About Cross Point Vineyard Church
Cross Point Vineyard Church is presently a small but on mission church located in Centerville, OH. Our beliefs are based on the Bible and centered on Jesus Christ. Our mission is very simple: to lead people to honor and glorify Jesus Christ. That means we’re not about a building or some complicated religious system, but about helping people from all backgrounds discover the joy that comes from knowing and serving Jesus Christ.
We invite you to come and check us out this weekend at our worship service, SUNDAY at 10:30 AM. We know that going to a new church can be intimidating, so we try to do things in a way where you’ll feel welcome and not like an outsider. When you come, you can participate or just sit back and observe. You’ll discover a warm atmosphere, practical teaching from God's Word and lots of friendly people pursuing God together. And with childcare and classes for all ages, your family will love it too!
God made a promise in the Bible that if we seek after Him, we’ll find Him. You are a valued part of God’s creation and His deep desire is to be in a relationship with you. So come and join us as we pursue God together!

At Cross Point Vineyard Church we value the family and we believe church should be a place for people of all ages. Every Sunday we provide children's ministries alongside our regular services, which provides a age-appropriate environment for kids to encounter Christ.
Cross Point Vineyard Church is guided by a leadership team who provide overall direction and watch over the spiritual needs of the church. Our pastors provide sound, practical, biblical teaching at each worship service. They have received theological and pastoral training and are equipped to share God's love with our local community. Cross Point Vineyard Church is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will.
The call of the church is to continue to do and teach what Jesus began to do and teach. With that heart we look to the purpose for our anointing and what the Holy Spirit has come to empower us for. Our heart as a people is to flow in God's heart to reach out to those around us and see God's grace extend to accomplish the desire of God's heart in people.
Though recognizing the challenges and limitations of time constraints and other factors such as a mixed group of participants (being in the faith or not), it is my vision and desire to have worship experiences and services to lead people into the presence of God in ways that attract all present to unite in hearts open to Him. I believe that worship should seek to lead people into encountering God's presence and therefore must be more than an effective production that appeals to a listening audience. Pursuing excellence and quality is fine but is done subserviently to the goal of divine encounters. Though the people present may not be able to enter in at the same level, I believe all present can discern the distinctive nature of the meeting.
We believe people need to be lead to be a growing people who are learning about and learning how to enjoy the wonder and power of God's presence. Since the ultimate goal is to unite God and worshipers the goal of worship services must be the same. Will the atmosphere created be 1) high quality music that celebrates God but is focused primarily on execution and presentation or 2) pursuit of His presence and a divine encounter that has effective musical support?
Often the discerning difference is in the impression on those present. In the first the production is praised and in the later God is. In the first people are awed by the ability of the worship leaders and band. In the later people are preoccupied and awed with God. If it comes to doing or choosing what will draw the crowd or "encounter the cloud" of God's manifest presence, I choose the later in hope of favor and wisdom as to how we might facilitate others to come and do likewise.
