With a vision of a new church in Randolph County, 24 charter members met for worship for the very first time on May 31, 1978 and Cross Road Baptist Church became a reality. On Sunday, June 4, the first Sunday of the new ministry, 65 were in attendance. In the early days of CRBC, the church met in the old VFW building until September 1979 when the present sanctuary was constructed. In 1982, the church the Cross Road Retirement Center was originated and construction began in 1983. On November 21, 1983 the first residents moved in and CRRC began a rich heritage of ministry. In 1992 a new Christian Life Center was dedicated and is continually used for ministry and community activities.
However, the dream of CRBC goes far beyond buildings. The dream and vision of the church is to be an evangelistic, mufti-faceted ministry and missions church taking the good news of Christ to our local community and around the world.
The name of the church was taken from Matthew 16:24 where Jesus told his disciples, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me." The theme of CRBC is "The Church that Cares" and the song is "Victory in Jesus."
If you visit one of our times of worship you will notice a cross behind the pulpit. It is made of glass that allows natural sunlight to shine through, making it a beautiful red. As we view the cross illuminated by the sun, we are constantly reminded of God's gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus, and His sustaining power. It is our desire that Cross Road Baptist Church will continue to be a "beacon of light on the mountain."
To proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our community and the world and to baptize believers into His Church through evangelism and missions; to lead members to a closer communion with God and equip them for ministry through discipleship; to provide fellowship opportunities for the encouragement of our members, so that in all things, God will be praised, glorified, and worshiped.
We believe that God, out of his love for men, sent Christ into the world to save sinners. We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, in which He taught and wrought mighty works and wonders as revealed in the four Gospels. We believe that Christ was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins, and was raised bodily from the dead on the third day. Later He ascended to the Father's right hand where He is the head of the Church and intercedes for believers, and from whence He is coming again personally, boldly, visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.
We believe that through his death, by his shed blood, Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Individuals are saved by placing their lives, trust and faith in the atoning work of Christ. Such salvation provides forgiveness for sins, an impartation of a new nature and a hope for eternal life that is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership, or man's effort. Salvation is a result of pure grace.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Person, is God and possesses all the divine attributes. He indwells all believers, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of salvation, and fills them in response to confession of sin and yieldedness. We believe that it is the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God, inspired and infallible, and the indwelling Holy Spirit.
