Crossview's Statement of Faith
The Bible is the inspired, authoritative, and infallible Word of God. It is sufficient, trustworthy, and without error in all that it means to teach. (2 Tim 3:16)
There is one God (Deut 6:4; Mk 12:29-34; Eph 4:6; 1 Tim 2:5), eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Mt 28:19; 2 Cor 13:14; 2 Pet 1:1)
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. (Col 2:9; Titus 2:13; Heb 1:2-3; 1 Jn 5:20) Being fully God and fully man, he revealed God through his sinless life, miracles, and teaching. He provided salvation through his death on the cross and by his bodily resurrection. (Jn 3:16; 14:6)
Salvation is redemption by Christ of the whole person from sin and death. It is offered as a free gift by God to all and must be received personally through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. (Acts 16:31; Rom 10:9-10)
The Holy Spirit is the third member of the Trinity. He indwells Christians and enables them to live godly lives. He also empowers the church to carry out Christ’s great commission. (Jn 16:13; Rom 8:11; 1 Cor 3:16; 2 Tim 1:14)
God created the human race, both male and female, in his own image. (Gen 1:26-27) We believe, therefore, in the sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death, and that marriage is intended by God to be between one man and one woman. (Gen 2:24-25; Mt 19:4-5; 1 Tim 3:12)
The Church: The Universal Church consists of all people who have accepted Jesus as their Savior. (1 Cor 12:13; 12:27; Col 1:18; 1 Tim 3:15) The Local Church is any specific group of followers of Jesus who gather in His Name for teaching, worship, and prayer, desiring to serve each other, God, and others. (Acts 2:42; Rom 12:4-5; 1 Cor 1:2; Heb 10:25)
There will be a bodily resurrection of all human beings some day to stand before God. (1 Cor 15:42-49; Rev 20:11-13) Those who choose Jesus will be given the gift of eternal life (Jn 10:28; 17:2), while those who reject Him will perish. (Jn 3:16; Rm 6:23; 1 Jn 5:11-12)
At Crossview Church, it is our goal to worship Jesus with our whole lives (Deut 6:5). On the surface, that statement may sound cliché but, this is an all-encompassing belief that impacts us profoundly both as individuals and as a church.
