New to church?

We know sometimes visiting a new church can be intimidating. Don’t worry we’ve got you covered. We have provided a “What to expect” section to help. Also, if you have any special requests, needs or questions contact us today and we will be happy to assist. We want your first visit to CrossCentral to be enjoyable and meaningful. Hope to see you soon!

What to Expect

When you attend a worship experience at CrossCentral expect to feel welcomed and accepted, just as you are. We are a causal and friendly atmosphere where everyone can feel at home. Don’t worry we never ask guests to stand, raise their hand or do anything to single you out.

Before the Service Begins

When you arrive, coffee and refreshments are usually set out for you by our incredible hospitality team before each service. Sit wherever you like and enjoy the service.

Do You Have Little Ones?

Family is important to us so nursery and children’s classes are available. (We call this KidCentral). KidCentral is clean, safe and located in the Annex building. You can check your kids in with our trained staff and allow them to learn the Bible, sing songs, make crafts, have fun and make new friends while you worship. We want KidCentral to be the best hour of their week!

What’s The Music Like?

We love worship. We have live worship music and blend traditional hymns and modern worship songs every Sunday. Worship is our response to God’s love and prepares our hearts to receive from the message.

What’s The Preaching Like?

Jesus is the central theme and hero of the Bible, every sermon we teach points to the love and grace of God through the cross. With in-depth Bible teaching that is fun, relevant and down to earth, we want you to discover the beautiful richness of the Gospel and experience the good news of Jesus in a fresh way that enhances your life.

What We Believe

The Scriptures

We believe the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament to be the inspired word of God, the final authority for faith and life and infallible.

(2 Timothy 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12, 13)

The Godhead

We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

(Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Person & Work of Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man (John 1:1–2, 14; Luke 1:35). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that our justification is made sure by His literal resurrection from the dead (Romans 3:24; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3–5).

The Person & Work of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption.

(John 16:8–11; 2 Corinthians 3:6; 1 Corinthians 12:12–14; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 5:18)

The Depravity of Man

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that through Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; apart from God’s grace man is unable to remedy his lost condition and is therefore in need of salvation.

(Genesis 1:26, 27; Romans 3:22, 23; 5:12; Ephesians 2:1–3, 12)

Salvation

We believe that salvation is three fold; justification, sanctification and glorification. It is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins (Ephesians 2:8–10; John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18–19). We believe that we are saved, being saved and will be saved (Ephesians 2:5, 2Corinthinans 1:10).

The Ministry and Spiritual Gifts

We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowing of spiritual gifts. It is, however, the believer’s responsibility to attempt to develop their sovereignty given spiritual gift(s). The baptism of the Holy Spirit occurs at conversion and is the placing of the believer into the Body of Christ. We also believe that particular spiritual gift(s) are neither essential, nor prove the presence of the Holy Spirit, nor are an indication of deep spiritual experience (1 Corinthians 12:7, 11, 13; Ephesians 4:7–8). We believe that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith, in accordance with His own will, for the sick and afflicted (John 15:7; 1 John 5:14, 15). We believe that it is the privilege and responsibility of every believer to minister according to the gift(s) and grace of God that is given to him (Romans 12:1–8; 1 Corinthians 13; 1 Peter 4:10–11).

The Church

We believe that the church, which is the body and bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons (Ephesians 1:22, 23; 5:25–27; 1 Corinthians 12:12–14; 2 Corinthians 11:2). We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures (Acts 14:27; 18:22; 20:17; 1 Timothy 3:1–3; Titus 1:5–11). We believe in the autonomy of the local churches, free of any external authority and control (Acts 13:1–4; 15:19–31; 20:28; Romans 16:1,4; 1 Corinthians 3:9, 16; 1 Corinthians 5:4–7, 13; 1 Peter 5:1–4). We recognize believer’s baptism and the Lord’s supper as scriptural means of testimony for the church (Matthew 28:19, 20; Acts 2:41, 42; Acts 18:8; 1 Corinthians 11:23–26).
