Welcome to the First Baptist Church of Cross City web site. We're pleased to provide you with information about our church, its beliefs, mission and ministries.  You will also find many resources to encourage you in your relationship with the Saviour of all men, Jesus Christ.

Whether you are looking for a spiritual family to connect with or seeking information about one of our upcoming events, we hope your search will ultimately lead to the discovery of God's glorious purpose for your life and to the peace Jesus promised to those who look to Him.

The Living Stone and a Chosen People

As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says:

“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
    a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
    will never be put to shame.”

Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,

“The stone the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone,”

and,

“A stone that causes people to stumble
    and a rock that makes them fall.”

They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

 2 Samuel 23:10 (NKJ)
He arose and attacked the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand stuck to the sword. The LORD brought about a great victory that day; and the people returned after him only to plunder.
