Our Purpose and Mission

Our Purpose

King’s Cross exists to love God, love people and love Cypress.

We believe that Jesus-- through his life, death and resurrection-- is rescuing people from their brokeness and despair, restoring them in the midst of their struggles and doubts, and writing their stories into the big story of God’s redeeming and renewing of everything.

LOVE GOD
Christ’s Gospel - The King’s Grace


We believe that when Christ ministers his kingdom rule through his church, the lives of individual people are transformed by his grace.

We see, celebrate and savor God’s big story in worship.
We pray big prayers.
We demonstrate the generosity of God’s grace.

LOVE PEOPLE
Christ’s Church - The King’s Community


We believe that Christ’s Church is the primary instrument through which he carries out his kingdom mission in the world.

We share our stories of hope, rescue, and restoration.
We admit and embrace messiness and brokenness.
We invite people into God’s big story.

LOVE CYPRESS
Christ’s Kingdom - The King’s Mission


We believe Christ’s kingdom is his powerful rule in the word and deed which brings God’s shalom to all of life.

We listen to the stories of our community.
We respond redemptively toward the brokenness in our community.
We rejoice in the goodness, truth and beauty in our community.
We long to serve and seek the good of Cypress!

 Our mission

“It is not so much that God has a mission for his church in the world, but that God has a church for his mission in the world. Mission was not made for the church; the church was made for mission—God’s mission.”  -C J. Wright

He always has been. He (God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and Holy Spirit) are at work redeeming the entire cosmos through the act of grace , namely the work Jesus has done in his life death and resurrection. This redeeming work extends to broken and hurting people who need new life. Grace brings about human thriving and flourishing in families, communities, culture, the creation, and every sphere of life.

That means we do not exist for ourselves, but for the good of others and our community. As a result of our commitment to God's mission we support ministries and Church Plants locally, regionally and internationally.

This pioneering ministry includes over 70 churches representing over 16,000 members voluntarily coming together to fulfill their vision and mission. In the providence of God, this area is experiencing the kind of growth that calls for increased efforts in the fields that are ready for harvest. This area includes 4 of the 5 fastest growing cities of over a million in population. At the end of 2010, the Network had started or materially assisted in the start of 50 new churches and supported the initiation of 12 new RUF ministries in the Southwest. 

International Ministries

Cogdon Family

Restore Japan Website

Toyosu, Tokyo is one of five major islands in the Tokyo Waterfront area. In a city with one church for every 18,000 people, Toyosu has never had a church of any kind. It is to this area that God has called Joe and Felicity Congdon to join the Tokyo church planting team. Joe Congdon grew up in Houston, Texas and studied at Washington University in St. Louis. It was there while studying Japanese language and culture that God gave Joe a heart for the world. Felicity’s love for unreached peoples began as she spent time with international students while studying at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb. Both Joe and Felicity ministered with Campus Crusade for Christ—Joe in Tokyo and Felicity in Macedonia—and when they met in 2008 they quickly connected through a shared desire to bring the gospel to unreached peoples. They were married in October that same year and worked with Campus Crusade for Christ, while planning and praying for direction about moving overseas. In May 2014 Joe completed his Master of Divinity degree at Covenant Seminary in St. Louis and was ordained at Grace Presbyterian Church in The Woodlands, TX in December. Joe and Felicity have three young children: Zoey, Jonah and Ramona. In early 2015 the family moved to Tokyo where they have been diligently studying Japanese, and pursuing relationships with their neighbors. After worshiping and working with a bilingual church, they will be transitioning to begin an internship at an all-Japanese church.
