ABOUT OUR SERVICES
Sundays at 10:00 a.m.
From the very moment you enter Crossing Christian Church church, you begin learning. We have a different curriculum for the children’s ministry each month, and at a level they can comprehend. Our little ones are taught about Jesus before they can even pronounce his name. One child recently pointed to a picture of Jesus, and said, "I love Jesse." Her mom’s heart swelled with pride knowing her young daughter was learning who Jesus was at such an early age.
Our nursery workers are always friendly and parents are encouraged to drop their little ones off before service begins. You may choose to keep your child with you during the worship service at all times.
We encourage the elementary age children stay with their parents during the music portion of our service.
They are then released to go to their Sunday School and are provided with a similar message their parents will hear so they can share during family times at home.
Crossing YouthThe middle school age students have Sunday School twice a month and twice a month remain in the sanctuary to get the same teaching as their parents. It’s our desire that families are in unity with Biblical teaching so they can discuss the topics during the rest of the week.
Crossing StudentsOur teenagers are encouraged to remain in the adult services and participate with their parents and friends. It is encouraged for teens to begin serving in some capacity to gain a servants heart and reflect Jesus onto others.
We believe what Paul writes in 2 Timothy 3:16 that "all Scripture is God-breathed."
Thousands of people have died a martyrs death believing in the Bible and professing it’s truths. It’s difficult to understand how so many would die for something that wasn’t true and real. At Crossing Christian Church we have seen many lives changed because of the Word of God and it’s teachings.
We believe each and every word written in the Bible has been directed by the Holy Spirit. Man was used by God through the power of the Holy Spirit to write the very life changing words within each book.
The Bible has made claims to prophecies and truths that have made unbelieving scientists become believers.
We’re not to believe the Bible merely because it tells us to but because of the supernatural changes it has on people.
So many people have tried to prove the Bible wrong and attacks continue to happen against its truths but only fail in their efforts.
It’s our desire to speak the truth in love. Every message spoken never adds or takes away from the truth of this His Holy Word.
"And on the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread"
We believe that this verse clearly states that communion should be taken together as a church family on the 1st day (Sunday) of the week. We celebrate weekly communion and meditate on what Jesus did on the cross for us.
Tithe and OfferingsPaul states that believers should set aside a portion of their income as an offering, but this is not a tithe...
1 Corinthians: 16:1–2
"Now about the collection for the Lord’s people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do. 2 On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made."
It is common practice for believers to support the mission of the local church. Giving of ourselves and finances is considered a gift back to God for all He has done for us through His grace and forgiveness. We must always remember we can’t out–give God. But it blesses every person to try.
Praise and Worship
"Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise..."
At Crossing Christian Church we celebrate God and all His goodness through praise and worship music. David of the Bible not only wrote songs and music but he also played and made instruments. We believe in various styles of worship and allow the freedom to worship God any way the follower feels lead.
Baptism and the Holy Spirit
"Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?"
Paul states that when we have accepted Christ and His sacrifice on the cross and believe in Him, we crucify our old selves with Him and become a new creation. After the confession of faith and the receiving of the Holy Spirit has been accepted we celebrate in baptism. Baptism is by immersion, which is the definition of the Greek word for Baptism. Immersion in water, while it is Biblical and a way to identify ourselves with Christ, does not offer salvation. The believer has received salvation through the confession of faith and receiving of the Holy Spirit. Thus baptism is out of obedience only. Simply stated: we do it because Jesus did.
