Crossing Community Church gathered for the first time on a September Sunday morning in 1977. Just a few were there that day, in a small Wrightstown apartment living room.The first members of the Crossing church family were ordinary people, grateful to God for what He was doing in their lives and deeply desiring to be part of a new, extraordinary local church. This new church would be conservative and evangelical in beliefs and practices, treating the Bible as authoritative and practical, and teaching it regularly. At the same time, it would be a refreshingly positive church - friendly, relevant and alive - a church reaching out with the good news of Jesus Christ to the lower Bucks County community – a community of people who matter a great deal to God.
For about seven years, Crossing met on Sundays at the Yardley Community Centre. Then, in 1985, God enabled this growing church family to acquire the very special historic Newtown property that is now the church’s fourteen-acre campus. A new main meeting facility was built, with much of the work done by the church members themselves. Crossing began holding meetings at the new campus in the spring of 1986.Today, approximately 300 men, women and children comprise Crossing. There are four men on the leadership board, the Council of Elders. The church staff provides leadership for some fifty Crossing ministries. Crossing also supports ten missionaries, including six sent out from the church, who are reaching out with the good news about Jesus Christ to people in other parts of the world.
