Our Story

Cross Pointe Ocala began a few years ago in a circle of about ten people who were ready to see church be more than an organization, something to attend on Sundays, or what Christians are just supposed to do. The families who began the journey wanted to experience Christ with one another and then wanted to share that with the rest of the world. 

 

The journey, which included renting space at Central Florida Community College, hosting summer day camps to some of the poorest Marion County residents, baptizing in a small pool after church services, and seeing people connect to God, to others, and to the world, has validated that vision - that dream that ten people in a circle had. Our story has just begun and is nowhere near its completion. We invite you to be part of the story, a story that is committed to reaching our community and our world for Jesus Christ. 

OUR GOal: To COnnect People TO God, TO Each OTher, and TO The World

No matter what your story is or where you are in your spiritual journey, you can find a place at Cross Pointe. We are completely committed to helping people connect with the God of the universe, connect with other people in meaningful and encouraging relationships, and connect with the world by serving them and sharing the Good News of Jesus with them. 


Two of the main ways we do this is through our Community Groups and our Sunday morning services. The best way to get plugged in at Cross Pointe is to connect to one of these two gatherings.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

1. The Trinity

 

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4)

 

2. God the Father

 

The first person of the Godhead orders and directs all things according to His own purpose and pleasure. He authored, created, and sustains all things in the universe without any means other than His own pure power. By His grace, He involves himself in the affairs of men, hears and answers prayer, and saves from sin and death all that come to Him through Christ. (Matthew 6:9, Ephesians 1:3, John 5:19) 

 

3. Jesus the Son

 

He eternally existed as the second person of the Godhead. By His virgin birth, He came to earth as fully God and fully man, living a sinless life. His death on the cross made atonement for man’s sin, evidenced by his bodily resurrection from the dead. He physically ascended to the right hand of God the Father, and He will return in power and glory. (John 1:14, Colossians 2:9, Acts 2:32) 

 

4. The Holy Spirit

 

The third part of the Godhead convicts people of sin, regenerates, indwells, instructs, and sets apart believers into a holy life. We encourage all believers to seek a life of obedience to the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We believe this step is essential for empowering believers for victorious living and ministry through the gifts given by the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:5, Acts 1:8, I Corinthians 3:16) 

 

5. The Bible

 

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the complete, divinely inspired, infallible Word of God. The Bible is the supreme authority and guide for our Christian faith and living. (II Peter 1:20, Hebrews 4:12) 

 

6. The Nature of Humanity

 

Humanity was directly created in God’s image, voluntarily fell into sin by personal disobedience to the will of God; consequently, all people are spiritually dead apart from Jesus Christ. The fall of humanity was a once-for-all historical fact. Its effect spread to everyone, each of whom is born with a sinful nature and is in need of salvation. (Ephesians 2:1, Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23-24)

 

7. The Necessity of Salvation

 

Salvation is by grace, a gift of God apart from works. Salvation requires repentance, a turning from one’s own way to God’s way. All who receive Jesus Christ are born again, regenerated by the Holy Spirit, and become the children of God. Our relationship with Christ is secure not by our own actions, but by the sustaining power and love of God. We will manifest true salvation by a changed life. (Titus 2:11, I John 1:9, I Peter 2:2)

 

8. The Church

 

The church is the body of all believers consisting of all born-again persons without respect to race, culture, or background. Directed by Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit, the Church is taking the good news of salvation to the whole world. Our church is inclusive rather than exclusive and stresses love for God and one another, the unity of all believers, and obedience to the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 2:19-21, Ephesians 3:10) 

 

9. Eternity

 

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. (John 3:16, John 14:17, Romans 6:23, Romans 8:17-18, Revelation 20:15, I Corinthians 2:7-9)
