Kingdom Minded. Kingdom People.
King’s Cross Church is a church of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). We were first planted in October of 2012 in the Downtown Flushing Community, as part of Living Faith Community Church, practicing a multi-congregational approach to church planting which enabled our church to be a part of a cooperative community-based church, while having access to resources of a much larger church community.
King’s Cross Church then became a particularized church on March 18th, 2018 with a vision to reach the diverse and vibrant community of Flushing, downtown. We believe God has set us to be a city on a hill, a community of grace and renewal, shining into Flushing. Therefore, we are passionate about reinventing how to live out our historic faith to engage, compel, and welcome outsiders into the kingdom of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
The Gospel tells us that our root sin is not just failing in our obedience to God but relying on our obedience to save us. Therefore the gospel is not just the way to go to heaven, but is the way to address every problem and is a way to grow at every step.
At the center of King’s Cross Church’s vision is to be a community of prayer. A healthy church is both a result of and a means to the dynamics of spiritual renewal, therefore we must be rooted in extraordinary prayer as well as corporate and individual repentance before God.
WORLD AND LIFE VIEW.
The Lordship of Christ over every area of life prevents us from dividing life into secular/public vs. private/sacred realms or into physical/worldly vs. spiritual/church realms.
We will mirror our geographic neighborhood. We will seek to reflect more racial unity than our neighborhood in order to witness to the truth of the Gospel.
We do not just seek our own prosperity, or even the peace of our neighborhood, but the peace and prosperity of the whole city. We will not only have pity or sympathy on our city, but also will respect and learn from it as we show compassion.
We believe that the Gospel alone changes people’s lives and creates a new community which loves and serves each other. And this change occurs as Christians learn to apply the Gospel and share their lives with one another in mutual encouragement in small cell groups.
CHURCH PLANTING MINDED.
We do not consider church planting to be either traumatic or unusual process. Rather, we are always planning and working toward the next daughter church, just as we are always doing other ministries of the church.
