Crossview Bible Church was planted in 1978 to serve Yucca Valley and the Morongo Basin. We have people of all ages, cultures, and denominational backgrounds. What brings us together is our love for the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you're looking for a family-friendly atmosphere with solid Bible teaching, you’ll feel right at home.
Pastor Stephen Jones and his family have been with us since 2006. He holds a B.A. in Political Studies from The Master’s College and an M.Div. from The Master’s Seminary. His goal is to shepherd God’s flock and equip the saints for the work of the ministry (Eph. 4:12). He also serves as an Adjunct Professor at California Baptist University, secretary of the Morongo Basin Evangelical Pastors Fellowship, executive board member for the Inland Empire Baptist Association, and committee member for the California Southern Baptist Convention.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, completely true, and sufficient for all matters of life and godliness. We believe that Jesus is both fully God and fully man, and that by trusting in his atoning death and resurrection you can experience eternal life. We believe the Holy Spirit is God's gift for believers concurrent with salvation, who strengthens us and endows us with gifts for the benefit of the church. We believe that Jesus is coming again to judge the living and the dead and to rule this world in righteousness. Our full statement of faith is The Baptist Faith and Message. We align with 9Marks Ministries and the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), a network of churches who support missions, church planting, and disaster relief.
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to be a global pandemic. Since that time, we have taken many steps to implement CDC guidelines while making sure we obey Christ's command to gather for worship. The elders have written a statement that will help you understand our rationale on the subject, and how we will navigate the decisions ahead. We encourage you to read our full Statement on Public Worship.
