Who We Are

Crossbridge is a Bible-believing church that is part of the Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA).  We desire to communicate God’s truths as we help people take the next step in their faith in Jesus. Our goal is that we would be as “user-friendly” as possible to people who aren’t used to going to church, while at the same time not compromising God’s plans and desires. We are all about loving God, loving people & serving the world.

The answers to some of our most frequently answered questions are below.

In a High School?

We want to be wise in the way we invest the money people contribute to our church. Yes, there will be a day when we’ll have our own building and campus, but right now, we’ve decided that meeting in the school is the best stewardship of the resources God has given us.

What do I wear?

Whatever you would like. Most people dress casually and there are not many ties and jackets, . . . but if that is your style, go for it.

What about my kids?

We have our CBkids program for children nursery – 5th Grade every Sunday morning. You can sign your children into CBkids in the hallway outside of our kid's space when you arrive on Sunday.

What do you believe?

Many people like to know a church's statement of faith as they try to figure out if a church is right for them. As part of the C&MA denomination, we abide by & agree with the C&MA statement of faith:

We believe that Jesus is the Christ, God incarnate. He came in human form to sacrifice Himself, once for all, that we might not perish but have eternal life. This is the bedrock of our belief—the spiritual DNA of The Alliance. Our family tree bears the fruit of the deeper life, Fourfold Gospel, and the “living out” of Alliance core values—all fueling our uncompromising call to “go” wherever and whenever God leads.

Crossbridge also has five key pillars that we use as a foundation to make all of our decisions as a church. These are our guiding principles as we decide what events to do, sermons to preach and activities to participate in.

Crossbridge's Pillars

Unashamedly Biblical

We believe that the Bible is the word of God and that if the Bible talks about a topic, we should too.

We base our belief in being Unashamedly Biblical on the following Bible verses.

Romans 1:16 "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes..."

Hebrews 4:12 "For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."

2 Timothy 3:16 "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness..."

Holy Spirit Empowered

We believe that the power to live the Christian life is given by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

We base our belief in being Holy Spirit empowered on the following Bible verse.

John 14:15-17 "'If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever - the Spirit of Truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you"

Intentionally Relevant

In everything we do, we strive to make the Gospel of Jesus applicable to people in their every day life so that they can continue to take the next step in their faith in Jesus. Our God is not an outdated God, but is for us today in all aspects of our life.

We base our belief in being Intentionally Relevant on the following Bible verse.

1 Corinthians 9:19-23 "Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings."

Relationally Transparent

We believe that life is lived better in relationships that are built upon the Biblical foundations of trust, respect and openness. We recognize that we are all sinners who are loved by an amazing God with a love that we do not deserve. We make all efforts to be real and honest about all areas of our lives with the people around us and in trusted small groups who help keep us accountable and point us back to Jesus. Crossbridge is a place where we can be broken together and also experience God's healing in our lives.

Family Focused

One of our main focuses is on family ministry and providing key environments for kids (CBkids) & teens (CByouth) to know and experience the love of Jesus. We also want to be intentionally helping parents grow in their own faith so that they can teach and disciple their children to take their next step of faith in Jesus.

We are made up of all types of families: married couples with & without kids, single parent families, blended families, foster & adoptive families, and people who are single who may or may never want children of their own. Everyone has a place at Crossbridge and all are welcome.
