Now it’s “US”, not “us & them”

Kid's Corner

After nearly a year of prayer and planning, King’s Cross Church and Second Baptist Church have joined together as one local body under the name “King’s Cross Church!” We have determined that we are better together as one unified expression of Christ’s church for the advancement of God’s kingdom in NW Ohio and beyond. Marriage math is also merger math: 1+1=1. There is no more “us” and “them” between King’s Cross Church and Second Baptist. Now there is just “us”…

New Song This Sunday:
Our Salvation is Bound Up Together

In celebration of joining together with 2nd Baptist, we are introducing a song this Sunday called “Our Salvation is Bound Up Together” on our togetherness as the body of Christ. It’s a pretty simple refrain that can be learned in one sitting. But you can listen to the song by clicking the graphic above or button below.

QUESTION: With what attitude should we pray?

ANSWER*: With love, perseverance, and gratefulness; in humble submission to God’s will, knowing that, for the sake of Christ, he always hears our prayers.

*Children’s answer is the bold text



Philippians 4:19

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Life is full of things to be discouraged about, and it can be overwhelming. We believe that Jesus offers real help, hope, and healing in the difficulties of life. We believe that the power of God’s Word and Spirit offers hope of life change from the inside out. So we offer biblical counseling to those needing the comfort and wisdom of Scripture. While we believe God can work through various methods of counseling, our lead counselor is certified through the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC). We also have pastors and other counselors who have received training from Faith Biblical Counseling, and are able and willing to counsel according to the Scriptures. If you would like to explore meeting with one of our counselors, please fill out the contact form by clicking on the button below and we will try to match you with someone.


We would love to pray for you! Some people think that only major crises of life are worth praying for, but the truth is that everyone needs prayer for something. James 4:2 says that we do not have because we do not ask, and when we do we often have false or impure motives. So the first step is to ask. So please come and let us pray for you in person at our Sunday worship gathering. Or, if you would like prayer now, just click the button below and fill out the form and we will pray for you.
