Purpose and Vision

We believe Crossroads exists to provide a place of worship where everyone is welcome regardless of race, social position, manner of dress or mode of transportation.
We welcome the saved and the unsaved, “the banker and the biker.” We are and always will be a mixed multitude.
We believe Crossroads Ministries will be a ministry of 1000+ souls, with a special emphasis on Luke 14:23:
And the master said to the slave, ‘Go out into the highways and along the hedges, and compel them to come in, so that my house may be filled’. –Luke 14:23 (NASB)
We further believe Crossroads Ministries will provide a place where all ages may grow socially, physically and spiritually through various ministries and activities such as, but not limited to, fellowship, athletics, aerobics, weight lifting and other such programs as the Holy Spirit directs.
We believe the gifts of the Holy Spirit are and will continue to operate with signs and wonders following them that believe.
We declare that our Lord and Savior is the Head and Chairman of the board with the Holy Spirit being our Senior Partner.

Our Beliefs

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe (Genesis 1:1, 26-27). He has eternally existed in three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19). These three are equal and are one God.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Romans 1:3-4). He is co-equal with the Father (John 1:1-4). Born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:22-23), He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death (Romans 5:8-9, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Hebrews 4:14-15, 1 Peter 2:24). He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Acts 1:9-11, 1 Timothy 6:14-15).
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make mankind aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right (John 14:16-17, 16:7-13, Galatians 5:25, 1 Corinthians 2:12, Ephesians 1:13).
As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily. We believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit may be obtained by a definite act of appropriating faith on the part of the believer, and that the first evidence of this is the speaking with other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance (Acts 1:4-5,8, 2:1-4).
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:20-21). It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error (Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6, Proverbs 30:5, 2 Timothy 3:16).
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation (Genesis 1:26-27, Psalm 8:3-6). Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. Sin separates people from God and causes many problems in life (Isaiah 53:6a, 59:1-2, Romans 3:23).
Salvation is God’s free gift to all mankind but we must accept it (John 1:12-13). We can never be saved by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness through the shedding of Jesus’ blood can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty (Romans 3:24-26, 5:1, 6:23, Galatians 2:16, Ephesians 2:4-10). When this happens a person is (1) born again, (2) forgiven of sins, (3) set free from the power of sin (Romans 6:16-22).
We believe water baptism is an outward testimony to an inward work already accomplished in the heart of the believer. Baptism is administered according to Christ’s command, “In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are real places for eternal existence (Matthew 25:31-46, John 3:16, Romans 6:23, 2 Corinthians 5:1-8, 1 John 5:11-12, Revelation 20:15).
