Crossview Bible Church (formerly First Southern Baptist Church of Yucca Valley) 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 Adjunct Professor at California Baptist University, secretary of the Morongo Basin Evangelical Pastors Fellowship, and as a board member for the Inland Empire Baptist Association and the California SBC.
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 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 9 Marks ministries and partner with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), a network of churches who sponsor global missions, church planting, and disaster relief.
