WHO WE ARE

Welcome to Cross Bridge!

Our Mission

We​ ​are​ ​a​ ​church​ ​in Greater​ ​Boston​ ​that​ ​brings​ ​people​ ​across​ ​all​ ​cultures​ ​together​ ​in​ ​Christ​ ​to​ ​inspire,​ ​disciple,​ ​and send​ ​them​ ​to​ ​be​ ​global​ ​disciple-makers.

We are also a multicultural, Christian congregation and ministry of CBCGB. We welcome and incorporate all people to worship, fellowship and serve  with us, regardless of background.

 

Through our multi-cultural demographic, with many having some Chinese heritage, we provide a unique bridge for diverse groups and special opportunities to serve God, including:

  • People of all races who are interested in cross-cultural experiences or outreach opportunities

  • People with mixed-culture backgrounds

  • First-generation immigrants looking for an English-speaking, Americanized environment

 

We strive to integrate our values, focus, and heritage. As a part of our core values, we are missional and work to advance God's kingdom to all peoples everywhere. Through our multi-cultural heritage, we have special opportunities to serve God, including by:

  • Addressing particular needs of those who have grown up in a mixed-culture environment

  • Providing access to Chinese culture and communities within an American context for people of all backgrounds

  • Providing a spiritual home for the English-speaking children of a multi-generational church with many immigrant families

  • Outreaching to immigrants looking to assimilate into American culture

  • Sending members from our midst to serve people where opportunities are uniquely open to us

Our Values

GOD-CENTERED

God is our creator, redeemer, sanctifier, judge, and glorifier; therefore, we worship, love and serve him.

BIBLICAL

God speaks to us most clearly and reliably in the Bible; therefore, we seek to understand Scripture accurately, and apply it relevantly.

TRANSFORMATIONAL

God forgives our sin through the atoning death of Jesus, and regenerates us through his indwelling Spirit; therefore, we live as redeemed and transformed, turning from sin and pursuing holiness.

COMMUNAL

God calls us not merely to himself, but also to each other in community; therefore, we live together to fulfill God’s calling for us individually and corporately.

MISSIONAL

Christ commissions us to be his ambassadors in the world; therefore, we participate in his mission, through spreading the gospel and helping those in need.
