Crossroads Church was formed in 2004 from a church-plant. In 2009, Pastor Derick Amsler transitioned from the Youth Pastor to Lead Pastor. During the first 11 years of the church, Crossroads was a portable church meeting in different venues throughout Jefferson County. New Hope Church donated their building to Crossroads at the end of 2012. After two years of renovation, Crossroads was able to occupy their first permanent location in Shepherdstown, WV at the beginning of 2015.
Since 2015, Crossroads’ attendance has gone from an average of 175 during one experience to 1,000+ across 4 WKND experiences. While we celebrate God’s faithfulness and blessings, Crossroads’ also strives to reach the 1.
- The Scriptures are true, authoritative and sufficient.
Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21
ONE TRUE GOD
- There is one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-6; Isaiah 46:9-10; John 17:3; 1 Timothy 2:5, 1 Corinthians 8:4-6
SIN and SALVATION
- All humanity, Christ excluded, is sinful by birth and action, and Jesus Christ died as the sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for sin. Only through faith in the person and works of Jesus Christ and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God and experience true life and joy.
Romans 3:12-21, 23, 5:8, 7:18; Ephesians 2:1-3
- Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will one day physically return, and only those who turn from sin and to Jesus in faith and repentance will be raised to eternal reward.
Matthew 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-53; John 11:24-25, 14:3; 1 Corinthians 15:12-34; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Hebrews 9:28; 1 John 3:2; Revelation 1:7
