What We Believe

THE CROSS CHURCH

Sundays - 10:15 AM | Wednesdays - 7 PM BIBLE STUDY & CGroups

WE BELIEVE // IN SALVATION BY GRACE.

We believe that salvation is by the sovereign grace of God

  • That by the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a propitiatory death
  • That justification is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • That those whom God has effectually called shall be divinely preserved and ultimately perfected in the image of the Lord
  • That redemption and restoration is offered to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. (Acts 3:19-21; Rom 10:9-10; 1 Cor 6:9-11.)

We believe // in god the father. 

 an infinite, personal Spirit, all knowing, He is full of love, sovereign, Holy, relational, compassionate, all wise, just, truth, inerrant, all powerful, unchanging, omnipresent, full of grace, knows all things and saves sinners from death by whosoever comes to Him through faith in Jesus. We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE // IN jesus Christ. 

We believe in the absolute and essential deity of our Lord Jesus Christ

  • In His eternal existence, with the Father in pre-incarnate glory
  • In His work of creation, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death and bodily resurrection
  • In His triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return

   WE BELIEVE // in THE HOLY SPIRIT.


We believe in the absolute and essential deity, and in the personality of the Holy Spirit. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ for ministry. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide.

We believe that all people are sinners by nature and choice and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit, anyone who repents of their sins and confesses Jesus Christ as Lord. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit and that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and empowers the believers for service, often subsequent to regeneration.

WE BELIEVE // THE BIBLE IS THE  AUTHORITATIVE WORD OF GOD.

  • That the 66 books of the Old and New Testament were inspired by the Spirit of God as originally written
  • It is for all people.
  • It contains no errors since it is the truth inspired by God and those truths are relevant and applicable to everyday living.
  • It is the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct ·  2 Timothy 3:16

 WE BELIEVE // JESUS COMMITTED TWO ORDINANCES TO the CHURCH.

1) Baptism and,

2) the Lord’s Supper.

We believe in baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers.

WE BELIEVE // IN THE LAYING ON OF HANDS.

for baptism of the Holy Spirit, for ordination of pastors, elders, and deacons, and receiving from the Holy Spirit through the believer the gift of healing.

WE BELIEVE // GOD WONDERFULLY                                          & IMMUTABLY CREATES.

each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.          (Gen 1:26-27.)

We believe that Adam was divinely created in the image of God

  • That by the sin of disobedience he fell from that state
  • That all his posterity inherited spiritual depravity and defilement
  • That all men therefore are guilty before God and condemned to physical and spiritual death

WE BELIEVE // IN FINAL AUTHORITY FOR MATTERS OF BELIEF.

our statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe.

prayer // praise

We believe in the power of prayer and celebration. We'd love if you send us a prayer request or praise so that we can join in praying together. The Cross Staff Team intentionally reads and prays through all requests on a weekly basis.
