Going to a new church can be intimidating. We hope that you feel welcome at our church, so to help you out, click the categories below to get a better understanding of the heart of our weekly services. Join us Sunday @ 10:30 am

The primary goal of our weekly gatherings is to worship God. We worship the Triune God–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as he has revealed Himself in His Word, the Bible. We desire to worship in spirit and in truth, showing him our gratitude, adoration, expectancy, love, and obedience.

“God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24

We believe that the Bible is the true and perfect Word of God. This means that we see the Bible as essential for knowing God and worshiping him appropriately. We desire that all of our ministries are saturated with biblical truth. We desire to know the Bible in its entirety, and we are eager to hear what God has to say in His Word. This means that everything from our songs to our children’s ministries to our preaching will be focused on knowing the Bible.

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16

The Gospel–the good news of Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection for sins–is the central message of the Bible. It is also central to our church. We strive to proclaim and celebrate the gospel in every element of our worship.  We believe that the gospel changes everything about us, and so we want it to be central.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, ‘The righteous shall live by faith.'” Romans 1:16-17

The local church is a gathered group of people. We know that when we worship God, we do it individually and together. We want our gatherings to be times of encouragement, instruction, confession, forgiveness, and growth. Thus, when you come to Crossroads, you will find that we treat one another as family. You will be greeted by other people in the church. You will be encouraged. You will find that the people here want you to feel welcome. Every Sunday, there is time before and after our services for fellowship. After each service, a snack is provided, and this is a great time to get to know one another and minster to one another at an individual level.

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11

Our Adult Sunday School time goes from 9:45 am-10:30 am. We are currently going through the EFCA doctrinal statement in detail. This time is a wonderful opportunity to grow in your faith, as you discuss and ask questions.

Out church service goes from 11:00 am-12:15 pm. We start with announcements and prayer, then we sing 4-5 songs. We then have a Scripture reading and a time of corporate prayer. Following prayer, there will be a 35-45 minute sermon, followed by a closing song.

We encourage our members to worship God through giving, though we offer the opportunity to do so discretely through an offering box in the back. We take a monthly benevolence offering which funds those in our church and community who are in need.

We strive to have our services honor God, and therefore we desire to be warm, gentle, and reverent.

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” Colossians 3:16

Music at Crossroads Bible Church is more about content than style. We sing songs that represent the truth of God, and draw our hearts and minds toward God in worship. Most Sundays our primary instrumentation is a piano and violin. We sing songs from many generations and want our music to unite people in worship to God.

“Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!” Psalm 150:6

Corporate Prayer at Crossroads Bible Church is something we practice regularly. Each Sunday, we have a designated prayer time during our service. At times we will take requests and pray for them. Other times we will have an open prayer time where anyone can pray aloud. We believe that praying for one another, our community, our leaders, our world, and our brothers and sisters around the world is vital to the health of our church.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6

We believe that preaching is critical to the health and effectiveness of our church. Therefore, we devote a large portion of our service to preaching. Our pastor is committed to expository preaching–communicating the meaning of each passage of Scripture clearly. This means that he is typically preaching through a book of the Bible. Guest preachers are also encouraged to give expository messages and to share personal testimonies.

“Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.” 2 Timothy 4:2

Children are a welcome and beloved part of our church. We invite parents to allow their children to participate in our whole church service. Children are welcome to listen to the sermon. Parents can also choose to have their children participate in a children’s church time, which will take place during the sermon. (We do not currently have a regular children’s church time, but we have people in our church who are eager to start when such a need arises.)

“One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.” Psalm 145:4

We have a fully equipped nursery. A speaker in the nursery plays the message for anyone needing the nursery. As with children, we are blessed when babies are a part of our Sunday service. Their coos and cries remind us that God is raising up another generation that loves him, in which we get to take part!

“But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children.” Psalm 103:17

We believe that communion and baptism are ordinances given to and administered by the local church. We typically celebrate communion twice a month, remembering the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ. We ask that only those who are committed to Jesus Christ participate in communion. We also believe that baptism is an outward display of salvation. Those who have displayed faith in Jesus Christ are invited to be baptized. We will schedule special baptism services as they are needed.

“”For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.” 1 Corinthians 11:26
