The Word Of God

CrossRoads affirms the Holy Scripture, the Old and the New Testament, is the Word of God and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct.

 New Birth in Jesus Christ

CrossRoads affirms that the new birth in Jesus Christ is New birth is more than the experience of forgiveness and acceptance. It is regeneration and the gift of eternal life which provides the qualities of love, righteousness, joy, and peace.

Commitment To The Whole Mission Of The Church

CrossRoads affirms the call to serve in the global work of evangelism, Christian formation, as well as the benevolent ministries of compassion and justice to the suffering and oppressed.

A Fellowship Of Believers

CrossRoads affirms race, class, and gender are to be of no advantage or disadvantage within the body of Christ. We recognize our need for ethnic diversity, for fellowship and mutual ministry across artificially constructed socio-economic boundaries, and for the gifts and leadership of women and men. This is not to claim that members of the believers’ church are perfect. The church knows itself to be always a company of sinners, but sinners who have experienced forgiveness and are seeking wholeness in a new relationship to God.

Conscious Dependence On The Holy Spirit

CrossRoads affirms one God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit continues the creative work of the Father and the redeeming work of the Son within the life of the church.

Freedom In Christ

CrossRoads affirms the importance of focusing on what unites followers of Jesus Christ rather than what separates them. Here followers of Christ find the security to offer freedom to one another on issues that might otherwise divide. Authentic freedom manifests itself in a right relationship with God and others. Freedom is a gift of God in Christ to all who are willing to receive it.
