Youíll also find people from different races and economic backgrounds.

We're a grace-oriented church that believes Jesus is Lord. We also believe that the Bible is the perfect expression of His message to mankind.

WHAT WE BELIEVE:
Obviously, we are a church that believes on Jesus as the Christ, the Messiah predicted in the Old Testament and proclaimed in the New Testament. We believe that "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12.)

If you have any questions, please email our Preaching Minister, Keith Roberts.
WHAT WE EMPHASIZE:
like individuals, churches have distinct personalities. Itís easy to
get a picture of this churchís personality by looking at the things
we emphasize - our "core values":
(1) PRAYER. Since 1993 weíve emphasized prayer through our CrossView Prayer Ministries. We also regularly host Prayer Enrichment Workshops here at our building and conduct seminars for other churches and groups. Our vision is to motivate and train Godís people to pray with passion, which will bring worldwide revival.
We've had prayer groups meeting regularly in our members' homes since 1994, regularly for spiritual revival. We also pray for people who've requested our prayers by getting on one of our lists. (See our PrayerLines page.)
We believe the Lord expects His church to be a "house of prayer" (Matt. 21:13.)
(2) BIBLE TRAINING. Youíll see another emphasis if you visit us - our commitment to in-depth Bible study. Certified teachers in our congregation have helped us choose the best possible Bible class material for all ages. Our preacher, Keith Roberts, who has taught Bible at the seminary level, conducts our adult class.
And our "Kid's Own Worship" program draws children from all backgrounds into an exciting time of Bible learning and growth.
(3) PRACTICAL MINISTRY. We also emphasize practical help for people in need. Our Food Bank distributes free groceries to around 65 families on the third Saturday of each month.
We've delivered food baskets to shut-ins, distributed free clothing at certain seasons of the year, and have even donated our labor to build a house for someone who needed help.
