The purpose of The Crux is to make an invitation for participants to make Jesus Christ the center of their lives. The title of this study comes from the Latin word crux which means “cross.” It follows the example of St. Paul, “to preach Christ crucified” so that others may come to know the love that God has for us (1 Corinthians 1:23). The word crux today also refers to a place of decision or turning point. We want this study to be an experience where the participants can gaze upon the cross of Jesus Christ and come to a decision about Him in their own lives.
The study is to be completed in five to six weeks. After that, the group would transition to the Story of Salvation or another study of choice.
