THROUGH LIVING WATERS AND CROSSCURRENT WE LEARN ABOUT:

 

 

  • God’s powerful love for us and how Jesus is central to our hope for wholeness​
  • The depth of our brokenness and our profound need for Him.
  • The power of the cross to restore our souls, sexuality, and relationships
  • The process of walking out our healing
  • Our place in the church and loving others honorably
 

 

3 FOCUSES OF LIVING WATERS

 

 

Living Waters and CrossCurrent provide a thoughtful and safe place to look at the ways we've become ensnared, and uses three main focuses in our meetings:
 
1. Worship: We focus our attention and praise on God rather than on our problems.
2. Teaching: Our teachings include Biblical truths that help us to know God and ourselves better.
3. Prayer: Through attentive prayer in large and small group settings, we invite the Holy Spirit to heal our various wounds. We bring our sins, and those sins committed against us, to the Lord who is faithful to set us free.
 
We value men and women working out their healing together. Great healing comes as men and women minister and receive alongside one another in worship, teaching, and prayer in the large group (though the small groups are same-sex). This reflects God’s intention and character. Foundational to Living Waters is the reality that God created us in His image as male and female.
