“We’d like you to spend some of your Christmas holiday with us.
We promise not to waste your time. You only have one life. We don’t want
you to waste it—any of it.”
(The Cross Leadership Team: Thabiti Anyabwile, Kevin DeYoung, John Piper, David Platt, Zane Pratt, David Sitton, Mack Stiles)
They state what this exciting new missions conference exists for:
"The global purpose of magnifying the kingly majesty of Jesus Christ.
Our focus is on all the unreached peoples of the world where Jesus is
not worshiped as God and Savior. To that end, CROSS aims to mobilize
students for the most dangerous and loving cause in the universe:
rescuing people from eternal suffering and bringing them into the
everlasting joy of friendship with Jesus. Jesus said that every person
without faith in him, remains under the wrath of God (John 3:36). He
also said that God did not send him 'to condemn the world, but that the
world might be saved through him' (John 3:17). That saving faith is born
through the message of Jesus’ blood and righteousness—his cross.
Everyone who believes is saved. But nobody believes without a messenger.
World missions is the glorious gospel enterprise of going like Christ
into another cultural world to rescue people from eternal suffering, and
renovate their broken lives, that they might render to God the splendor
of his majesty through faith in Christ. There is no better reason to
lose your life and no greater way to live it."
