.
