We are a diverse group of people, on a journey of faith and discovery together, however, we are unified as a church around some core beliefs:

  • About God:  God is the one God Who has chosen to reveal Himself to us in three ways: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  He is Creator of all people in His own image, and all things for His glory.
  • About Jesus:  Everything we do is all about Jesus.  We believe He is the subject of God's great story, the example of the kingdom life, and the Salvation of all mankind.  Everything we do at Grace Crossing is about Jesus.
  • About the Holy Spirit:  The Holy Spirit convicts and converts all who believe in Christ, teaches the church in the voice of the Living Christ, and empowers the church and all believers for the mission of Christ in the world.
  • About Salvation:  We believe salvation is the free gift of God's Grace, received through our exercise of faith in Jesus Christ.
  • About the Bible:  We believe in the authority of Scripture. We believe the Bible, under the Lordship of Christ, is central to the life of the individual and the church. We affirm the freedom and right of every Christian to interpret and apply scripture under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.
  • About Sin:  All people are separated from God by sin, but Jesus has overcome that sin through His life, death, and resurrection.
  • About Service:   We believe God has called and gifted all believers for service, and we affirm the call of men and women in all areas of Christian ministry.
  • About Evangelism:  We believe that the entire life of the Christian is Evangelism.  We believe the Gospel is spread through proclamation of the Word, through acts of love, and through justice and peace making.
  • We also affirm alongside CBF the basic Baptist principles that have historically shaped the Baptist tradition, best expressed in the following four freedoms:
  • Soul Freedom – We believe in the priesthood of all believers and the equality of every church member.
  • Bible Freedom – We believe in the authority of Scripture under the Lordship of Christ without the imposition of creedal statements.
  • Church Freedom – We believe in the autonomy of every local church and affirm every church’s right to determine its faith, practice and leadership without outside interference.
  • Religious Freedom – We believe in full religious liberty and the separation of church and state.
