The Downtown Church was a church located in what it called, "the warehouse", a red-painted former auto service center at 300 24th Street South. There were four pastors leading the church: Keith Best, Rodney Calfee, Andrew Jenkins and Brandon Reeder. The service style was contemporary, with music led by a multi-piece band.

Founded in 2000 by Andrew Jenkins, it was initially known as Ecclesia and met in the Pickwick Hotel in Five Points South. In 2004 it moved to 24th Street South and adopted the name Crossroads Community Church.

The church held regular Sunday services with scriptural lessons as well as Wednesday evening prayer services. In addition, numerous meetings are held at member's homes. The church also offers classes in parenting, sewing, budgeting and other life skills. The downtown warehouse includes a prayer room accessible by key-code 24 hours a day.

In November 2007 the Downtown Church organized a restoration of the mural painted alongside University Boulevard in front of the Southtown housing project.

The church later closed and the property sold in 2012.
