Crossroads Alliance has been organized to operate exclusively for religious and charitable purposes, including but not limited to the following:

  • To immediately respond to victims of disasters both in the United States and in other parts of the world, by providing hope and relief supplies. We respond to natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, fires, volcanic eruptions, as well as to man-made disasters.
  • To provide logistical supply lines both in the United States and in other parts of the world by shipping items such as food, food supplements, medicines, medical equipment, school supplies, and other similar items – with particular attention focused on children.
  • To host church and youth groups, as well as individuals on missions trips within the various countries that we serve.

We believe in the inspired Word of God as a guide for faith and practice.We believe in the One true God revealed in three persons.

We believe Jesus Christ is eternally existent with the Father and is revealed to man in history.

We believe man willingly chose to rebel against his Creator making an entrance for sin in the human condition.

We believe there is an answer to the sin problem of man which is the salvation of God provided by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We believe that every person regardless of ethnic identity or nationality may have forgiveness of sins and a relationship with God by faith.

We believe redeemed people can live in harmony with each other and have an impact in their communities with the help of the Holy Spirit.

We believe we have a mission and destiny in the world to help people know that God, the Father, loves them and wants to change their social condition.

We believe in God’s concern for the poor and that He will bless those who care for them accordingly.

CHARACTER We believe who we are is more important than our image.

INTEGRITY  We believe honesty and transparency are their own best reward.

PURPOSE  We believe our destiny is to holistically help adults and children find their place in the plan of God.

SERVICE  We believe we are debtors to all and desire to give of ourselves freely.

COMMUNITY  We believe there is healing, security and joy for people committed to live together in God’s harmony.

HOPE  We believe in a better world and want to share it with the hopeless.

CREATIVITY  We believe possibilities and solutions are given to those who explore with an open mind.

TEAMWORK  We believe what we achieve together is more than what we can do individually.

GENEROSITY  We believe in an abundant creation and it is more blessed to give than receive.

RESPECT  We believe all people regardless of age, position in life, or ethnic identity are made in the image of God.

CAM is committed to serving a wide variety of people in diverse cultural and economic settings who suffer emotional, spiritual, and physical needs which result from conditions beyond their personal control.

Recognizing this diversity of conditions, Crossroads Alliance & Ministries will respect the cultural and religious preferences of the people and countries wherein the Organization assists, and the Organization will never use religious persuasion or profession of faith as a factor in distribution of aid to needy people.

Furthermore, the Organization will not promote religion at the public expense by using government funds or government financed goods or services to promote sectarian purposes.

Crossroads Alliance and Ministries is a faith-based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization centered in Ocala, Florida. CAM is supported by the gifts of individuals, churches and organizations. All contributions are tax-deductible.
