OUR PURPOSE


Crosspoint Bible church is a body of Believers in Jesus Christ that:

– Meets regularly to:

  • Glorify God through corporate worship;
  • Teach God’s Word;
  • Encourage one another to love and good works

– Is actively involved in equipping believers to make disciples of Jesus Christ throughout the world.

OUR HISTORY


Crosspoint has been serving Omaha, Nebraska and growing into its current ministry for over 50 years. It seeks to disciple the believers, and through them, impact the Omaha area and the world with a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

The church began as a church plant in the Florence area of Omaha in the 1960’s. In the early 1970’s, it became Evangelical Bible Church, purchasing the current property in the northwest area of the city, at 78th and Fort. In 1972, the original building was dedicated, and the first full-time pastor called. As God blessed Evangelical Bible Church with new people, the size of the church and building grew. In the late 70’s the building size doubled, and more than doubled again in the early 90’s.

In 2014, Evangelical Bible Church became Crosspoint Bible Church. Throughout its history, Crosspoint has been served by three full-time lead pastors. Until the search for our fourth lead pastor is completed, the church is being served by an interim lead pastor.

In 2017-18, the most recent expansion and extensive renovation was completed. A new parking lot, nursery, resource center, foyer fellowship area, and main entry drop-off canopy were added. In addition to numerous infrastructure improvements, the church office area was also expanded, adding sorely needed support and staff area.

Since its beginning, Crosspoint Bible Church has been affiliated with the Fellowship of Evangelical Bible Churches, an association that stands firm on the fundamental doctrines of salvation by faith alone and the inspiration of Scripture. The FEBC is not a “denomination,” but an association of church. Crosspoint Bible Church can structure ministry to accomplish its own discipleship goals, and through this, impact the Omaha Metropolitan area and the world.

OUR BELIEFS


ABOUT GOD

We believe in the one true living God who is perfect, infinite, and eternal, and who coexists in three persons, namely God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; John 4:24).

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, that He came in the flesh and took upon Himself the form of man to teach us and to redeem us by suffering and dying in our place on the Cross of Calvary. We believe that He was raised from the dead (bodily) for our justification and is now at the right hand of God interceding for us (John 1:1-3; Hebr. 1:5; 1 Pet. 2:24).

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that God the Holy Spirit, often referred to as the third person of the Trinity, convicts, regenerates, empowers and indwells the believer (Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor. 6:19; Gal. 5:22-23).

ABOUT THE BIBLE

We believe that the Bible, in its entirety, is the Word of God – true, inspired and without error in its original autographs (2 Tim.3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:21).

ABOUT SATAN, SIN, SALVATION

We believe that Satan tempts, seduces and accuses us, but that he was judged at the cross and will ultimately be defeated and cast into the lake of fire (Job 1:6-7; Isa. 14:12-15; John 16:11; Hebr. 2:14; Rev. 20:10-15).
We believe that all people are born sinful and in need of redemption (Gen. 3:1-24; Rom. 3:23, 5:12). We believe that salvation is a free gift of God’s grace, offered to us because Jesus Christ paid our debt on the cross. We believe that this gift is received personally by faith in Jesus Christ, and that makes us secure, delivers us from the guilt, penalty and power of sin, makes us righteous before God, and promises us future glorification in God’s presence (John 3:14-18; 10:17-18; Acts 20:21; Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 2:11-14).

ABOUT THE RETURN OF CHRIST

We believe in the personal, visible, imminent, premillennial return of Christ, with the rapture occurring before the tribulation (Acts 1:11; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; 1 Pet. 4:7; Rev. 3:10; 19:11-18).
