What We Believe

Crosstown Fellowship Church adheres to Southern Baptist Convention’s Baptist Faith and Message. What we believe about:

God

We believe in one God existent in three distinct persons.

Deuteronomy 6:4, 1 Timothy 2:5, Genesis 1:2, Genesis 1:26, Genesis 31:11-12, John 5:18-46, John 10:10, Acts 5

The Bible

We believe that God reveals His plans and Himself primarily through Scripture. We believe that all 66 books of the Bible are, inerrant, infallible, and inspired by God. 

2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Peter 3:15-16

The Creation of Mankind and The Dilemma 

God made humans both male and female in His own image. 

Genesis 1:26-28

Adam chose to disobey God causing himself and everyone born after him to fall into a state of perpetual sin. This state of perpetual sin causes enmity between God and mankind that mankind cannot account for on his own. 

Isaiah 64:6, Romans 3:10-19

Salvation

God’s answer to mankind’s dilemma was the gift of His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus is fully man and fully God which makes Him the perfect sacrifice to solve mankind’s dilemma. 

When He died on the cross, our sins were placed on Him and God’s punishment for our sins were poured upon Him. Thus his death satisfies God’s wrath. After Jesus died, He was raised from the dead.

Genesis 3:15, Genesis 12:3, Deuteronomy 18:15-20, Isaiah 53, Romans 3:21-26

Therefore salvation is provided to man by grace alone, through faith in Christ alone. When a person turns from their sin and believes in Jesus as the sufficient sacrifice for them, they are saved from God’s wrath, reconciled to Him, and are given the power to live a life in honor of God through the indwelling Holy Spirit.

John 1:1, John 14:6, Romans 6:5-11, Ephesians 2:8-9, 2 Corinthians 5:17-21

Eternity

Heaven is the eternal resting place for those who believe in Jesus Christ for eternal salvation. 

Revelation 21:1

Hell is a real place of eternal torment created for fallen angels and those that have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. 

Matthew 25:41, Revelations 20

Baptism

Baptism is to be immersed in water and brought back up 

Mark 1:10

It identifies a believer with Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection 

Romans 6:1-7, Colossians 2:11-12

Baptism is performed in the name of the Trinity

Matthew 28:19-20

Baptism is a public profession of an inward faith in Jesus and His work on the cross 

Acts 2:41, Acts 8:12, Galatians 3:27

Baptism, ordained by our Lord, is therefore done in obedience to Christ and is thus a sign of true repentance and discipleship.
Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:38

Communion

Communion was instituted by Jesus himself and is done to celebrate and proclaim the Lord’s death

1 Corinthians 11:23-32

Eschatologically, it points to the banquet when Jesus returns for His bride 

1 Corinthians 19:9

When it is taken, the people of God should examine their hearts before the Lord and confess sin

1 Corinthians 11:28
