What We Believe

  • We believe the Holy Bible to be the infallible word of God.
  • We believe there is only One True God – revealed in three persons…Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
  • We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s son, Jesus was both human and divine.
  • We believe, though originally good, man willingly fell into sin – ushering into the world- evil and death, both physical and spiritual.
  • We believe every person can have restored fellowship with God through salvation by entering into a personal, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord.
  • We believe and practice two ordinances – 1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation, and 2) Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.
  • We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a uniquely personal experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing, discerning and serving, just as it did in New Testament times.
  • We believe in the manifestations of the Holy Spirit of God as recorded in the Book of Acts, following the Feast of Pentecost. We believe that God is the same yesterday, today and forever; therefore the gifts of the Spirit are still available to all who believe.
  • We believe “justification” occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also begins a progressive, lifelong process of “sanctification” (separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christ-like.)
  • We believe the Church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe the Church is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ. Furthermore, we believe that the church is responsible for looking after orphans and widows.
  • We believe a divinely called and scripturally ordained leadership serves the church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, and to build up or edify the body of believers – the Church.
  • We believe in the Second Coming – when Jesus will rapture His Church.
  • We believe a final judgment will take place for those who do not have a personal, intimate relationship with Christ. They will be judged for their sin.

At Crossroads Church it is our hearts desire to lead as many to Jesus Christ as possible.
