Our Story

Cross Lanes Baptist Church was planted in 1959, by a small group of families who had a vision to make a difference for the kingdom of God. Through the years, the church has maintained a faithful presence, consistently communicating the life changing Gospel of Jesus Christ, teaching the Word of God, and serving on mission together.

The church has expanded significantly in the past twenty-years acquiring more than eleven adjacent properties, adding 40,000 square feet of space, and renovating all of the existing buildings. Total projects have included more than $6 million dollars invested through the faithfulness of God’s people. The facilities are modern, well equipped for ministry, and state of the art.

Spiritually, our passion is “Growing God’s Forever Family”, and we are intentional about the mission God has called us to. Our focus is on practically living out the call to be an Acts 1:8 Church, taking the Gospel “Down the street and around the world . . . ” We are actively engaged in reaching out to and ministering to our community, the surrounding area, and beyond. Church Planting is a significant part of this, and we have sponsored multiple church plants in North America and internationally. The majority of the church is involved in hands-on outreach and missions each year.

CLBC has a rich history, and a bright future. We are deeply thankful for this, and humbled by God’s grace and the many blessings He has poured out on us. We are excited about what God is going to continue to do for His glory, the growth of His people, and for the sake of people who do not yet know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord!
