We envision a RENEWED camping environment where structures and grounds are modern and attractive. We envision our outreach GROWING and the camp being used by GREATER numbers by supplying buildings and grounds that can support year round activity as well as people of diverse abilities.
The mission of Crossroads United Methodist Camp is to provide a positive Christian environment where people of all ages are encouraged, equipped, and commissioned on their journey of Christ-like holiness. The camp is a natural setting where people experience knowing they belong to God, where they are filled by God, and leave prepared to serve God.
We believe that "an ageless revival for our generation is growing in our hearts. It is for those who went before us and for those who are yet to be born." - (Kris Vallotton, Jesus Culture Newsletter, Oct. 8, 2009)
We believe it is the "community that provides the potential for nurturing human beings into the fullness of their humanity. We believe we have a responsibility to innovate, sponsor, and evaluate new forms of community that will encourage development of the fullest potential in individuals. Primary for us is the gospel understanding that all persons are important—because they are human beings created by God and loved through and by Jesus Christ and not because they have merited significance." - (UMC Social Principles: The Nurturing Community)
We believe "the foundation of Christian living is faith in Christ. Faith is the central loyalty that gives purpose and direction to our lives. Christian faith is grounding our lives in the living God as revealed especially in Jesus the Christ.
Faith does not happen overnight, but rather is a journey. From birth to death we’re growing in faith. There are ups and downs — and sometimes long flat stretches where we seem to be stalled in our journey. But little by little, most of us deepen our relationship with God." - (umc.org "Christian Living")
