The Cross Tower church is motivated to carry out the two basic commands of the first century church as stated in Matthew 22:36-39, "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’" We strive to form our ministries around these purposes as we reach up to God, reach in to encourage the body of believers, and reach out to serve those in need in our community and around the world.

Genuine worship (reach up) and good Bible study (reach in) create within us a desire to serve others (reach out). This is the outward focus that makes us the “salt of the earth” and the “light of the world.” Jesus said, “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:13-16).
