The Identity of Cross Pointe

Cross Pointe Community Church is a non-denominational church on a mission to reach those who are unsaved, unchurched and out of church. We purpose to reach those individuals by building relationships with God, family, friends and our world. Those relationships are made right when we know God in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, who is the only way to enter into Heaven.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe the Bible to be God’s final, perfect Word to man, which is the basis for everything we do at Cross Pointe.
  • We believe that every believer in Christ has the Holy Spirit living within, and He is the strength who supplies victory over sin and Satan.  This makes each believer a priest unto God and gives him the ability and responsibility to hear God’s voice and follow Him.
  • We believe that Christ is the Head of the Church and He has gifted His body with a team of leaders who must work together in unity.
  • We believe that Christ is coming again, and we must be busy about reaching those who do not know him.

Our Values

  • We value the importance of building relationships.
  • We value the authority and reliability of the Word of God.
  • We value the privilege of expressive, contemporary worship.
  • We value the need to build strong family units.
  • We value all people regardless of their background.
  • We value the unity of the Spirit.
  • We value the priorities of missions and evangelism.
  • We value the need for each member of the church to know and develop his or her spiritual gifts.

Our History

The Story of Cross Pointe

Our story began in December of 2004, when a small group of believers met at the home of Larry & Rosanne Petton in Springdale, Arkansas and shared their vision for a new non-denominational church with a contemporary-style worship format in the Tontitown area. Tontitown had few churches, but was on the cusp of tremendous growth. Those who were part of that historic meeting were Keith & Missi Truitt, Ken & Twila Durrett, Nathan & Raelene Hudson, Jake Naramore, Don & Susan Dalton and the Pettons. This group, which later became the church’s Advisory Team, had a positive spirit, sincere love for one another, and deep faith in what they believed God was doing. Cross Pointe Community Church was birthed in that meeting with the purpose statement of “Building relationships with God, family, friends and our world.”
In January of 2005, a 10,000 square foot lease building was discovered on Highway 412 in Tontitown. A lease was signed by members of the group and plans were drawn for remodeling the building into a unique worship center with creative rooms for children’s ministry. After 7 months of construction and nearly $200,000 in cost, Cross Pointe held its first public services on Sunday, August 21, 2005, which was attended by over 200 people.
The first year was exciting as the church continued to grow spiritually and numerically. More staff members were added and Life Groups were formed to connect like-minded people together to build relationships. The Cross Pointe family members began finding their places of service and ministry.

In August of 2006, the church took possession of the former Mis Panchos restaurant and remodeled it to serve as a youth/multi-purpose building, known as The Warehouse. By our second birthday, it was necessary to begin having two worship services each Sunday to accommodate the crowds.
 Over the next 8 years we expanded our space by taking possession of the store fronts on either side of the Warehouse. These expansions were an answer to prayer because of limited space and the need to expand our Children’s Ministry area and offices. During this time, extensive remodeling was done on the main building to install an indoor playground for children and enlarge the Foyer and Worship Center.
Those years also brought continued relationship building as many people came into a personal relationship with God. Life Groups continued to develop and provide a place for those in the church family to get to know one another and begin to grow in their faith. Our staff increased as we were purposeful about ministering to people of all ages.
As we grew in number and in our desire for authentic relationships, it became more apparent that we needed relational space for people to gather on Sundays and throughout the week. After four years of praying, planning, and saving, we broke ground on July 1, 2018 for a 5,000 sq. ft. Atrium. It was finished and dedicated in April of 2019 and has provided much needed space to expand our ministry.
Today, over 1,500 people are associated with Cross Pointe as God continues to bless our church as we build relationships with God, family, friends, and our world.
