Our Story

Crossroads Church of Staten Island is a Contemporary Christian Church, striving to provide a loving experience for each person. We try to take a casual approach to “church stuff,” but encourage our people to pursue God with a serious faith. This approach is not the only one a church can have but it does work well for us here on Staten Island.

Crossroads Community Church was founded on September 29, 2002 starting with the commitment of a dozen people and an American Legion Post Commander that allowed us to begin weekly services at his facility. After experiencing some growth, the church began to hold multi-services but quickly outgrew the friendly atmosphere of the Cespino Russo American Legion Post. After several moves to schools and a military base, Crossroads Church moved into our current home, The Lane Theater, a landmarked movie theater which opened in 1938. The Lane Theater is located on New Dorp Lane, which was once referred to as the “Crossroads” of Staten Island. Our story is not finished, and we’d love for you to be a part of what God has in store for all of us.
