Roots are the portions of a plant that are typically unseen, yet they have one of the most important functions for life, growth and health. The Crossing Church invites you to join them in the month of January as they talk about the roots of our faith. When we talk about roots, we speak about the vital origin that establishes a footing and then provides integrity for future growth. In other words, roots provide both the beginning and the nourishment that sustains.

Ephesians 3:17-19 says, “So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge.”

Come learn more about the roots of faith – what it means to believe, why it makes a difference, and how to better understand the church, God, and the love of Jesus Christ.

Colossians 2:6-7 tells us, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.”

Everyone is rooted in something, where are you planted and where do your roots grow? It is important for us all to know the roots of our faith (and we all have faith in something). You came from somewhere, you were given life by something, you exist for a reason, and you do have a future. Why does any of this matter and what does it mean for you personally and for the friends and family that your life touches?
