Crossbridge began when a group of people began to talk about a new church in the Sugar Land/SW Houston area. The longing was to have a church focused on Jesus Christ as revealed in the scriptures, build true community and attract the over-churched and un-churched. September 2002 saw our first public service at Sartartia Middle School. The church was comprised of a young 18-35 crowd. The church quickly grew to 200 people, with a thriving Children’s Ministry, and a second service was added in 2006. The church from the beginning focused on building community, through small groups meeting throughout the week and living on mission through various service projects and outreach events.
During our history, we’ve built strong friendships and grown in our understanding and application of the Gospel. We have seen lives changed through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; people becoming Christians who thought the Bible was myth, marriages being healed and restored, and people growing in their compassion and generosity. The years of challenges and accomplishments have reminded us that what we truly desire is to see lives changed by the Gospel – we as individuals, our church, our community and the world.
In the fall of 2007, we began negotiations to lease 15,000 square feet on Eldridge Rd in Sugar Land. We signed the lease and began retrofitting the facility in late 2008. The building is seen as a mission base to train Christians to live as sent by God to love and lead their world to know Jesus. The building is not our church, we are the church. Our vision is to see the building used to “make growing followers of Jesus Christ”. We look forward to our next chapter as God grows us.
