About CROSS

THE PURPOSE

 

Spread God’s Word, and

 

Facilitate the spiritual growth of the believers.

 

Christian resources are provided free of charge to Missionaries, Pastors, and laymen all around the world.

We believe that spreading the Word of God, AND the spiritual growth of the saints, can be greatly facilitated by establishing Christian Resource centers especially among the less privileged across the globe.

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

 1 Peter 4:10

STATEMENT OF FAITH

 
OF THE HOLY BIBLE

We believe that the Holy Bible in its 66 books was written by men under the divine inspiration, that it contains the inerrant and eternal Word of God and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creed and opinions should be weighted. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21)

OF THE TRUE GOD

We believe that there is one, living true God, whose name is Jehovah, the Maker, and Supreme Ruler of heaven and the universe, who exists as an infinitely intelligent Spirit, hold and glorious, everlasting, all-powerful, all-knowing, and everywhere present; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection, and execution distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (Genesis 1:1,2:7; John 4:24; Hebrews 1:8)

OF JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life as a man of earth, died on the cross for our sins, and was resurrected from the grave. He bodily ascended into heave and is now the Advocate to the Father for all believers. (John 1:1-5; John 10:30)

 

STATEMENT OF FAITH

OF SIN

Mankind was created in perfection and holiness, but by voluntary transgression, represented in the disobedience of Adam and Eve fell from the holy and happy state, in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners, positively inclined to evil, utterly void of holiness required by the law of God, and therefore under just condemnation to eternal damnation, without defense or excuse. (Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12)

OF SALVATION

In order to be saved, a person must be regenerated or born again. This regeneration consists of confessing one’s sing and accepting Jesus as Savior and Lord. This salvation is offered freely by grace through faith to all who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. (Acts 16:30-32; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-10)

OF THE CHURCH

The church consists of a local body of baptized believers, which is the Body of Christ of which He is the head. (Matthew 16:15-19; Acts 2:41-42; Revelation 2 &3)

STATEMENT OF FAITH

OF THE SECOND COMING

God, in His own time, will bring the world to an end. We believe in the imminent rapture of the Chruch where in the dead in Christ and all believers will be caught up to meet Jesus in the air. Following the tribulation period, Jesus Christ will personally return to earth and with His saints reign on earth for one thousand years. After the millennial reign, believers will spend eternity in Heaven in their glorified bodies and non-believers will spend everlasting punishment in Hell. (Acts 1:11; 24:15; Matthew 13:49; 25:31-46; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17)

OF EVANGELISM

Christ’s commission is to go and preach the gospel to all the world. It is the duty of every believer to extend the gospel and win the lost to Christ. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 1:8)

THE COMMITMENT

Our commitment is to provide Christian resources including Bibles, New Testaments, Bible study guides, tracts, commentaries, concordances, sermons on tape, Sunday school literature, and other training materials to the less privileged.

“Why should we send Bibles and materials to other countries?” This is a question we have been asked. The only answer is that  Jesus commanded us as followers to do just exactly that- to go and tell all nations. The following verses from the Scriptures sum up the commitment of CROSS Ministries:

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you;…”  Matthew 28:19-20

“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…” 2 Peter 3:18

It is the belief of this ministry that if believers will be faithful in the spreading of God’s Word, the Holy Spirit will utilize the printed Word in convicting sinners of their spiritual conditions and their need for Christ.
