Before The Cross Logo - About Page

Before The Cross brings the image of man on his knees in worship before a Holy and Loving God who has demonstrated His love for us through the Cross.

It is only through the perfect life of Jesus Christ, His death on the Cross, and His resurrection, that we can have a relationship with Him. It is ultimately Before The Cross where we surrender our will for His Will and with joy choose to follow Him for the rest of our lives. Everything is about Jesus and He is the reason we can have a relationship with God.

Before The Cross exists to Glorify God by Sharing the Love of Christ with the hope of pointing the lost to Him and strengthening His Church. We do this through biblical teachings, devotionals, encouraging posts, and anything relevant to Christianity. Our prayer is that through this site, you can ask questions, seek and obtain truth from the Bible, and explore various resources to help you as a follower of Christ each day. If you have not decided to follow Jesus, our prayer is that you would make that decision to follow Him today.
