Purpose

Crossover Global provides support, consulting services, and informational books for evangelistic ministries.

Today Crossover Global works in partnership to help complete the Great Commission throughout the great continent of Eurasia.

Crossover Global has initially targeted the country of Moldova, which lies between Romania and the Ukraine, since it has few full-time missionaries. Crossover Global has the vision of a self-governing, self-supporting, and self-propagating church planting movement in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. To accomplish this vision, Crossover Global has developed the following two-pronged strategy: evangelizing people with the Gospel and equipping people for the Gospel. Crossover Global has launched two major initiatives:

Mission Moldova and Mission Mobilization
Crossover Global operates according to three core values:

(1) Authentic Christian Living (Galatians 5:16-24)
Crossover Global is committed to glorifying God by loving and obeying His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. Crossover Global believes that to live such a life is impossible without the enabling power of His Holy Spirit working in and through our lives.

(2) Biblical Authority (2 Timothy 3:16)
Crossover Global is committed to bringing every aspect of its mission and all aspects of its operation into conformity to the Word of God. Crossover Global believes the Bible is without error and is God's authoritative Word for faith and practice.

(3) World Evangelism (Matthew 28:19-20)
Crossover Global is committed to make Christ's "LAST" command its "FIRST" priority. Crossover Global seeks to fulfill the biblical mandate of the Great Commission by helping to make disciples of all nations.

This organization is a nonprofit. Contributions to it are fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. It is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).


Mission statement

Crossover passionately seeks to glorify God as a catalyst for planting multiplying churches among unreached people of the world.


Statement of faith

Crossover Global uses the following to communicate its faith:

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the written record of his supernatural revelation of Himself to man, absolute in its authority, complete in its revelation on, final in its content and without any error in its teachings (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

All men in their natural state are alienated from God and spiritually dead (Romans 3:23).

Salvation is only by grace, a free gift of Cod, through faith in the Lord Jesus, who died for our sins according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3). Those who thus receive Christ by faith have their sins forgiven (Ephesians 1:7), and become children of God (John 1:12-13).

God is one God who reveals Himself in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:4-6). Jesus Christ, as the Scriptures affirm, is the Son of God and Son of Man. He was born of a virgin and is Himself God. The Scriptures also declare the deity and personalities of the Holy Spirit.

Our Lord Jesus rose from the dead in the same body that was laid to rest in the tomb (John 20:25-27) The bodies of all believers who die will be raised from the dead and they will receive an incorruptible body like unto His glorious body (1 Corinthians 15:53).

Christians, born of the Spirit, are to live the new life in the present power of the Spirit. (Galatians 5:1-25; Colossians 2:6). The Christian's responsibility is to yield himself to God (Romans 6:13), trusting God to keep him.

Christian "living" includes Christian service. In carrying on this work believers need the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit, which is granted to every Christian as he yields and trusts (Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:7; Ephesians 3:20; Acts 5:32). In all of this service, prayer is to have the central place (1 John 14:12-14).

Jesus Christ will come again to earth the second time (Hebrews 9:28), personally (Acts 1:11; Colossians 2:9), and visibly (Matthew 26:24; Revelation 1:7).

History

In June of 1987, while in Singapore attending the Younger Leader's Conference (a conference of young leaders from around the world sponsored by the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization), Bill Jones, after two years of prayer, decided that God was leading him to challenge Christians to complete the Great Commission. Three months later, Crossover Communications International ("CCINT") was founded. CCINT set out to create the vision, impart the skills, and provide the opportunities necessary to mobilize Christians for the evangelization of the world.

After one year, the ministry moved into office space that was provided by a local church in Atlanta. In this new location, CCINT staff specialized in leading conferences, writing materials, and taking teams on short-term mission trips. During this time God provided CCINT with an ever-expanding mission platform. In 1990, at the invitation of Columbia International University, CCINT relocated to Columbia, South Carolina, where Bill Jones (founder of CCINT) joined the CIU faculty to teach evangelism.

In 1994, as a result of significant opportunities overseas, CCINT underwent a paradigm shift. The organization was no longer a North American ministry that also did mission work, but a world-wide mission that also did North American ministry. Today CCI-USA and CCI-Brazil work in partnership to help complete the Great Commission throughout greater Eurasia.
