We Are The Crossing

We exist to take the whole gospel, to the whole person, to the whole world.

Welcome to The Crossing Church! We’re excited that you’re here and would love the chance to meet you at our weekend gathering soon. We have one service on Sunday morning at 10 AM.  We offer great children’s ministries and a high-energy worship opportunity that will help you truly connect with God. There’s a place here for everyone!

We Are The Crossing

We believe in the one true God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

We believe in the one true God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit revealed to us through the Word of God and through the teachings of Jesus Christ, our Lord.We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, were given to us completely by God’s inspiration, and contain all truth necessary for faith and Christian living.

  • We believe that mankind is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil.
  • We believe that those who finally reject God are hopelessly and eternally lost.
  • We believe that salvation through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is forgiven and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
  • We believe that believers are to be set apart to live a holy life and serve God, following their conversion, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit gives assurance that we have been saved and set apart to live a holy life and serve God.
  • We believe that Jesus will return to Earth, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
