What to expect

when you come to Crosspoint

Everything we do is unmistakably marked by our values...

Transformative Power
of God's Word

We expect God's Word, through sound teaching, to transform us into Jesus-centered disciples. The Bible is the basis of who we are, what we believe, and everything we do. The power for real life change exists through the Word, not our ideas, thoughts, or opinions. God's Word is written in ink, while our plans and theologies are in pencil.

Prayer

Prayer is simply moving deeper into the heart of God. We are committed to activating personal transformation through prayer and advancing God's Kingdom in society's pillars through Holy Spirit-directed prayers. We boldly access the power of God to defeat every threat and overcome every obstacle as we make the Kingdom of God a reality on earth.

All People Matter

We are broken people loved by the Father, redeemed by Jesus, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. We know through experience that we need to interact with people in genuine, accepting relationships. That includes people who don't even think about Christian spirituality and all the people around Crosspoint who are growing in this Jesus-centered journey with us.

Empowering People

Christ came to the earth and empowered His disciples with all authority in heaven and on earth. He gave them the keys to the Kingdom of God and the authority to live out His church. They were imperfect people who did not have all the answers, and yet Jesus unleashed them to lead and to serve. At Crosspoint, we believe in modeling the example of Jesus by empowering people to use their gifting and passions to serve God across the seven pillars of cultural influence.

Generosity

God is a generous God. Therefore, the people of God must express His generosity. We desire to be a community of believers who treat others with the same extravagant grace that God has lavished upon us, and we desire to demonstrate this grace in our individual communities, our city, and around the world in a way that is transparent, real, and helpful. We are blessed to be a blessing to each other, Central Virginia, and the world without regard for what it will cost us.

Living these values out together creates a culture that is uniquely inviting and challenging,

and one where everyone is empowered to make disciples and make a difference for the mission.

We're on a mission

it's why we exist and want you to join in

We exist to make God famous by making Jesus-centered disciples by the power of the Holy Spirit.

What we do:

Equip

We equip everyone through preaching, teaching, counseling, sharing, and living by the sufficiency of God's Word. We equip practically with discipleship tools, like the Life Shapes that are displayed in our logo, and through Learning Labs that anyone can join for hands-on equipping.

Deploy

We engage across the seven pillars--church, family, business, arts and entertainment (that includes sports), media, government, and health and education. Under His authority to make disciples and with the power of His Holy Spirit, every person brings the Kingdom into existence in his or her pillar.

What we want you to do:

Engage

We foster an atmosphere where, by the power of the crucified and resurrected Lord Jesus, we can all be used to minister God's love by repairing the broken and bringing into restoration those lost to sin. Everyone has chances to volunteer, give, and engage fully in the community of God's redeemed. 

Disciple

When everyone knows who they're discipling and who is discipling them, our church is thriving in its mission. We empower everyone to do exactly this in ministry teams and in small groups, which provide a context for incarnational and intercultural discipleship that everyone can engage in.

Together, we can unleash God's Kingdom in our world.

We invite you to join in.

What we believe

the faith that shapes our practice

Crosspoint Church is a Wesleyan Church whose faith and practice is:

  • Centered in Jesus
  • Committed to the authority of Scripture
  • Conservative in our evangelical, theological heritage
  • Consumed in worship of the triune God
  • Continually aggressive in pursuit of His glory and kingdom
We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original manuscripts, and the sufficient and final authority for all matters of faith, practice, and life (2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe God is triune, being three in person and one in essence. The Father, Son, and Spirit are equally God but are three in person. This God is the center of our worship (Matthew 28:19-20).
We believe in the sovereign rule of the Father who assumes headship of all that He created and continues to care and sustain in providence all that exists (Isaiah 40).
We believe that the eternal Son took on human flesh, being born of a virgin, and that Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man, the only mediator between God and man (Matthew 1:23-25, 1 Timothy 2:5, Philippians 2:5-7).
We believe that all have sinned and are under the condemnation of death (Romans 3:23 and 6:23).
We believe that salvation is by grace through faith and that true faith in the gospel will be made evident by a life of godliness, which is only possible by walking with the Holy Spirit and by participation with the community of the saints (Acts 2:42, Ephesians 2:10, Philippians 2:12, Hebrews 10:25).
We believe that Jesus, according to the will of God the Father, offered Himself as a substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him have eternal life. On the cross, Jesus defeated evil, sin, and death. He shed His blood so that those who repent and believe will have life in Him as their Lord and Savior (John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10).
We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus as the first fruits of our resurrection and His ascension into heaven to the right hand of the Father. We look forward in hope to His second coming in glory (1 Corinthians 15:3-8, 2 Peter 3).
We believe that baptism is a faithful response to God’s grace, signifying one’s identification with Christ and His church and that the church’s privilege is to commune with the triune God and His people in celebrating the Lord’s Supper (Acts 2:38-42, Matthew 28:19, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
We believe that the church is the pillar and foundation of the truth, sharing in God’s redemptive mission through proclamation of the gospel by word and deed, resulting in transformed lives committed to God’s glory. The church is the community where the people of God share their lives in fellowship with God and each other (1 Timothy 3:15, Matthew 28:19-20).
We believe in a coming Great Day where all people -- the living and the dead -- will stand before God to hear His verdict concerning their eternal destiny, either heaven or hell (Revelation 20:11-15, 1 Corinthians 3:12-15).
