Our Purpose

Crossroads Prison Ministries is all about the good news of Jesus. We believe that it is only Jesus who breaks the chains of the prisoner and brings true freedom to all who come to him, regardless of where they are or have been. We also believe that everyone needs to hear this good news, ‘for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.’ (Romans 3:23). Jesus tells those who believe in him to ‘go and make disciples of all people’, including people in prison.

 

Crossroads is uniquely placed to help churches and their members reach those in prison with the good news of Jesus, through teaching and mentoring, pastoral care, and prayer; as we partner with you to mentor and equip prisoners for a life transformed by and for Jesus.

Our Beliefs

The Bible is God's Word: we can rely on it to guide us

The Holy Scriptures as originally given by God are divinely inspired, infallible and entirely trustworthy, and they are the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

Heb. 4:12, Matt. 5:17-18, 2 Tim. 3:16-17, Psa. 119:160

Jesus Christ is our Lord and Saviour

Our Lord Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless human life, divine miracles, vicarious and atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension, mediatorial work, and personal return in power and glory.

1 Cor. 15:3-4, Heb. 7:25-27, John 1:1-4, Rom. 5:6-8, Col. 1:15-20

Salvation is by grace, through faith and not by works

The salvation of lost and sinful humanity is made possible by God’s grace, through faith apart from works, through Christ’s blood shed on the cross, and through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit.

Eph. 2:8-9, Rom. 3:21-28, Rom.5:1-11

We are caller to be unified with all believers

We believe in the unity of the Spirit among all true believers, who are the Church, the Body of Christ.

John 17:20-23, Eph. 4:4-6, 1 Cor. 12:12-26, Gal. 3:26-29

There is one true God, who is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Matt. 3:16-17, Matt. 28:19, John 15:26, 2 Cor. 13:14

The Holy Spirit lives in us, enabling us to follow Christ

The Holy Spirit dwells within all believers, enabling them to live a holy life, to witness and to work for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mark 13:11, Matt. 10:19-20, Luke 12:11-12, Rom. 8:1-17, 1 Cor. 12:4-11, Gal. 5:13-25

The dead will be resurrected

The resurrection of both the saved and the lost will occur when Christ returns. Those that are saved will experience the resurrection of eternal life; those that are lost will experience the resurrection of eternal death.

John 5:28-29, Matt. 25:46, 1 Thes. 4:13-17, 1 Pet. 1:3-5
