As the family at Chapel of the Cross, our mission is to:
- SHARE the Gospel
- SEEK the Lost
- STUDY God's Word
- STRENGTHEN One Another
The Bible is the Holy, inspired Word of God without errors. It is historically accurate and true. It is the only source for Christian doctrine (teachings).
In the Triune God: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are one God, the Holy Trinity.
The heart and center of our faith is that we are saved by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ. We can do nothing to earn God's love or our salvation. God's grace is a free gift through the life, suffering, death and glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Through God's Word and the waters of Baptism, God come to us and adopts us as His forgiven children. This gift is for all people - infants, children and adults.
Through the Lord's Supper (Holy Communion), Jesus Christ, as He says, is truly (not symbolically) present in the bread and the wine. Through participation in this holy meal, God seals all His promises for us: the forgiveness of sins, strength in the faith for the life and the certain promise of eternal life with Him.
Jesus Christ will return some day. We do not know the day or time. We live with the sense of urgency of sharing the Gospel - the Good News for all people. Through His suffering, death and glorious resurrection Jesus Christ's victory over sin, death and hell is now our victory. Heaven is our home.
