About Us

Jesus Changes

At Cross City Church, we’re about real people finding real hope, and experiencing real life in Christ. To us, it’s pretty simple: a relationship with Jesus changes everything. We want everyone in the world to hear that, believe it, and join us in a journey to follow Him. Here’s a simple explanation of what you can expect from Cross City.

Real People

We’re not perfect, and we don’t expect you to be. We strive for authenticity and invite you to just relax, be yourself, and experience the hospitality of the people of our church. Cross City is multi-generational and diverse, with a wide variety of people that worship with us every week. We think that everyone will feel at home.

Real Hope

We believe that the only real hope for the world is Jesus Christ. The world is looking for hope in so many places, but at the end of the day, there is only One who can offer real, life-changing, eternal hope. It’s the basis of why we come together and what we do as a Church. We celebrate it every week, and we want you to experience it too! Join us this week, and learn more about what real hope is all about.

Real Life

Real life is the result of real hope. When you decide to follow Jesus, your life becomes radically different. It doesn’t mean you become rich or famous, it means you see life differently and experience a new kind of joy. That’s what you’ll see in the people of Cross City—a new perspective on life. The more we pursue Christ, the more we experience the real life He offers. At Cross City, you’ll find many great opportunities to take the next step in your journey and experience that real, full, amazing life that Christ offers.

Foundational truths of Cross City

Our Beliefs Shape Us

What we believe shapes not only how we see the world, but every action we take. That’s why understanding what we believe is so important to us! Our church holds to the full doctrinal statement of the Baptist Faith and Message (2000)While we understand there is room for differing interpretations in what might be considered the “non-essentials,” we consider the 7 beliefs below to be essential foundations of our faith. Therefore, we place great importance on each of them at Cross City Church.

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, as well as the supreme and final authority in doctrine and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; John 17:17).

The Trinity

We believe there is one God, that the Father and the Son and the Spirit are each God, and that the Father and the Son and the Spirit are each a distinct person. We frequently state, “One God in Three Persons.” They are together, co-existent, co-eternal, co-equal as members of the Godhead. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:14; see also 1 Corinthians 8:6, Colossians 2:9 & Acts 5:3-4).

Jesus Christ

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God, fulfill prophecy and redeem sinful man. We believe He accomplished our redemption through His substitutionary sacrifice on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection. We believe our redemption and salvation are guaranteed by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead and that He is the only means of salvation.
(John 1:1, 14, 18; Luke 1:35; Romans 3:24-26; 4:25; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Philippians 2:5-8; 1 Timothy 2:5).

We believe that Jesus Christ is the visible image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation, the creator and sustainer of heaven and earth, and the Head of the church. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is now in heaven, exalted to the right hand of God where, as High Priest to His people, He serves as our Advocate and intercedes for us (Colossians 1:15-19; Hebrews 1:3; 3:1; 7:23-25; 1 John 2:1-2).

The Holy Spirit

We believe God the Holy Spirit is a person who restrains evil in the world and convicts men of sin, righteousness and judgment. He dwells in all who believe in Jesus. From the moment of belief in the Son, the Spirit baptizes believers into the body, seals them for salvation, regenerates them to new life, bestows spiritual gifts on each one, and is fully present to continually fill (control and guide) His own. We are to seek His filling, leadership and promptings on a moment-by-moment basis (John 16:7-11; John 3:8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, 13; John 14:16-17; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19).

Human Nature

We believe God created all things in heaven and earth and that they exist by His power (Genesis 1:1; Colossians 1:16-17). We believe people were created innocent and in the image and likeness of God but in their sin, they brought both physical and spiritual death to themselves and to all who have been born since. We believe people inherited a sinful nature, is alienated from God, can do nothing to merit God’s favor, and is therefore in need of salvation (Genesis 1:27; 2:17; 3:19; Ephesians 2:1-3).

Regarding marriage, consistent with the Baptist Faith and Message (2000), we believe that God created humankind in His image: male (man) and female (woman) (Genesis 1:26-28, Romans 1:26-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11), and that marriage is a union ordained by God and intended as a lifelong commitment between one man and one woman (Genesis 1:27-28, Genesis 2:18, Matthew 19:4-9, Mark 10:5-9, Ephesians 5:31-33). It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His Church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6).


We believe salvation is a sovereign gift of God and is received by man through personal faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for sin. We believe man is justified by grace through faith apart from works (Acts 13:38-39; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 1:4-5 & 2:8-10). We believe that Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation and that no one is saved apart from a conscious and personal decision to trust in Christ as his or her one and only Savior (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10). We believe all true believers elect of God, once saved, are kept secure in Christ forever (Romans 8:1, 29-30, 38-39; John 10:27-30).

The Second Coming

We believe in the future, visible, and bodily return of Jesus Christ to the earth, commonly called the Second Coming, to rule the nations and establish His kingdom on earth (Philippians 3:20; Matthew 24:15-31; Zechariah 14:4-11; Revelation 19:11-21).

We believe that no matter where you are in life, you have a next step to take.
