Our Mission, Your mission
Representing Christ Through Clothing
Things happen when Christians wear the Word of God.
Every single day, Christians interact with all kinds of people: family, friends, co-workers, others in their communities, even strangers on the street. And with those daily interactions come opportunities to be a bold witness for Christ, as He commanded all believers to be in what is known as the Great Commission: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19). That’s why proclaiming the Scriptures on your clothing for others to see represents a powerful and unique ability to speak to those within your sphere of influence about the lifesaving Gospel message.
In Isaiah 55:11, God says that His Word “will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” The Bible is the living Word of God, and when Christians buy a One Step to the Cross (OSTTC) t-shirt, sweatshirt, or hoodie, they’re not just purchasing quality clothing at an affordable price; they’re providing an outlet for God to work through them, straight into the hearts and lives of those who need to hear His Word and accept Christ as their Savior.
As an online retailer with an evangelical mission to declare the Gospel message, One Step to the Cross works to inspire and encourage Christians everywhere to “wear the Word” and unashamedly take a stand for Christ. It is with true hope and sincere prayer that each and every one of OSTTC's customers shares that exact same mission...and together, we will fulfill the Great Commission, one shirt at a time.
The Evangelistic Ministry of Shawn Lawler
In 2009, One Step to the Cross's President Shawn Lawler felt God directing him to give back to the streets of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, that for years he had helped corrupt with drugs and crime. Like he had once been, people all around him were trapped and dying in the pain and hopelessness of life without Christ. Shawn knew that he had to do all he could to introduce everyone to the Savior who had forever changed his own life. And as he drove up and down the streets of South Philadelphia, searching for people to minister to, an incredible vision was born: a vision for Jesus Christ block parties, a unique evangelistic effort unlike any other ministry.
One Step to the Cross donates $1.50 net proceeds of all sales to Jesus Christ Block Parties. To learn more about the ministry, click below.
