About Crossover Church of Rosedale

The mission of Crossover Church of Rosedale is:

"Love God. Love His Word. Love People"

We accomplish this vision by a commitment to faithful bible study, prayer, and evangelism. Our goal is to make disciples of all nations! Our Worship service regularly consists of expositional preaching and music that is faithful to the Scriptures! We are a church that believes that fruitful discipleship takes place in the fellowship of other believers, therefore we are committed to small group Bible studies on Sundays and throughout the midweek!

The church was in serious decline 6 years ago, but God has been gracious and the church has been thriving since the Lord had mercy on us all those years ago! We are a church primarily filled with young families. We have an average of about 230 in attendance every Sunday morning! We are planning to move to two services in the year 2025.

We are not a perfect church, but by God's grace we are trying to be a faithful church.
