WE BELIEVE in one God. We believe in God who is eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit - each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of deity.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the eternal second person of the Trinity, who was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and is fully God, but became fully man to save a lost world. We believe that he was crucified and three days later rose from the grave. He ascended into heaven, and will one day return again.
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit is the eternal third person of the Trinity, who permanently indwells every believer upon his or her faith in Jesus Christ. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.
WE BELIEVE the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error, and is the final authority of faith and practice.
WE BELIEVE that mankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own efforts.
WE BELIEVE that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.
WE BELIEVE in the bodily resurrection of all men, to the eternal communion with God for the believer, and the eternal separation from God for the unbeliever.
WE BELIEVE that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Holy Spirit, every believer should mature and pursue spiritual transformation to the image of Christ.
WE BELIEVE the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and making Him known to a lost world.
Crossroad Baptist Church exists to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ for the glory of His name.
To grow a community of believers RADICALLY DEVOTED to Christ IRREVOCABLY COMMITTED to one another, and RELENTLESSLY DEDICATED to reaching the lost with Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The essential and defining component of everything we do. Without it, we are nothing; within it we find everything!
We believe that sustained life-change does not happen in the context of weekend services but in real and authentic relationships. Therefore we value relationship as one of the highest priorities in life and believe that every person should be involved in life-giving relationships.
The Next Generation
We are dedicated to reaching the next generation and equipping them to be mighty men and women of God whose lives transform their sphere of influence and make an eternal impact in the world.
God is worthy of our best. Excellence in all that we do reflects the character of God and inspires people. Going beyond what is required, giving our very best brings joy to God's heart and glory to His name.
We believe that the church should be culturally relevant while remaining doctrinally pure. The Bible does not tell us to use only certain styles of music, or to present our message only through words. The Bible does make it clear, however, that we are to find ways to effectively bring the message "into all the world" in order to make disciples.
We live in a world desperately seeking truth and hope. We exist to share the Gospel and see lives changed in our city, our nation and our world through practical ministry to people's physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
From the beginning of time, God has used creative means to communicate with His people. If God communicates creatively, we want to also.
We are all better together. We share in the joy of seeing our unique strengths, abilities and gifts unite to accomplish God's kingdom purposes in our community and across the world.
