Watch the four videos to see how the early church turned the world upside down for Christianity.
We help you learn the 1st Century process of making disciples. Discipleship is the new emphasis in churches today, but why are we not getting the results of the early church? The early church spread like wildfire amid persecution. We will show you the first-century method Christians used, which is working in the world today, but mainly in Second and Third World Countries.
All Christians should be able to say, "Follow me until you see Jesus!"
"Follow me until you see Jesus" should be every Christian life's mission.

When Cross Waves Church was founded, we did not care if we looked different than other churches, which we definitely do. Our goal was to make disciples that turned the world upside down like the early church did.
Let's Get Started
I enjoy the friendships. It is so much more fun to walk with Christ with my fellow Cross Waves friends. I love sharing during learning, fellowship, and prayer time. I enjoy going to the church.
Great place to learn about God regardless of your Bible knowledge starting point.
I have been in church my whole life and until Cross Waves Church, I have never been involved in the deeper discussions about God, faith and the Bible. I just went to church because I was suppose to, but now I go because I understand so much more of what God wants for me in my life. Cross Waves Church is a great place to learn about God regardless of your Bible knowledge starting point. I love the fellowship time each week with my Home Group family and the serve and share events we do as a Home Group.
It is the way Christianity first started.
I love the family atmosphere at our Cross Waves Church Home Group. We have a great time of fellowship while we enjoy dinner together. The message seems to be more personal when watched in a small group and the small group atmosphere also encourages more conversation. I believe this helps us to grow as Christians more than simply sitting in a pew listening to a sermon. It is the way Christianity first started. Cross Waves is simply using the available technology to do the same thing.
I was very frustrated with the time and money we dumped into land and a building.
I have been extremely involved in tradition churches my entire life. My father is a pastor and many of my relatives are pastors and missionaries. As an adult I have been a teacher, deacon, worship leader, young adult leader and a national board member for my denomination. I held most of these positions simultaneously. Most of the people I know think I left my traditional church for Cross Waves Church because I was “burned out”. That could not be further from the truth. I was very frustrated with the time and money we dumped into land and a building. After making the mortgage payment and paying for water, sewer, electricity, gas, lawn care, snow removal, building insurance, vehicle insurance, janitorial services and constant building repairs there was no money left for ministry. It just didn’t seem right to me. While I was struggling with this dilemma, Tim Steele approached me about helping him start a new kind of church. This new kind of church (Cross Waves Church) solved the problems I had with most, not all, traditional churches. I jumped right in. I love my group and I look forward to it every week. I can’t even imagine going back to the “traditional” way of doing church. I am very excited about our outreach opportunities and I look forward to seeing thousands of people get closer to Jesus by studying, serving and sharing together.
I'm learning more here than any other Christian experience I've ever encountered.
I love the relationships that I've developed, and the great food that we eat together. I love the teaching that I get each week at Cross Waves Church. I'm learning more here than any other Christian experience I've ever encountered. I feel like I’m finally learning what the Bible says for the first time in my life. I really enjoy studying God's Word.
