Who We Are
The Cross Church is a Baptist church that is in affiliation with the Southern Baptist Convention. In short we are: Christian, Evangelical, Missional, and Reformed. Our churches mission and vision is simple:
We exist to: Exalt Jesus, Equip the saints, and Evangelize the lost.
We fulfill this mission by being:
The most Christ centered church we can be
The most worship centered church we can be
The most prayer filled church we can be
The most loving church we can be
The most biblically expositing church we can be
The most reforming church we can be
The most evangelistic church we can be
The most genuine church we can be
We are always looking for people who can work together with us to build a church that will glorify Christ. We would love to have you join us on this mission as we seek to raise up a people in this city for the glory and praise of Jesus Christ.
What to expect when you visit.
1. A Scripture driven atmosphere
The Christian church has been around for almost two thousand years, and has taken on many different beliefs and practices since then. We've picked up a lot of traditional baggage and doctrines that are not even mentioned in the Bible. Our church has decided to do its best at becoming a Bible dictated church. This is why we take a strong stand on the verse-by-verse exposition of God’s Word. If you want the truth of a matter you have to go to the source. If you want to know what kind of church you should attend you need to know what the Bible says about church. Every Christian should want their church to be patterned after the biblical one. We sure do.
2. Praise and Worship that is exclusively CHRIST centered
We are obsessed with the person of Christ and His exaltation is all that matters to us. It is our goal to make Jesus the supreme end to all that we do. We believe worship should be firmly directed to the purpose of the honoring and praise of Jesus Christ. And we believe we best accomplish this through a worship style that is primarily contemporary.
3. A people who genuinely love you
We believe love is what builds a great church. Love for Christ, love for His church and love for our city. It is our mission as a church to show the love of Christ in a real and lasting way to all people no matter your ethnic, social or spiritual background. Yes, we even love you!
4. A place where you can come as you are
People always ask: “What should I wear at your worship service?” Our response is always the same; "wear what you believe is appropriate for worshipping Jesus." For some that is a suit and tie. For others it is a tee-shirt and jeans. Just remember coming to church isn't about how we look to others; It’s about what we are bringing to Jesus: worship.
