At Crossroads, we attempt to be faithful to the Text as it pertains to God’s instruction on church structure by applying an “elder-led, non-denominational” leadership model. This means that, independent of any larger organization, our elder board seeks God in prayer and humility to oversee the body and apply God’s Word to the functions of the church. We believe the Bible highlights a plurality of male elders governing individual New Testament churches (Acts 14:23; Acts 20:28; Titus 1:5; Philippians 1:1). According to Scripture, elders are called to be humble, loving, servants watching over the local church, thus offering their individual gifts and shared counsel to the body in order to lead wisely (Proverbs 12:15; Proverbs 15:22; Proverbs 19:20; Proverbs 24:6). Although God chooses imperfect men to lead His Church, we believe it is ultimately the perfect Spirit of Jesus Christ who equips and leads them.
