The mission of Crossbridge Church is to honor God by making growing followers of Jesus Christ.


Crossbridge Church, a dynamic church that is part of the Acts 29 network, started with a group of people dreaming about the launch of a new church in the Southwest Houston area, namely Sugar Land. That dream was to have a Christ-centered church that would be able to build true community and attract the over-churched, as well as the un-churched. In September 2002, Crossbridge, along with the original small group of people, saw their dreams become a reality when their first service was held. Over the years, Crossbridge has maintained their vision through continued focus on building community through weekly small groups and “living on mission” through various service projects and outreach events.
