Together because of and for the Gospel🙌

New life in Christ has a way of changing everything. God gives us a new family and a new purpose. We find things in common with other believers, and it doesn’t even matter how different our backgrounds and lives may be.

He puts us all together and grows us to encourage one another, bear each other’s burdens, and live our lives as lights- sharing the Gospel.

Just like the Christians in the New Testament, our new life in Christ isn’t without challenges. Losing our old life for our new life in Christ is worth it because Jesus offers us the most valuable treasure we could ever have. We don’t only have the promise of eternal life, but we have the promise that God will give us peace and life more abundantly— here and now.

We get all of this because of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ!

Let’s not hide the Good News! Let’s share it with anyone who will listen.

Mark your calendar! 🗓

Exciting things are coming to Crosspoint! See below for several of these opportunities to serve and grow together. Be sure to save the dates and be a part.

This Sunday

We are studying the letter in Revelation 3 to a church on life-support. Don't miss this important message to see what Jesus has to say to us. We want to thrive - not just survive! Let's hear all about it this Sunday! Join us and bring a friend!

August 20

Community Outreach - Saturday @ 10:30 am
Jesus said, "Go make disciples of all nations." He told the church they would receive power and would be witnesses in their hometown, the surrounding areas, and even across the world.

On August 20, we are going through a few neighborhoods inviting people to come to church. We will be joined by a group from Liberty Baptist Church in Newport Beach.

Come help us fulfill another aspect of what we as a church are called and commissioned to do! We will meet at Victory Park on the east side of the main parking lot.

Are you a wise manager?

Scripture teaches us that everything belongs to God; we are just the managers of His blessings and resources. As the owner of all, He tells us that we are to give Him 10% of everything He blesses us to receive. This is often called the tithe.

God also encourages us to go above the tithe and invest His resources into His work. This is what you may hear called "offerings." Offerings are usually given as extra gifts to the general fund of a local church, or they are designated to support world missions efforts or to grow a building fund.

These are the ways God has chosen to provide for the financial needs of the church as we endeavor to accomplish His purposes. He even promises to bless us in proportion to our giving. (See Malachi 3:10, 2 Corinthians 8:1-5, 2 Corinthians 9:6-11, and Philippians 4:15-19)

You can be obedient to the Lord and invest in His work.  We have endeavored to make it simple and easy to give using Pushpay for your tithes, offerings, and special gifts!

To start, click this link to access our new online giving page: crosspoint.la/give. Or you can text GIVE to (833) 921-6982 and follow the prompts to give through your smartphone!

Pushpay currently accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, as well as ACH (bank account) gifts! You can also set up your giving as a recurring transaction. If you currently use recurring giving, please update it to this new platform today. Thanks!


We will be streaming the 10:30 am service LIVE on our Facebook page and on our YouTube channel.

Important stuff 😉:

  • Who are you going to bless this week? "Exhort one another daily" is a great encouragement to us all. It helps us stay close in fellowship and protects us against the attacks of the enemy who wants to divide us.
  • Let us know if you or someone you know has a need.🙏
