what do we believe?

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—our spiritual DNA. Our family tree bears the fruit of the deeper life, Fourfold Gospel (below) and the “living out” of our core values... all fueling our uncompromising call to “GO” wherever and whenever God leads.

  • As we seek to know Jesus personally, being one with Him, He will reveal Himself as our Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King. A.B. Simpson, the founder of the CMA, called this theology the Fourfold Gospel. This makes up our core “theology."

  • What we believe is foundational in its teachings about God and how He relates to us, and how we relate to Him. Based on His written Word, the Bible, we're compelled to serve God and the people of His world. We live and die by these words, and believe they bring the only life worth living—one wholly committed to the King Jesus. Click here for our Statement of Faith.

  • Jesus’ last words before His glorious ascension into heaven were given as a commission to His disciples. This Great Commission remains a command—a mandate—to every believer in Jesus Christ. His Great Commission is the call of Crossroads Church and of the Christian & Missionary Alliance.
