Our beliefs

CROSSPOINT is part of the International Church Of The Foursquare Gospel. 

We as a church are interdenominational in spirit, evangelical in message, international in project.

The Foursquare Declaration of Faith, which lays out our basic doctrine, was drafted by Foursquare Founder, Aimee Semple McPherson. Presented here is an abbreviated version:

The Holy Scriptures

We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16,17)

The Eternal Godhead

We believe God is Triune: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience, he fell from innocence and purity (Romans 5:12)

The Plan of Salvation

We believe that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe in Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8)

Salvation Through Grace

We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8)

Repentance and Acceptance

We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a wholehearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (1 John 1:9)

The New Birth

We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20)

Daily Christian Living

We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1)

Baptism and Communion

We believe that Baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matthew 28:19). We believe in the commemoration of the Lord's Table (Communion) by the bread and juice of the vine as representation and real evidence of the presence of God in our lives 

(1 Corinthians 11:24,25)

Baptism with the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that His incoming is in the same manner as in biblical days (Acts 2:4)

The Spirit-Filled Life

We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32)

The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian, and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (1 Corinthians 12:1-11)

Moderation

We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him or her into the extremes of fanaticism (Philippians 4:5, NKJV)

Divine Healing

We believe that diving healing is the power of Christ to heal the physically sick in answer to the prayer of faith 

(James 5:14-16)

The Second Coming of Christ

We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (1 Thessalonians 4:16,17)

Church Relationship 

We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible Body of Christ (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25)

Civil Government

We believe rulers should be upheld at all times, except in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5)

The Final Judgment

We believe that all shall some day stand before the Judgement Seat of God, and there receive eternal life, or death (2 Corinthians 5:10)

Heaven

We believe that heaven is a glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17)

Hell

We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Savior (Revelation 20:10,15)

Evangelism

We believe that soul-winning is the most important responsibility of the Church (James 5:20)

Tithes and Offerings

We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7)
