Cross Road is led by a team of servant-leaders who seek to equip our church to make disciples!
REACH. TEACH. LIVE. LOVE. LIKE JESUS.
The Bible - Comprised of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments,is the inspired and true, authoritative Word of God, revealing all things necessary to salvation, and the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
The Lord - One God Creator and Sustainer of all creation, eternally existent in three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ both the Son of God and the Son of Man, fully human and fully divine, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He surrendered the prerogative of His deity and He died on the cross for the sins of the world. He was raised in bodily form from the dead and ascended into heaven where He now sits at the right hand of the Father to make intercession as High Priest and Advocate for all believers.
The Savior - Jesus Christ both the Son of God and the Son of Man, fully human and fully divine, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He surrendered the prerogative of His deity and He died on the cross for the sins of the world. He was raised in bodily form from the dead and ascended into heaven where He now sits at the right hand of the Father to make intercession as High Priest and Advocate for all believers.
The Holy Spirit - The very presence of God in the life of the believer. His ministry is to glorify Christ, convince the world of sin and righteousness and judgment, regenerate repentant sinner, indwell, sanctify, empower, guide, and instruct the believer in and for godly living and service. He is the comforter and the One who comes alongside the believer to give the abundant life of peace on earth.
The Fall - Human beings were created in the Image of God, but in the garden fell into sin and were alienated from God. Redemption is only through Jesus Christ. Salvation is by the grace of God, through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ who died a substitutionary sacrifice once for all for the sins of man. Only through repentance and faith in Christ and regeneration of the Spirit can they obtain salvation.
The Cross - That only through Jesus Christ is there any ground for faith for salvation for all who believe, and those who receive Christ as Lord and Savior are born again of the Holy Spirit and become part of the family of God. We believe the redeemed are kept by God's power and are thus secure in Christ forever. It is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God's Word, which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an excuse for sinful living.
The Ordinances - Water baptism and the Lord's Supper through which God communicates grace to believers.
The Resurrection - Of both the living and the dead, believers will be raised to everlasting joy with their Lord, and unbelievers unto judgement and eternal punishment.
Baptism - Christian baptism is the believer's public profession of faith in Jesus Christ. The believer is immersed in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Baptism is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior.
Child Dedication - During a worship service we invite your family and friends to surround you as Pastor Rusty leads you to make a promise before God to raise your child in the ways of Christ. As a church family, we will also promise to care for, protect, and support you and your children in this effort.
Membership - A one evening class with a pastor that will give you orientation to our mission and value statements, and will move you through what your leadership considers the most important parts of being a church member. We are looking for members who will use their gifts to serve God and others by investing in people.
Communion - We share the Lord's supper each month with the bread and cup as symbols of Christ's body and blood given for our redemption and forgiveness.
LifeGroups - In a casual, homestyle setting, we learn to care for, encourage, challenge, and even comfort one another when those seasons of afflictions come.
