We desire to be a people who have awe for God, love for Jesus and are empowered by the Spirit.
We desire to be a people who display Christ from the inside OUT to bring those on the outside IN.
We desire to be a people who hang on every word Jesus said. We want to be rooted, grounded and shaped by these words in all we do.

Loving God and Loving Others
The Crossing is a new church serving Houlton and the surrounding area that opened its doors early in 2019. Our mission comes from something Jesus talked about often: “Loving God and Loving Others”. In fact, in Matthew’s gospel, Jesus called this the Greatest Way to live. Is it really possible to Love God AND Love Others? We believe that it is. In fact, Jesus said it is not only possible, but necessary that these two loves stay together! And in doing so, we fulfill the whole scripture! At The Crossing, that is our mission:
to be a people who Love God and Love Others. Period.
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
