  • We believe that the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments in their original autographs are verbally inspired, fully inerrant, and providentially preserved for God’s people today (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
  • We believe the Scriptures are the absolute and infallible authority in all matters of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
  • We believe in one God; omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, immutable, infinite, and perfect in holiness, justice, love, mercy and grace; who is one in nature and essence, yet exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three persons are co-equal, co-substantial, co-eternal; have the same attributes, nature, perfections, and are worthy of the same worship, confidence and obedience. God is the Creator of all things, having created heaven and earth in six literal days. The first person of the Trinity has revealed Himself as the Father Who exercises supreme authority over all things and Who cares deeply for the world with an everlasting love (Genesis 1:1-31; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 12:29; John 1:1-3, 14; Acts 5:3, 4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:13; Revelation 5:13).
  • We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, who became man without ceasing to be God, that He might reveal God and save sinful man (John 1:1, 14; Luke 1:35, 19:10).
  • We believe Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death and the shedding of His blood on the cross as a sinless, vicarious sacrifice, and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Romans 3:24, 25; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:6; 1 Peter 3:15).
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven and is now at the right hand of God, where, as our great high priest, He fulfills the ministry of representative, intercessor and advocate. He is the head of His body, the church (Acts 1:9, 10; Hebrews 7:25, 9:24; Romans 8:34; 1 John 2:1, 2).
  • We believe in the personal and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rapture His church, and later in His second coming to establish His Kingdom on earth (John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 4:13-18; Revelation 3:10; 19:11-16; Zechariah 14:4-11).
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. We believe He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; that He regenerates believers and baptizes them into the Body of Christ; that He indwells and seals all believers unto the day of redemption (John 16:8-11; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 1:13-14).

  • We believe that He is the divine teacher who instructs, guides, comforts, empowers, and sanctifies the believer, and that it is the privilege and duty of all believers to be filled with the Holy Spirit (John 16:13; Ephesians 5:18; 1 John 2:20, 27).

  • We do not hold to a charismatic view of the Holy Spirit's ministry, nor do we condone the misuse of the gift of tongues and healings.

  • We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, reflected in his will, emotions, personality, conscience, creativity, and morality. By imparting His image, God made it possible for man to know, worship, and relate to Him (Genesis 1:27; 5:1-2; 9:6; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Colossians 3:10; James 3:9).
  • We believe that God created man and woman in their assigned gender without confusion and without transference, in a permanent state, in order that they might be able to engage in sexual relations with the opposite sex only, and only within the state of matrimony (Genesis 1:27, 2:24; Hebrews 13:4).
  • We believe that Adam was the federal head of the human race. He transgressed God’s law in the Garden of Eden. By his sin, the entire human race was plunged into sin and death. As a result, all men are alienated from God, dead in trespasses and sin, depraved in nature, and are under the righteous judgment and wrath of God (Romans 5:12-21).
  • We believe that all men stand in need of forgiveness of sin and the new birth by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:13; Romans 3:22, 23, 5:12; Ephesians 4:18; John 8:42-44; Mark 7:21-23).
  • We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by His grace alone; that salvation is not merited nor secured in part or in whole by any virtue or work of man; that the remission of our sins was accomplished by the work of Christ through the shedding of His blood on the cross and is secured by all who exercise personal faith in Christ alone; that all true believers have salvation as a present possession, son-ship in the family of God, deliverance and security from all condemnation, and every spiritual resource for life and godliness (John 1:12; John 3:16, 6:28, 29; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:18,19).
  • We believe that those who profess Christ as Savior but do not exhibit these qualities need to examine themselves whether they are in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5), and we affirm both. God's sovereignty and man's responsibility in salvation (John 6:37).
  • We believe that all those once born again by the Spirit of God are kept by God’s power alone and are thus secure in Christ forever (John 5:24; 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 35-39; 1 Peter 3:15).
  • We believe that while it is the privilege of the believer to rejoice in the assurance of his
    salvation, the grace of God motivates believers toward good works and does not give them license to sin (Romans 6:1-3; Romans 13:13, 14; Titus 2:11-15).
  • We believe that Christians are free from the guilt and dominion of sin, from the curse of the moral law, from bondage to Satan, and from eternal punishment because they are in Christ; that such freedom allows believers to serve the Lord in righteousness and must not be misused as an occasion for careless living (Galatians 5:13); that the Christian faces the conflict between his new spiritual nature and the old sinful tendencies. The Holy Spirit provides victory of the new nature over the old nature (Romans 6:13, 8:12, 13; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 3:10; 1 Peter 1:14-16; 1 John 3:5-9).
  • We believe in the separation of believers unto Christ and from the world so as to have no fellowship with the evil works of sin but rather to reprove them; that the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord; that separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures and practices, and all wicked associations is commanded by God (2 Timothy 3:15; Romans 12:1, 2, 14:13; 1 John 2:15-17; 2 John 9, 11; 2 Corinthians 8:7-13; Philippians 2:12, 13).
  • We believe that it should be the desire of all believers to practice good works in obedience to the revealed Word of God, who will richly reward these good works. These good works have no part in salvation, but are a manifestation of the redeemer’s love for God and a demonstration to the world as evidence of his or her inward change of heart (Matthew 5:16; 1 Corinthians 3:11-16, 6:12-20, 8:7-13, 12:31; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 2:8- 10; Philippians 2:12-13; Colossians 3:17; James 2:14).
  • We believe that every believer is immediately baptized by the Spirit at the moment of
    regeneration into the Church; the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4:4, 5:25-32; Matthew 16:18; Acts 2:47; 1 Corinthians 12:12, 13).
  • We believe that all the various members of this one spiritual Body should assemble
    themselves together in local churches for worship, prayer, fellowship, teaching, united
    testimony and the observance of the ordinances of our Lord (Hebrews 10:25; Acts 2:41-47); that it is the mission of the local church to fulfill the Great Commission; that local churches should cooperate and fellowship only with those who adhere to the basic fundamentals of the faith (Jude 3; Galatians 1:6-10; Philippians 1:27; 2 John 7-11).
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:46; John 5:28,29; 11:25, 26; Revelation 20: 5-6, 12-15).

  • We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain after death in conscious
    misery until the second resurrection. Then, with soul and body reunited, they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment and shall be cast into the lake of fire to suffer everlasting, conscious punishment (Luke 16:19-26; Matthew 25:41-46; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Jude 6-7; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 20:14).

  • We believe that the soul of the redeemed is at the moment of death absent from the body and present with the Lord. There, in conscious bliss, they await the first resurrection when soul and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord. We believe that every Christian will give an account of himself at the Judgment Seat of Christ for the works he or she has done in the body. (Luke 23:43; Revelation 20:4-6; 2 Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; 3:21; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).
    We believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ first in the rapture of the church (followed by the seven-year period of the Tribulation), and then in His second coming to earth with His saints where He will set up His millennial kingdom on the earth. At the close of the Millenium, the Great White Throne Judgment will take place, followed immediately by the eternal state of the new heavens and the new earth for the redeemed, and the lake of fire for unbelievers (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10, Revelation 19:11-16, 20:4-6, 20:11-15, 21:1-5).

  • Cross Impact is an equipping ministry that seeks to support and serve local churches in reaching college and single adults. We seek to cooperate with churches in a spirit of love and truth for the advancement of the Gospel. We are committed to serving only with local churches who can agree to the aforementioned doctrinal statement. In like manner, we are committed to maintaining a separation from churches associated with movements that compromise or misapply the Gospel and the Scripture, as well as all movements or religions apart from Biblical Christianity.
