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.
Our differences can create conflict on our own, causing all sorts of problems in our relationships. But God uses our differences to build us up and to draw us to Him and to each other. We continue our sermon series on the Song of Songs, “Altogether Beautiful” in chapter 5.
Sometimes, it’s hard for us to believe what God says about us. But in Song of Songs, he tells us over and again that we are altogether beautiful, and there is no flaw in us. May you hear those words from Him in your life as we continue our sermon series on the Song of Songs, “Altogether Beautiful” in chapter 4.
We are all searching for something: purpose, practicality, people. Thinking if we can somehow find the right one, thing or place, we can be whole. Before we ever start our search for God, He comes searching for us. We continue our sermon series on the Song of Songs, “Altogether Beautiful” in chapter 3.
“Arise,” he calls out! God’s Word to us is found in this call to life with Him forever. But there are foxes which want to ruin our relationship with Him and with each other. We continue our sermon series on the Song of Songs, “Altogether Beautiful” in chapter 2 and see God’s hear to us!
God reveals His love for us in Song of Songs and the love shared between a man and a woman. He speaks to us through their relationship, and reveals when we are weak, He is strong. We continue our sermon series on the Song of Songs, “Altogether Beautiful” in chapter 2 and see God’s strength for us.
In the Song of Songs, God invites you to be real. God invites you into relationship. God invites you to embrace the imperfect. God invites you into His family. God invites you to delight. Song of Songs is about the relationship between man and woman AND between God and us. We’re going to wrestle with one of the hardest books of Scripture, and how God speaks about marriage, sexuality, and intimacy. We begin our sermon series on the Song of Songs, “Altogether Beautiful” in chapter 1 where God invites us to draw near to Him.
We are within sight of the end! We are nearly there! It’s the last week of our sermon series on 1 Timothy that we’ve been calling “Are We There Yet?” It all comes down to this. But maybe, if you’ve ever been on a trip, you know that the final portion of the trip is the most perilous. We conclude our series looking at 1 Timothy 6 and what’s foolish and wise.
Sometimes, it feels like God is cheap. We pray, and we ask Him for our deepest prayers and His answer is no. Even when we ask Him for things which are good, His answer is no. Even still, He is generous with what matters most! He gives us everything we need for eternity through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. He asks us to rely on Him for everything, especially what matters most. We continue our sermon series, “Are We There Yet?” and 1 Timothy 5.
Sometimes, it feels like we’re completely unprepared for the situations in life that we have to face. We’re weak, and we lack the strength to move on. In all situations, God invites us to rely on Him. We walk with God in weakness and strength in the latest message in our sermon series, “Are We There Yet?” and 1 Timothy 4.
Babies love playing peekaboo. This is most certainly true. It helps them develop as your face is hidden and revealed. They learn that you’re present even if they can’t see you. There are some things in our lives we’d like to remain hidden, physically, mentally, and spiritually. We walk with God through what’s hidden and revealed in the latest message in our sermon series, “Are we there yet?” and 1 Timothy 3.
