WHAT WE BELIEVE

One of the scariest things about going to a new church is wondering what they believe.  Many people have questions such as these:
+ Is this church serious about their belief in God and His written Word?
+ Will I be welcome in this church even though my life is far from perfect?
+ Do they believe anything weird?  Any snake handling stuff?

Well, to put your mind at rest, here is what we believe (and, no, there are no snakes involved)...

Crossview Church is a member of the Fellowship of Evangelical Churches (FEC), and as such, our beliefs align with theirs.
Please go to this website on the FEC Articles of Faith to read our beliefs about:
  I.  The Scriptures
II.  God
III.  Man
IV.  Salvation
V.  The Church
VI.  The Final Things

Biblical Authority

We are dedicated to seeing others, ourselves and this world through the eyes of Jesus Christ.

We do this through loving God’s Word, learning God’s Word and living God’s Word. The Bible is a compass for our lives and the ultimate authority on how we live, reflecting the heart of God. 

[Luke 21:33; Hebrews 4:12]


Authentic Love

We want everyone to experience God’s love in a real and genuine way. We love because He first loved us. Knowing God and His love will radically change the way we interact with others. [John 13:35; Matthew 22:36-40] 


Passionate Prayer

Prayer is a privilege we have in Christ to be able to communicate with our Creator. Prayer makes all the difference, not because of what we do but because of who He is. We passionately plead for God to move mightily in and through Crossview Church. [1 Thessalonians 5:17-18; Luke 18:1] 


Multiplying Servant-Leaders

We all have God-given spiritual gifts to be used to advance the kingdom of God in this world. As the church, we are called to multiply leadership to equip others for the work of the ministry. Not simply leaders but servant-leaders. Jesus’ earthly life and ministry testify to this. [2 Timothy 2:2; Ephesians 4:11-13; Matthew 28:19-20] 


Intentional Community

God created us for community. We were never meant to do this life alone. We are intentional about pursuing these life-giving relationships. It’s not difficult; it’s just costly (time, energy, etc). These relational investments are worth it as we encourage one another until Christ returns. [Acts 2:42-47; 2 Corinthians 6:11-13] 


Humble Excellence

In whatever we do, we want to give our best to the Lord. Excellence honors God and inspires people. It’s not perfection; it’s giving our best with what we’ve been given. We do this with humility, always desiring to glorify God. [Colossians 3:23-24; 2 Corinthians 8:7] 


Joyful Generosity

God is the greatest giver of all-time. He gave us His One and only Son, Jesus Christ! When we live generous lives, we are reflecting the character of God. He calls us to do this joyfully, which comes from a heart yielded to the Holy Spirit. Everything belongs to God; we simply steward it! [2 Corinthians 9:6-8; Proverbs 11:24-25]
