Who We Are

We exist to seek first Christ and His kingdom,
for the glory of God,
and the joy of all nations and generations.

King’s Cross Church is a spiritual family united by the good news that “God saves sinners.”  This good news of the gospel is about God.  Saving is what God does. Sinners are who He saves.

Our mission is to multiply gospel-centered disciples and churches to be worshipers who delight in Christ, witnesses who declare His cross, and servants and family who display His love.

If you join us on Sundays expect to find welcoming people, singing, praying, and Bible teaching that shows how seeing Jesus in the whole Bible can transform your whole life.
