"...the preaching of the cross...is the power of God"

1 Corinthians 1:18

From its beginnings in 1938,  the rich heritage of Crosstown Baptist Church has remained the same.

We believe the Bible (Old & New Testaments) is the inerrant, verbally inspired Word of God, there's One and Only One True God, we believe in the full deity and true humanity of Jesus Christ, and we believe in the personality and and deity of the Holy Spirit.

We encourage anyone to join us for worship. Read our calendar for upcoming events in the current month.

We believe that you can know for certain that you are going to heaven. God tells us, "These things have I written unto you...that you may know that you have eternal life..." (1 Jn 5"13).
