In this journey called life, we are faced with many mountains that we must climb and many valleys that we must walk through. Sometimes it may feel like you are walking alone and that the task in front of you is too hard to face, let alone conquer. We are here to let you know, that you DO NOT have to face lifes giants alone, anymore. Here at THE CROSS CHURCH, you will find a true family that will help you through life's most difficult times. We will worship together, Pray together, love and laugh together, and TOGETHER we will grow closer and have a deeper walk with Jesus Christ. We are part of the United Pentecostal Church International.

We are located at 1122 Market Street in the heart of Parkersburg, West Virginia



To Evangelize, Empower, Equip and Engage with the five fold ministry. To see souls saved with the gospel of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
