If you are considering a visit to Crossings, please accept this as a personal invitation. We understand visiting a new place and meeting new people isn't easy. Let me put your mind at ease; Crossings is a safe place--a place where you can experience healthy community and grow in faith.

We are committed to serving God’s people locally and abroad through our OKC, Edmond, and online campuses as well as our Prison Ministry, Community Center, Clinic, and many others. There are opportunities to enrich your faith by being a part of weekly Bible studies and using your gifts and talents to volunteer.

The information on this page is meant to assist you in learning about who we are as a church and what governs our choices. Our hope is that you gain a better understanding of who we are, what we believe, and what we do. 

What We Believe


GOD

We believe God exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that God is a being who exhibits wonderful power, goodness, and love. 

Genesis 1:1, John 1:1-3, Romans 1:19-20

Humanity

We believe that all people were created in the image of God to live in relationship with Him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts. 

Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:23-25, Ephesians 2:8-10


JESUS

We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who came to earth to show humanity what God was like, and through his physical death and resurrection to reconnect a lost world back to God. 
John 1:1-4, John 3:16, John 14:6, 1 John 2:1-2

Salvation

We believe that the death of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis by which humans can have a relationship with God restored. God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for and forgiveness of their sin.
John 1:12-13, John 3:16, John 11:25-26, Romans 6:23

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible is God’s inspired written Word that uniquely reveals who He is, who we are, and how we are to live in relationship with Him. The Bible is the authoritative source by which God guides people as they go through their daily lives.
2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Psalm 119:105

The Church

We believe the Church is the community to which anyone who follows Jesus Christ belongs, and to whom God has entrusted His message of love, forgiveness, and reconciliation to the human race.
Ephesians 2:19-22, Romans 12:4-5, 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

By God’s guiding hand, we continue to reach people for Christ by having five key distinctives that make Crossings the kind of place so many people call their church home:

EXCELLENCE

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord…” – Colossians 3:23
Our belief is that excellence honors God and inspires people. We know, too, that we are responsible for how we use the gifts and offerings we receive. For these reasons, we consider it imperative to do everything to the absolute best of our ability and with the attitude of Christ.

UNITY

“For just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.” – Romans 12:4-5
We believe unity is essential, and we focus our efforts on teaching the non-debatable principles of Scripture while leaving freedom for personal convictions related to non-essential doctrinal issues.

COMPASSION

“When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” – Matthew 9:36
When we view people like God views them, it drives us to love unconditionally and seek to serve them in any way possible. Our hearts should ache for those in need and it should move us to take action.

GENEROSITY

“All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need." – Acts 2:44-45
"You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. For God loves a person who gives cheerfully." – 2 Corinthians 9:7)
From the beginning of the Church, generosity has been a distinguishing attribute of Christ-followers. It is no different in this community. We believe God has given us everything we have, including hope for our future, so we want to give all we have joyfully and without reservation.

HUMILITY / TRANSPARENCY

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.” – Philippians 2:3-4
Realizing we can’t do life by ourselves, we encourage a culture of openness as we go through life’s journey. We recognize the need for God’s help and for community. We learn from others’ experiences and knowledge while sharing ours so others may benefit.

AS A CHRIST-CENTERED PEOPLE, WE WILL LIVE BY FAITH, BE A VOICE OF HOPE, AND BE KNOWN BY LOVE.
We want this vision to be front and center at all times, even if it means that we must not do some things that we could do. Our calling is clear and will continue to guide us into the future.


LIVE BY FAITH

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” - Hebrews 11:1
We believe:
  • Faith is first belief and then action (Hebrews 11).
  • Faith is available through life in Christ.
    “We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ.” – Romans 3:22
  • Faith is a choice.
    “Lord, increase our faith.” – Luke 17:5
  • Faith pleases God.
    “And without faith it is impossible to please God.” - Hebrews 11:6

BE A VOICE OF HOPE

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” -Romans 15:13

We are to be hope-givers and desire to:

  • Stay out of the arguments of the culture.
  • Focus on the greatest need of every person on this planet – and his name is Jesus.
  • Be in unity, relationally and spiritually.
  • Lead with love to people outside the church family, right where they are.

BE KNOWN BY LOVE

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16
“This is My commandment, that you love and unselfishly seek the best for one another, just as I have loved you.” – John 15:12
As believers in Christ, we are called to the highest form of love. Our desire is to love the way Jesus loved -- to love others like we have been loved by him. We want to be an extravagant demonstration of the love of Jesus Christ to this community and world.

Find & Follow Jesus


Crossings is dedicated to helping people find and follow Jesus. True transformation is only possible by following Jesus and experiencing his boundless love and forgiveness. It is our mission to create opportunities to encounter Jesus because he is the only way to salvation. He is the way, the truth, and the life.   Luke 19:10, Romans 5:8, John 3:16, John 14:6
