The following statement of faith and mission was drafted and adopted at the time of our chartering in 1992.
We, the family of God at Church of the Cross,
called to faith by God’s grace,
united by the love of Christ, God’s Son,
empowered to serve by God the Holy Spirit,
dedicate ourselves, our abilities and our resources,
to preaching, teaching, and living,
in obedience to God’s word, the Bible,
in order to allow God to equip us for every good work
and to multiply His ministry in this community and beyond.
We rejoice in our desire to fulfill this final command of Jesus to: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
Out of this mandate by Christ arises our daily mission:
To intentionally impact the secular world as a “light on the hill”, showing by our attitudes and actions the care and compassion of a Christ-centered, biblically-based life
