Go therefore and make disciples of all nations
We believe the Gospel must be present in everything we do, so we strive to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of the people we serve through our mission efforts locally and globally. We want to be a church known for ushering in God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. We believe the church is called by God to spread the Gospel throughout the world, and we see the individual call for the followers of Christ to take part in this all over scripture. In Matthew, Jesus commands us to go and make disciples of all the nations. In Romans, Paul reminds the church of this same command: “how then will they call on him in whom they have not heard?” Our prayer is that everyone at Stones Crossing would live on mission in light of who God is and what He has done for them.

The 410 Bridge
The 410 Bridge is a Christ-centered, non-profit organization committed to relentlessly pursuing healthy community development in nations confined by poverty. We see the poor as the solution to poverty and not the problem to be solved. We engage communities to participate in their own development, restoring their sense of dignity, purpose, and freedom. The 410 Bridge works alongside local churches and leadership to assess and leverage their community’s gifts and strengths, not just their needs. Working in conjunction with our partners, we activate a unique, holistic approach that combines Christian discipleship, economic development, quality education, clean water, as well as health and wellness to create lasting freedom from poverty.
