We offer two contemporary worship services in the same format on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11am. At Crosspoint we believe that everyone was created for the sole purpose of worshiping God, and we desire to worship God not only as individuals but also in community. We believe this is vital, and our Sunday morning service is where our greatest expression of community worship takes place. We strive to craft our services in such a way that anyone who experiences a Sunday morning with us is impacted by the conviction of God's word, the miracle of his grace, and the hospitality of our congregation. Whether sharing in conversation over a cup of coffee from our coffee bar, or taking in a challenging message from one of our pastors, we are learning what it means to be God's people, together.
Getting to Crosspoint
We're located at 4601 Bellaire Blvd. Right at the corner of Avenue B and Bellaire Blvd, just one block inside the 610 Loop.
For Your Kids
On Sunday mornings we have Kid's Bible Study offered at 9:30am. Classes are age divided.
KidRally is a special kid-friendly worship time at 11am for kids age 4-5th grade. Younger kids go with Miss Abby and Mr Jason, older kids with Miss Lisa and Mr Todd. It is a time of songs, games and teaching from the Word.
Child Care for children ages birth through 3 years is provided during all Sunday morning programming. Even very young children can learn that Jesus loves them, so an age-appropriate teaching curriculum is offered during Sunday School.
What We Believe
• God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1,26,27; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14)
• Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a, 59:1 2; Romans 3:23)
• Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God, through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence. (John 3:16; I John 2:25; 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15)
• Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13)
• Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:12, 14:6; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1)
• Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security. (John 10:29; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10-14; I Peter 1:3-5)
• The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. (II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18)
• The Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; II Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160; 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)
• A New Testament church is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by the Bible, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. (Matthew 16:15-19; 28:18 20; Acts 2:41-42,47; Ephesians 3:8-11,21; Colossians 1:18; 1 Peter 5:1-4)
• God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race. Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord. Parents are to teach their children spiritual and moral values and to lead them to make choices based on biblical truth. Children are to honor and obey their parents. (Genesis 2:18-25; Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Psalm 139:13-16; Proverbs 22:6; Matthew 5:31-32; 19:3-9; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 7:1-16; Ephesians 5:21-33; Colossians 3:18-21)

Houston welcomes more refugees than any other city in the United States. If Houston were a nation, it would be the fourth largest recipient of refugees in the world. These refugees have been displaced by war, persecution, or natural disaster and have often spent years in a refugee camp before they are approved to come to the United States. They arrive in Houston with a few belongings and are expected to learn English, enroll their kids in school, find a job, and become self-sufficient in a period of three to six months.
Looking for Ways to Help?
Are you interested in serving refugees here in Houston but not sure where to start? Please join WUB/CP Church and Houston Welcomes Refugees on February 23 from 7 – 9 p.m. for an orientation on various opportunities available to make a tangible difference in the lives of refugees new to Houston. Click to register.
If you cannot attend on February 23, there will be other orientations on February 19, 21, 27 and 28. Email Kathleen Yarborough for details.
One of their greatest needs are friends to help with the transition. We can do that! Please consider the following opportunities to be the hands and feet of Christ, right here in Houston.
Refugee Congregations – WUBC/CP Church is partnering with Emmanuel Baptist Church in Missouri City to host two refugee congregations, Congolese and Burundi. Opportunities are available to teach English as a Second Language, Citizenship and Job Readiness Classes. For more information, please email Kathleen Yarborough.
Welcome Kits – The kits consist of items that a new refugee family will need as they move into their apartment. Kits can be put together any time and dropped off at the collection point on monthly collection days or they can be brought to WUBC. This is a great project for a family, Bible Study, Life Group or youth service project. Click here for a list of needed items and drop off information. In partnership with houston welcomes refugees.
Move-in Teams - Move-in teams help to set-up the refugee family's home prior to arrival with donated furniture and Welcome Kits (see above). The team picks-up the Welcome Kits up at the storage facility, delivers them to the apartment and puts everything where it goes. The furniture is delivered separately by the resettlement agency. The Move-In Team also brings basic grocery items and dinner from a local ethinic restaurant so dinner will be there when the family arrives. Teams consist of 4-6 people who have a passion for turning a house into a home. To sign up, click here. In partnership with houston welcomes refugees.
Welcome Teams The first few months are critically important time once refugees arrive. Does the family have food? Do they know how to get around? Do they have what they need? Welcome Teams act as a relational support system for the family. They are the advocates. They check in and make sure everything is ok. Often times, they’re the only people that the refugee family knows. They meet the family at the airport, teach the family how to go grocery shopping, use appliances, sort through mail, take them to the zoo and generally adapt to life in Houston.
Welcome Teams work best in a group context, so the responsibility of meeting the family’s immediate needs can be shared. The vision is that these relationships would be long-term, so a six month commitment is required. The focus is on helping the family navigate through daily life, building lasting friendships, and caring for the refugee in an extravagant way! Please consider joining a Welcome Team through houston welcomes refugees. To sign up, click here. In partnership with houston welcomes refugees.
Donated Furniture - Families are in need of twin and queen bed frames and (new) mattresses, couches, tables and chairs. Email to receive information about where to drop these items off or to have them picked up at your house.
Fruits and Vegetables – Plant It Forward provides Houston with fresh, local produce by helping refugees grow their own urban farm businesses. Each farmer is trained to farm using organic methods and sell their produce through farmers markets, farm stands, restaurants, and farm shares. Click here to sign up for a farm share or find a farm stand near you. There is a farm stand opening SOON in Bellaire and a pick-up location in West U.
