Cross of Christ has been sharing the good news of Jesus
in the Treasure Valley since 1994.
Here's what we're all about.
God made everything and everyone. It was perfect. But the perfection didn’t last long. With human disobedience and selfishness came the awful reality of sin. Because of sin, things are wrong in the world, people do bad things, and everyone dies.
God’s heart broke when he saw what happened to his perfect people in his perfect world. So he became the solution. He sent his Son, Jesus, to live the perfect life we could never live. He sent Jesus to die and face the punishment for the sins of the world. He sent Jesus to conquer and win when he rose from the dead on Easter.
The good news
God loves you. He loves you so much he would move heaven and earth to rescue you from your sin. What he wants more than anything is for you to live with him in his perfect heaven forever. That’s why he sent Jesus. That’s why he gives us his Bible. That’s why he’s guiding everything in this world—to get more and more souls connected to Jesus. Nothing is required of you. Nothing is expected. Believe in Jesus and God’s love, acceptance, forgiveness, and eternal life are yours. This is the gospel. This is good news. Believe it!
We believe there is only one true God who is holy, eternal, and has all power and wisdom. In the Bible, God reveals himself as Triune - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Bible is God's Word. It's true and without error.
We believe that God created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them.
Man + Woman
We believe that men and women are a special creation of God, created in God's own image.
We believe that we lost the image of God when Adam + Eve gave into the temptation of Satan in the Garden of Eden. This separated us from God, unable to reconcile ourselves to him.
We believe that the gospel is the good news that a loving God sent Jesus Christ to take away the sins of all people, fully and freely given.
We believe Jesus was born of the virgin Mary, and that he suffered and died on the cross to pay for all of our sins.
We believe Jesus rose on Easter morning, conquering death. And because he rose, so will we.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit creates faith in our hearts through the gospel.
We believe that there is one holy, Christian church, made up of all who believe in Jesus.
Baptism + Holy Communion
We believe we become God's children through baptism. We believe God's love and forgiveness is ours in the Lord's supper.
We believe Jesus is ruling all things for the good of his people. And that we have peace because of what was done for us, on the Cross of Christ.
