Financial Philosophy

Many believe the Bible says money is the root of all evil.

Not true. What it actually says is the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil (1 Timothy 6:10). Well, we don’t “love” it, we just “like it as a friend.” Here’s how finances work at Crossroads:

- Generous people in our community love contributing to the things they see God doing around here. So they give, and we use that money to bless others.

- We base our budget on what we believe God wants, not on what we think we’ll get.

- Money gets spent here, not stashed. People give to Crossroads so we can build into the community, not a mutual fund.
