What we believe
We may never understand everything about God, but He has invited us to know Him. God has told us about Himself through His Word, the Bible. We believe the Bible is a perfect record of God’s revelation to man and is applicable for every area of our lives.
We want you to know that it doesn't matter who you are, where you're from, how many times you've been to church or even if you believe in God. We're just excited that you're here. To give you a better idea of who we are, we think you should know what we believe. After all, being honest and transparent is the best foundation for relationships.
You may agree with what we believe or you may not, but at least you will know where we stand. If you have a question, please ask us. We don't claim to have all the answers, but we believe in the God who does.
Connect to our Culture from a Christ-Centered Calling
“After Jesus had greeted them again, he said, "I am sending you, just as the Father has sent me.” (Jn 20:21 CEV)
“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mk 10:45 NLT)
“For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” (1 Cor 2:2 NIV)
In the postmodern culture, everyone is looking for "it" but no one seems to know where to find "it". All people search for peace, purpose, and hope in their lives. Unfortunately, many are not sure anything or anyone can give them what they're looking for.
Enter Cross Culture Church. We are a community of believers where Jesus is revealed in the lives of each person. Our desire is to be used by God to show people that a life built on the finished work of Christ on the cross is where they will find what they are searching for. We strive to live out Jesus' words: "If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it." (Matthew 16:25)
We want to make an impact by taking the cross to our culture, and taking our culture to the cross. At Cross Culture Church, we experience the liberating, satisfying, life-changing power of the cross and it is our desire to bring that power to a culture in need of freedom, joy, and hope.
When do you meet?
Any Sunday morning, feel free to join us at 10:00am as we kick off worship for adults and kids. We also have Life Groups that gather all over the Triangle experiencing community and working through life together. Life happens. Get connected.
What denomination are you?
We're really not a denomination at all, but we partner with the Southern Baptist Convention and the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina in local and global mission endeavors.
What is your story?
We were birthed in February 2008 out of a burden to be a group of followers of Jesus willing to lay aside personal preferences to do whatever is necessary to engage our culture with the message of Jesus Christ, and to be a church that crosses cultural barriers and brings people together for the glory of God.
Why do you meet in another church?
We prioritize people over property. We are a church for the community and Durham Memorial Baptist Church offers an amazing location that is central to a growing population of both churched and unchurched. It is our dream that Cross Culture can one day reach all of these people and make a real impact in their lives.
What about my kids?
Your kids are invited to join us in Cross Culture Kids. They will be welcomed into a children’s program that has been created with your child in mind. Your kids will be safe and have more fun than even thought possible in their very own worship experience. Our coaches are screened, trained and ready to serve your family.
How do I dress?
Some wear suits and some wear flip flops. In fact, Pastor Dan wears jeans most Sunday's. We think God is a lot more concerned about what is on the inside than what is on the outside. So for us it's not about the clothes, it's about being part of the body of Christ and gathering to learn His word.
What kind of music do you play?
Cross Culture follows a more contemporary style of worship. With a live band each week, we lead worship in songs like Our God, Forever, Bound for Glory, Let the Praises Ring, and many more.
Where should I park?
As our guest we have reserved parking just for you. Follow the guest parking signs to find to guest parking.
