We live through crises of immense magnitude and sometimes feel so insignificant in comparison. We differ from the world in that the Church has true significance and carries answers to so many of the problems around us. We believe, maybe more than ever, that the church must be ready to respond to humanitarian crises, pandemics, and disasters of all kinds.
Jesus really is the only hope for all that is going on and the church is called to display His love and hope in the toughest times! Matthew 24:6-8, "You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains."
Acts of Mercy is the international disaster relief arm of the Antioch Movement and we have an affiliate chapter here at CrossBridge to respond to both local and international disasters. We mobilize believers who are medical professionals and trained first responders to bring prompt, physical, and spiritual care in times of crisis.
With long-term recovery in mind, we partner with the Acts of Mercy Development team in Waco and other chapters across the nation to respond to crises. If you are a medical professional, a first responder, trained in security and logistics, or someone who can be an “all hands on deck” kind of person, we encourage you to prayerfully consider joining our Acts of Mercy chapter at CrossBridge. In-person or online training is provided to get you getting practically and spiritually prepared to respond to disasters all around the world.
