What we believe about Jesus, the Bible, and the Church

Our Beliefs


Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.


We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

The bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.


We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.


We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.


We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.

Holy Communion

We believe in the real Presence of Jesus with us when we gather for Holy Communion. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, the bread and juice remind us of the sacrifice that Jesus made for us, and enable us to live as God desires for us. At Cross Roads and Prospect, we celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month. This is God's Table, and so it is open to all who repent of their sins and confess Jesus as Lord of their lives.
