CrossWay is a modern expression of the New Testament community of faith, hope and love… wildly diverse, yet united by relationship to Jesus Christ. We are Christ followers from different walks of life at different places on our spiritual journey with one thing in common: an honest pursuit of the God who calls us.
Go to Who We Are.
We understand that new experiences can be intimidating. This is also true when visiting a church for the first time, especially if you’re new to the church scene. We think it might be helpful if you know what to expect before you come. So when you check out CrossWay, you can expect…
A Friendly, Authentic Atmosphere No masks please. We’re not interested in being impressed because here our focus is on loving God and loving people. Jesus said that real worship is in “spirit and truth,” so authenticity is important to us. Come as you are and you’ll find a church who loves where you are and will help you connect with God and discover what you can become. After all, God loves us as we are, but refuses to leave us that way.
People Just Like You We’re all pretty flawed here, so you will fit right in! You’ll find people from a variety of backgrounds at different places on their spiritual journey with one thing in common: an honest search for God and his divine design for their lives. CrossWay is a house of friends and we would very much like you come on in and stay a while.
A Safe Place to Check Out a Dangerous Gospel No secret here: We believe Jesus Christ is the most significant person in history and we’re pretty bold about that. You won’t find any hidden messages or veiled references. No bait-and-switch. What you will find is an environment that welcomes the seeker and the skeptic. Your questions are okay here. You will not be subjected to emotional manipulation or pressure, just clear and compelling communication of biblical truth. We know you must make your own choices for them to be meaningful.
Music that Rocks the Soul We are told five times in the Scriptures to “sing a new song” to the Lord. We take the Bible seriously, so in addition to some old favorites (remixed of course), we sing modern worship music. Sing along if you like, or just enjoy the tunes. Don’t worry, we sing loud enough to drown you out, but not so loud you bleed from the ears.
Creative Communication We use a variety of methods for communication: multimedia, video, drama, music and teaching. But we never elevate style above substance, and even though it may feel cutting edge, we’re just doing what missionaries have done for two thousand years. The methods have changed, but the message has stayed the same. In everything we do, we strive to clearly communicate the fame of Jesus because it is all about him.
Teaching that Hits You Where You Live The Bible is the most relevant book ever written. Its topics are timeless and so are its truths. It is still the world’s all-time best seller. We believe God’s word and we teach it fearlessly, because we believe your intrinsic needs go even deeper than your felt needs. We go for the heart, not the throat, and we teach for transformation, not just information. So expect to actually hold a Bible in your hands, open it, read it, and spend most of our time explaining and applying it.
We believe and teach the historical and biblical gospel of Jesus Christ, and affirm the “five solas” of the Reformation: that salvation is by grace alone (Sola Gratia), through faith alone (Sola Fide), in Christ alone (Solus Christus), to the glory of God alone (Soli Deo Gloria); and that the final authority in matters of faith and living is Scripture alone (Sola Scriptura).

Our Senior Pastor is Jesus Christ (1 Peter 5:4). We mean it when we say it really is all about him. We are his tribe, he is our King, and it is from him and through him and to him and for him that we exist.
