Holy Cross Oxford is a community welcoming all people of all ages to Follow Jesus, Learn and Grow.
Everyone’s invited to follow Jesus: young and old, married and single, rich and poor, every nation and race. You don’t have to have it all together, in fact, you probably won't. That's why Jesus came for you.
The first thing Jesus does with those he invites to follow him is teach them. Are you listening to what Jesus is teaching you? We learn what life is like by listening to Jesus, and we're learning as we go.
When we follow Jesus and learn from Him, we grow in faith in Him and in love for one another. He doesn't require our perfection, but He invites our participation in the work He's doing in the world around us.
We live out our mission by exploring our faith, experiencing God's grace, and expressing our faith in love.
Jesus says those who have been forgiven much love much. We seek to share God's love in our families, our church, and in our community. We love because He first loved us. We express our faith in love by serving our community and our church.
King David’s greatest battles were fought against the Sin inside of himself. Instead of doing what he was supposed to do as a king by going off to war, he stays home and fails repeatedly. “The Story” sermon series continues. You can always text your questions to 248-274-4676. We’ll answer them in our Facebook Live at 2pm on Sundays.
David is raised from shepherd boy to King of Israel. Throughout his life he faces many dangers, but the ones which are always most dangerous came from inside of him. When we fight our battles, we should choose our champions wisely. “The Story” sermon series continues. You can always text your questions to 248-274-4676. We’ll answer them in our Facebook Live at 2pm on Sundays.
What separates you from God? In the Israelite temple, there was a curtain which was 60-feet tall and six inches thick. It stood as physical representation of the spiritual separation of our Sin. When Jesus was crucified, the temple curtain which separated God from His people was torn in two! In Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, there is nothing which keeps you from God.
The Israelites wanted a king. They wanted to be like the world around them. Do we struggle with the same problem? “The Story” sermon series continues. You can always text your questions to 248-274-4676. We’ll answer them in our Facebook Live at 2pm on Sundays.
Ruth is a story of ultimate faith in God worked out in real lives of real people. God works in the regular and mundane. There are no miracles, angels, divine revelation. God prepares Naomi, Ruth and Boaz for the good works they do in faith. There’s suffering, sacrifice and deliverance, all pointing to our savior Jesus.
“Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” The last words in the book of Judges sound familiar to people living today. What do we pass on to the next generation and those who come after us? We continue our sermon series called “The Story”.
God commands Joshua, “Be strong and courageous.” He encourages Joshua, “Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” He knows He sends Joshua to battle. He knows the price which will be paid. We continue our sermon series called “The Story”.
Why do the Israelites wander through the desert for forty years? They don’t believe God will do what He promises. They don’t believe He is who He says He is. Keeping our eyes on Jesus, we continue our sermon series called “The Story”.
We are who God makes us to be. God tells us “Be Holy.” First, it’s a commandment for us to keep. But more than that, “Be Holy” is forever God’s covenant of who we are. It is who God makes you to be. We continue our sermon series called “The Story”.
