What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of theCrossroads United Pentecostal Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

The BIBLE is God's Word

The Blueprint at theCrossroads, we believe the Bible to be the inspired truth without error even to the very words, and that it is therefore the inspired word of God.


We believe that the one God, who revealed Himself in the Old Testament as Jehovah, revealed himself in His Son, Jesus Christ. Thus, Jesus Christ was and is God. In other words, Jesus is the one true God manifested in flesh, for in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
(John 1:1-14; I Timothy 3:16; Colossians 2:9)

While fully God, Jesus was also fully man, possessing a full and true humanity. He was both God and man. Moreover, the Holy Spirit is God with us and in us. Thus God is manifested as Father in creation and as the Father of the Son, in the Son for our redemption, and as the Holy Spirit in our regeneration.


We receive salvation not by our own merit, but by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are made partakers of this salvation through obeying the Gospel in repentance from sins, baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and by receiving the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.

We are baptized by this one Spirit into the Body of Christ. (Romans 5:1, 6:1-6, 6:17, Ephesians 2:8, Acts 2:38, 1 Corinthians 12:13) There is no salvation outside of obedience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)


Godly living must characterize the life of every child of the Lord, and we must live according to the pattern and example given in the Word of God. "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world." (Titus 2:11-12)
Issues of holiness are not salvation issues in and of themselves; rather, they are Christian maturity ("sanctification") issues. "Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord." (Hebrews 12:14) However, if we choose not to obey God in these areas, our willful disobedience will eventually become a salvation issue. (1 Corinthians 3:16-17, 2 Corinthians 6:17 - 7:1)

Daily Living

We believe that God, who is holy, calls each of us into relationship with Him. This relationship with Him manifests itself in every aspect of our lives, including our families. As such, theCrossroads stresses and supports the family unit as God's primary institution. With the knowledge of His plan for salvation, the revelation of who He is, and the blessing of the life He equips us to lead, we believe in covenanting the Spirit -- anticipating the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
