Disciple-Making Made Simple
 
Cross Waves Church exists to help people return to the first-century method of making disciples. Cross Waves discovered that removing the church building and using your home like the early church in the New Testament, allows you to be the disciple-maker. 

The Cross Waves Disciple-Making process allows you to show people how to follow the Great Commission and Great Commandment.

If making disciples in your life is a priority, then we would love to partner with you. If you are willing to open up your home, we will show you the simple process the New Testament gives you in making disciples.
 
How Cross Waves Started
 

Hilary says...

"What I like about Cross Waves is the fellowship around dinner (good conversations, good food, which helps to grow strong bonds within those relationships/friendships). We have an intimate prayer time (time for everyone to share their prayer requests with more explanation). I enjoy the Messages (practical to everyone's life - newer and older Christians can relate). I learn much through the discussion time (a great way to get other people's outlook on what they took from the message... Sometimes it makes you think differently about things). I have grown through the Share Events (fun time for nearby groups to meet up and enjoy good fellowship with other believers) and Serve Events (a time to be great witnesses within our community on a more regular basis... able to give more since there is very little to no overhead costs because of using homes instead of actual buildings). The Cross Waves atmosphere is all-around a more intimate setting to grow closer to God with fellow believers. Lastly, I like the video messages (makes it easy to follow along and stay on track with the group if you have to miss due to illness or emergency)."
 

CROSS WAVES IS "OLD SCHOOL!"

We follow the New Testament model; we meet in homes, and study the Bible after a good meal. The weekly Cross Waves service provides quality worship music, a Bible lesson taught by seminary trained teachers, and discussion questions so people can dialogue in a comfortable environment.

CROSS WAVES IS SIMPLE!

Each weekly HotSpot starts with the meal, the Bible, and a TV just like the New Testament church (okay, we admit it, we added the TV). After eating, and a short message, each HotSpot discusses questions together. No big productions, just a meal in the Bible (imagine, no more being asked to serve in the nursery).

CROSS WAVES IS CONTAGIOUS!"

It is so much easier to get friends and family to attend a HotSpot than it is to get them to visit a brick and mortar church on Sunday. Food, music, a comfortable environment, and inspiring discussions are an engaging invitation.

CROSS WAVES SPENDS MONEY ON MINISTRY NOT MORTGAGES!

Since Cross Waves does not own or have rent or mortgage payments, the majority of contributions go to ministry, not for mortgages or building upkeep. Each HotSpot has money to serve their community as it chooses.

CROSS WAVES IS CONVENIENT

Most HotSpots meet on a weeknight, so weekends are free. (Check out why meeting on Sunday is not necessary).

CROSS WAVES LOVES CHILDREN!

Cross Waves comes alongside parents and provides them with a weekly children's message to watch with their children. Children will learn the Bible in a fun and entertains format.

Wayne says...

"There are many things I like about Cross Waves Church: The Small Group atmosphere, meets in a home, Sunday mornings are a lot less stressful, a chance to have a closer involvement with people, etc. I enjoy the opportunity that I was given to be a Host of a HotSpot. This group happens to meet in my home, which is a double bonus. I know that at any given time I can call up the Lead Pastor and solicit advice on different situations.  I see Cross Waves Church as the next step God would have me take in my personal walk with Him.
 
WE HELP YOU GROW IN CHRIST THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS
 
When Jesus taught the disciples, He did it in the context of relationships. HotSpots mirror the small group setting that Jesus used to train his disciples.
 
WE HELP YOU SERVE CHRIST AS PART OF A TEAM
 
When Jesus sent His followers to minister or serve people, He sent them out in teams of two or more. So when we go out to serve those less fortunate or to share our faith, we do it together as a team.
 
WE HELP YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY INVESTING IN PEOPLE
 
By meeting in homes, more funds go towards community service projects, and providing support for missionaries around the world.
 

Kathy says...

Cross Waves Church is exactly what I was looking for in a church. We study God's Word and share with one another as we learn. I have attended many churches and couldn't find a place where I felt that I fit in. These churches were either too large, or too pushy. I never found the church where I can “be myself.” Cross Waves lets me be myself and share my love for the Lord with others. I look forward to attending each week. It also leaves my Sundays open to relax and enjoy the entire day. I love to be with my Cross Waves family each week.
