Those opening words of the Reverend Charles Simeon in 1815 capture perfectly the heart, goal, and
vision of CROSSTV! My brothers and sisters in Christ, we at CROSSTV are under no delusion that “true, heart religion” is in any real danger of
becoming “too popular”. Yet we stand in awe of the amazing work God is doing in the hearts of His “faithful remnant, all over, everywhere”! That’s
why this ministry is something INFINITELY MORE than mere “television programming”. CROSSTV is an instrument through which (we pray) our Lord
will unite … edify … equip … rally … strengthen … encourage … and inform … the thousands of like-minded Christians who (like Rev. Simeon) have been
(or are willing to!) fight in the fore-front of the “battle” for “true, heart religion” (recognizing, as we do, that such authentic Christianity
will never be “popular” with the world and/or superficial church … but with an equal acknowledgement that authentic Christianity thrives in supernatural,
aweinspiring ways amongst God’s faithful remnant in a manner that is truly even MORE miraculous!)
In fact, one of the most common themes we often hear from our CROSSTV viewers (as they write-in
to express their joy and satisfaction with the Word of God as it’s delivered in Spirit and Truth, by God’s grace, through Word Pictures) is their frustration
and/or disappointment with the superficiality, carnality and unbiblical nature of the modern church! Often we’ll receive (by the hundreds) emails
that express the inability of viewers to find a “good local church” that “preaches sound doctrine” in a way that is true to Scripture, and “spiritually
alive and vibrant”! And inevitably such viewers share a sense of sadness and isolation, desiring with all their hearts the opportunity to fellowship
with, and co-labor amongst, other serious, devoted, committed and sincere believers (sometimes feeling as though they are “alone”, in many respects,
in their walk with the Lord, and commitment to His Truth)!
But to such disheartened, genuine Christians … I say to YOU what the Apostle Paul said to the ROMAN
Christians, in Romans Chapter 11:
“God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don't you know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah--how he appealed to God against Israel:
"Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me"? And what was God's answer
to him? "I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal." So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by
grace.” (Rom 11:2-5)
And it is (in part) the purpose of CROSSTV to bind together that “faithful remnant” in OUR day, through:
So let me just encourage you
to “dig in” to this web-site and the resources it offers! And let the timeless
truths, encouragements and admonitions, that it leads you to sink deep
into your soul! But as you do … (please!) … be reminded of this:
Godly and inspirational teachings!
Trustworthy books, DVD’s, CD’s
and other resources!
Special ministry projects that
we can co-labor on together!
A special bonding and uniting
of like minded believers!
Moral and biblical clarity on
important social, political and contemporary issues!
… and a diverse array of articles,
communication tools, projects and resources …
… that (we trust) will encourage
and strengthen YOU, and advance the Kingdom of Christ, in ways and amounts
that we simply COULD not do APART from one another!
In fact … (together) … I am
confident God will use this ministry and its viewers to bind together His
people, and to affect this world for Christ in ways that are beyond what
we can ask, or imagine!
ALL over this country and the
WORLD God has reserved for Himself a faithful remnant of sincere, dedicated,
genuine believers in OUR day as well! And so … (like Elijah in HIS day)
… YOU ARE NOT ALONE! So be encouraged!
