Welcome

Crossroads Church exists to bring glory to God by making a positive difference in the lives of people!
We realize that there are many different views of church and of God. We are here to help people see God for whom and what He really is. We understand that visiting a new church can be an intimidating thing. With that in mind, we have done everything we can think of to make your time with us as easy and comfortable as possible.

Our Mission is quite simple, we want to change our world by developing
Christ-followers who love God and love people.

Our Values

Our values are what motivate us to do what we do.

Commitment to Scripture

Whether in a Sunday morning service or an evening Life Group, we place a high value on the Word of God. Are you hungry for God’s Word? Do you desire to know God’s will for your life?  Then, get into God’s Word today. Join with the Psalmist in saying: “Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”  Psalm 119:105

Culture of Prayer

Our church is committed to integrating prayer into every aspect of our ministry. Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to Me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” We humbly realize our dependence upon the Lord.

Lifestyle of Worship

Any time the word “worship” is mentioned in Christian circles, the first thing that comes to the minds of most believers is “music” – the praise and worship songs we sing on Sunday mornings. While it is true that we can find great joy in worshipping God through music, the very act of worship is not to be limited to a song or a series of songs on Sunday morning. True worship of God is to be reflected in our lifestyle  in every moment… in every decision…in every relationship.

Matthew 22:37 says, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” “All” is not limited to Sunday mornings – “all” is everything we have, every moment we are given and in every situation that God brings into our path. What a responsibility! At Crossroads, we are asking God to create a desire within all of us to honor, glorify and praise God through our lives.

Connection to Community

We were never supposed to live the Christian life alone. We are to “bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2) We value each member’s commitment to loving and serving each other. Yes, we do this on Sunday morning, but we also strive to support each other during the week.

One of the best ways to experience this type of community is to be connected to a Life Group. These small groups meet on Sunday mornings as well as during the week in homes of our members. These groups allow you to develop authentic, deep relationships that encourage you, as you are an encouragement to others.

Heart for Serving

Built upon the principles in John 13, Acts 2 and Ephesians 2 & 4, we are to serve one another in the body of Christ. Jesus commanded us to love one another. One of the most practical ways we can truly love our brothers and sisters in Christ is to serve each other using the spiritual gifts that God has given to us.

What is your spiritual gift? How are you using it in our local church to serve fellow church members? If you have not yet discovered your spiritual gift or are looking for areas where you can share your gift, visit our Connect class. Let’s all commit to serving each other as Christ has commanded us to do.

Passion for sharing

What God has done in our lives doesn’t stop with a personal decision. We will take what Jesus has done and share it. We are committed to telling the world that only Jesus saves. Life so the full now and forever is found in Him.

Our Beliefs

Our doctrinal statement includes all of our beliefs, and views. If you have any questions, we would love to talk with you. Or please join us on the last Sunday of the Month in the auditorium for Discover Crossroads; a time of questions, community and answers.

We affirm our belief in one God, infinite Spirit, creator, and sustainer of all things, who exists eternally in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three are one in essence but distinct in person and function.

We affirm that the Father is the first person of the Trinity and the source of all that God is and does. From Him the Son is eternally generated and from Them the Spirit eternally proceeds. He is the designer of creation, the speaker of revelation, the author of redemption, and the sovereign of history.

We affirm that the Lord Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity. Eternally begotten from the Father, He is God. He was conceived by the Virgin Mary through a miracle of the Holy Spirit. He lives forever as perfect God and perfect man: two distinct natures inseparably united in one person.

We affirm that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, proceeding from the Father and Son and equal in deity. He is the giver of all life, active in the creating and ordering of the universe: He is the agent of inspiration and the new birth; He restrains sin and Satan; and He indwells and sanctifies all believers.

We affirm that all things were created by God. Angels were created as ministering agents, though some, under the leadership of Satan, fell from their sinless state to become agents of evil. The universe was created in six historical days and is continuously sustained by God; thus it both reflects His glory and reveals His truth. Human beings were directly created, not evolved, in the very image of God. As reasoning moral agents, they are responsible under God for understanding and governing themselves and the world.

We affirm that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, though written by men, was supernaturally inspired by God so that all its words are the written true revelation of God, it is therefore inerrant in the originals and authoritative in all matters. It is to be understood by all through the illumination of the Holy Spirit, its meaning determined by the historical, grammatical, and literary use of the author’s language, comparing Scripture with Scripture.

We affirm that Adam, the first man, willfully disobeyed God, bringing sin and death into the world. As a result, all persons are sinners from conception, which is evidenced in their willful acts of sin; and they are therefore subject to eternal punishment, under the just condemnation of a holy God.

We affirm that Jesus Christ offered Himself as a sacrifice by the appointment of the Father. He fulfilled the demands of God by His obedient life, died on the cross in full substitution and payment for the sins of all, was buried, and on the third day He arose physically and bodily from the dead. He ascended into heaven where He now intercedes for all believers.

We affirm that each person can be saved only through the work of Jesus Christ, through repentance of sin and by faith alone in Him as Savior. The believer is declared righteous, born again by the Holy Spirit, turned from sin, and assured of heaven.

We affirm that the Holy Spirit indwells all who are born again; conforming them to the likeness of Jesus Christ. This is a process completed only in Heaven. Every believer is responsible to live in obedience to the Word of God in separation from sin.

We affirm that a church is a local assembly of baptized believers, under the discipline of the Word of God and the lordship of Christ, organized to carry out the commission to evangelize, to teach, and to administer the ordinances of believer’s baptism and the Lord ’s Table. Its offices are pastors and deacons, and it is self-governing. It functions through the ministry of gifts given by the Holy Spirit to each believer

We affirm that the return of Christ for all believers is imminent. It will be followed by seven years of great tribulation, and then the coming of Christ to establish His earthly kingdom for a thousand years. The unsaved will then be raised and judged according to their works and separated forever from God in hell. The saved, having been raised, will live forever in heaven in fellowship with God.
