About Our Church

CrossLife Church launched as a new church in Portsmouth on September 2013. CrossLife was started in Virginia Beach, Virginia in 2012 with Pastor Rick Williams and twelve other Christians that felt the leading of God to start a new church.
 
In the spring of 2013 God opened a great door of opportunity when we received a call from Surry Street Baptist Church in Portsmouth, Virginia. Surry Street Baptist was closing after sixty plus years of ministry and they graciously offered to CrossLife their land and facility. Their desire was to see the facility continue to bring people to Jesus.
 
After much prayer we felt led to accept the offer of Surry Street and relocated CrossLife from Virginia Beach to Portsmouth.
 
By the leading of God, we opened a new church, with a new vision and direction to reach the community of Portsmouth and the surrounding region.
 
In the short time we have been in Portsmouth, we have seen the hand of God move as people have accepted Christ as Savior and believers are growing in their faith.
 
Our purpose is simple; Bring honor and glory to God, seek and save the lost and make mature disciples of Jesus Christ.
