Our History


The Mission of Crossroads Church is to simply "be and build disciples of Christ."


Crossroads Church, a church plant of Palmetto Baptist Church, the Fairburn Baptist Association, and the Georgia Baptist Convention, held its first worship service on March 28, 1989, at White Oak Elementary School. Ken Adams was called as the pastor shortly after the start of the church. After three years of meeting in different schools, Crossroads Church purchased twenty acres of property on Highway 154 and built its first permanent building. Since that time, Crossroads has grown in numbers but more importantly in faith, as we have seen God provide and work miracles in people’s lives. We praise God for what He has done in our past and look forward to the future.

Our Beliefs

What We Believe About The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to all men written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Being inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.


Timothy 3:16 2 Peter 1:20- 21, 2 Timothy 1:13, Psalm 119:105, Psalm 119:160, Psalm 12:6, Proverbs 30:5

What We Believe About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.


Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14

What We Believe About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless, human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.


Matthew 1:22-23, Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-5, John 14:10-30, Hebrews 4:14-15, 1 Corinthians15: 3-4, Romans 1:3-4, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Timothy 6:14-15, Titus 2:13

What We Believe About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.


2 Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 2:12, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Ephesians 1:13, Galatians 5:25, Ephesians 5:18

What We Believe About Man

Man is made in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God.


Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:3-6, Isaiah 53:6a, Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:1-2

What We Believe About Salvation

Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer for forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.


Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 14:6, John 1:12, Titus 3:5, Galatians 3:26, Romans 5:1

What We Believe About Eternity

Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence.


John 3:16, 1 John 2:25, 1 John 5:11-13, Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:15

Crossroads Church is a member of the Southern Baptist Denomination, and we participate with fellow Southern Baptist Churches within the Cooperative Program. Crossroads Church is a local autonomous body of believers that is organized and governed by the model of the early church described in the New Testament. Crossroads is committed to being a New Testament Church that will reach a contemporary culture.

Our Values

Culturally Relevant

The core value of being culturally relevant means that we do ministry in a way that identifies with contemporary culture without compromising the truth of God’s Word. In 1 Corinthians 9:22 Paul says, “I have become all things to all men so that by all means I might save some.” Like Paul, we identify with our culture through things like casual dress, music, dramas, and media that we might be better able to reach our culture.

Relationship Centered

We believe that ministry and life should be done in the context of relationships. People reach people, people disciple people, people connect people, and people help train people for leadership (Philippians 2:4). At Crossroads we want people to be our focus, and we want people to be more important than programs.

Organized For Growth

We seek to structure our ministry to help people and the church to continue growing. We believe that a healthy church is a growing church. That means that as long as we are healthy, we will be in constant need of an organizational structure that aids and allows for growth. In Acts 6:7 the church in Jerusalem had just made a change in their organizational structure and then the Scripture says, “…the number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly…” We seek to continually structure our church so that we may see the number of disciples increase rapidly.

We prioritize the use of small groups just like the Scriptures teach (Acts 5:42) because we believe they are the most effective way to do ministry. We are a small group church—not just a church with small groups.

Small Groups Prioritized

The Bible teaches that church leadership should be based on spiritual qualifications, not political qualification. In Exodus 18:21 Moses is told to ” . . . select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain . . .” At Crossroads, we seek to place people who are spiritually qualified in leadership positions.

Spiritually Qualified Leaders

The church is a spiritual organization and should be managed from a spiritual perspective. Prayer, faith, and the Spirit’s leading have always been the way God directs His people. The church does not need human wisdom but supernatural wisdom that only comes from God.

Rely on Prayer, Faith, & The Holy Spirit

The best way for the church to do ministry is when believers serve within their area of spiritual giftedness and passion. We are a church committed to helping people discover their passions and spiritual gifts so they can be more effective in serving (Romans 12:6).

Operates By Gifts & Passions

We desire for our church to be a place where people of different backgrounds find love and acceptance (1st Peter 2:17), and we welcome everyone to our church. An attitude of acceptance, however, is not to be confused with approval. We may accept a person and still not approve his lifestyle if it contradicts Scripture.

Attitude of Acceptance

We believe Christ wanted the church to be a movement of multiplying disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). At Crossroads, our purpose is to “Be and Build” disciples of Christ by helping people move from babies in their faith to mature adults

Disciple-Making Focus

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and our sole authority for life (2nd Timothy 3:16). Everything we do at Crossroads must stay true to God’s Word. We use the Bible as our standard and our guide.

Scriptural Authority


Church Planting Network

At Crossroads Church we believe that God has called us to “fully proclaim the gospel of Christ,” meaning we take the message of Jesus to our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8).

We believe the most biblical, and therefore the most effective means of accomplishing this call is through the ministry of church planting. We also believe that the ministry of church planting becomes a powerful movement when local churches network together to plant more churches.

Our goal as a local church is to see churches planted all over our state, in every state in the country, and on every continent of the world by planting churches that will network together to plant more churches.
