What does Cross Style Church believe?
Our basic belief can be found in the name of our church. We have discovered through the Word and personal relationship with Christ an attitude which is the basis of the Kingdom of God. It is the attitude of the cross. Christ did not live His own life, but surrendered His life to the Father. This surrender was so complete it could be called “death.” Thus the death of Christ on the cross was only a physical display of the style of His life. Jesus did not operate on His own or out of His own resource, but lived in the continual flow of what the Father would do through Him.
If we produce a Christianity which is a product of our own discipline and action, we have not produced Christianity but a religion. Through the indwelling of the Spirit of Christ, He will live His life through us. The wonder of Christianity is the outside God who has come to be inside our personal lives. He is sourcing us which enables us to live far beyond ourselves. This intimate relationship with the indwelling Christ is the heart of the belief of the Cross Style Church.
