Our Services

What are services like?
Our services are filled with worship, creative video, and Bible teaching. The service lasts 90 minutes, but most people say they can't believe how quickly the time goes by! Time flies when you're having fun!

What is the community like?
Our community is mostly made up of people who do not know Christ as Savior. Most people either do not have any past with a church or formal religion, or have had bed experiences that have driven them away from the Church many years ago. The typical image people have of churches is of an organization that is not relevant to their lives, or something they just don't want.

What if I'm not a Christian?
If you are not a Christ follower yet, you will be welcomed at Crossroads. We believe that if you are seeking truth, seeking God, or seeking a connection with genuine Christ followers, the best way for us to help you is to encourage you to investigate God and Bible truth through the way that we live and teach. We do not shove God down ;your throat. We attempt to model our faith in a manner that compels you to desire to know the same Jesus we know!
