Crossroads Church is a member of the South Central District of the Churches of Christ in Christian Union. The CCCU Church is an evangelical, Protestant denomination founded on Wesleyan-Arminian theology. The name Wesleyan is in honor of John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, whose emphasis on a life of faith, self-discipline and developing a heart of love is our example.
The sole basis for our beliefs is the Bible, which is uniquely God-inspired, without error, and the final authority on all matters on which it bears. As the Bible teaches, there is one God, eternally existing in three persons -- Father, Son and Holy Spirit -- each possessing all the attributes of deity.
God created humans to have fellowship with Him, but they defied God by sinfully going their own way. As a result of our sin we were separated from God. We need God's saving grace to end our alienation from Him. Salvation comes only through God's grace, not human effort and must be received personally by repentance.
Jesus Christ, second Person of the Trinity, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplishes salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator between us and God. He will return to earth to consumate history.
The Holy Spirit draws sinners to Christ and equips believers for personal growth and service to the church. The church's role is to glorify God and serve those in need. At the end, everyone will experience bodily resurrection and the judgement. Only believers will enjoy eternal fellowship with God.
