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.
Come as you are.

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.
I was made for this! If you’ve ever come to that realization with something in your life, you know how empowering the statement can be. Nehemiah was a man living in exile, a servant to the king. God stirred his heart to begin a good work. God stirs our hearts as well. We begin a new sermon series “The Good Work”.
“An overwhelming majority of Americans continue to believe that there is life after death and that heaven and hell exist,” according to Barna research. But “they’re cutting and pasting religious views from a variety of different sources—television, movies, conversations with their friends.” God gives us glimpses of our future in His Word, glimpses filled with love and hope. After 31 weeks, “The Story” sermon series concludes.
Intersection ahead! Paul’s life was one of a major crossroad. After his conversion, and to the end of his life, Paul preaches what Jesus teaches. At the end of his life, Luke tells us that Paul living under house arrest in Rome. “He lived there two whole years at his own expense, and welcomed all who came to him, proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.” (Acts 28:30-31) “The Story” continues!
God sends us on the most important mission the world will ever know, to share his love, grace and mercy. But he doesn’t send us alone. Wherever we go, God is with us. Paul’s Mission shows God’s work in our mission. “The Story” sermon series continues.
We live in a world where people may be skeptical of that there was a God-man named Jesus who died and rose from the dead but we can show them a community with love for one another they want in their lives. What if the unbelievers where we live, work and play witnessed God’s love in us? “The Story” sermon series shows us what happens as the disciples explore their new beginnings.
The birth, death and resurrection of Jesus are intricately connected in the story of our salvation. You cannot have one without the others. With hope we look to Jesus’ resurrection. The Story sermon series continues.
God’s plan continues with people in mind. He calls regular men and women to join Him in His work. “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.
Nehemiah is a man of prayer. In situations small and large, threatening and celebratory, he prays. Nehemiah is a man of action. He uses the gifts God has given him to do the work God has called him to do. “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.
Esther is a unique book of the Bible, where God doesn’t speak and isn’t mentioned. Yet, God’s love for His people is seen throughout the book. We see Esther acting boldly in faith, putting her life in harms way for the sake of others. She is truly the queen of beauty and courage! “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.
Are you going to put God first? It’s a question asked under the threat of death to Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. It’s a question asked of us. We follow God’s people into exile in Babylon as “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.
