About Crosswinds International

Dr. Ronald & Sheila Powell

Founders & Senior Pastors

Who are we?

  • Crosswinds International Fellowships are independent, non- or inter-denominational Christian fellowships. Congregations are worldwide. Each congregation is totally autonomous; Crosswinds local & central support headquarters is located at 109 Westfaul Dr. in Macon, Georgia.
  • The servants or ministers are unpaid and raised from within our local congregations, based on Scriptural qualifications listed in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1.
  • We take no collections. All expenses are met by unsolicited, voluntary contributions.
  • In most cases, we hold no real estate. Most congregations generally meet in rented facilities. Smaller groups often meet in private homes.

What do we believe?

  • We accept Christ as our personal Savior, and that he died not only for the Christian, but for the whole world. (1 Timothy 2:5,6; 4:10; John 3:16)
  • We accept the Bible as the inspired Word of God and study it in its entirety - seeking the harmony of the complete Scriptural testimony. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17)
  • We believe that each individual is responsible to personally study and prove the interpretation of the Bible for themselves. (2 Timothy 2:15) We strongly recommend topical Bible study as the best means of arriving at God's meaning on a subject, and we provide study aids to that end. We support continual Bible reading on a personal basis.
  • We encourage a complete, personal consecration of our all to God, accepting the trials and sufferings that such a life brings as not worthy of comparison with all the joys and glories to come. (Romans 12:1,2; 8:17-19, 22-23; 2 Timothy 2:11,12)

What are our activities?

  • We have Sunday and weeknight topical studies on Biblical subjects. We welcome all sincere Christians to join with us in our worship services and studies of the Lord's Word.
  • We are active in spreading the gospel message - telling others about God's wonderful plans through newspapers, literature and the Internet.
  • We urge parental responsibility in the religious education and training of our children. However, most congregations do provide children's classes at their Sunday services.

Statement of Faith

Crosswinds Christian Center encourages people of all beliefs and persuasions to investigate what the Bible teaches. There is no official membership at Crosswinds. However, we consider a number of biblical doctrines to be central to our faith and vital to the integrity of all aspects of our ministry. We affirm significant historic creeds of the church, such as the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed.

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired word of God. The 66 books which constitute the Bible are entirely reliable and truthful, and the Bible stands as the central authority over our lives, our faith and the direction of the church. (2 Timothy 3:16; Matthew 5:18)

The Trinity

Three persons eternally share the Divine Nature. The Bible refers to these persons as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God is both self-existent and personal. (John 14:10, 26; 15:26)

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ, the Son, is fully God and fully human. Born of a virgin, He lived a sinless life, died for the sins of humankind, was resurrected bodily on the third day, ascended into heaven and is coming again as King and Judge.

Jesus Christ is the only provision that God has given for people to be reconciled to Him. Jesus’ life on earth also serves as the model for the Christian life. (John 14:6; Acts 4:12)

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is God. He indwells us at the moment we place our faith in Christ. He empowers us to live an effective Christian life by affirming our salvation, encouraging us and giving us the strength to live a life that is pleasing to God and personally fulfilling. The Holy Spirit also endows each believer with a unique spiritual ability to serve the church and the world. (John 14:16; Ephesians 1:19-20; 1 Corinthians 12)


Salvation is reconciliation with God through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. God offers us salvation by His grace alone and we receive it as a gift through personal faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. This right standing before God must be received and cannot be earned. God freely offers salvation to all people, and our salvation is secure. (Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 8:38,39; Ephesians 1:13; 2:4)


Human beings are created in the image of God. As such, we are unique among all of God’s creation. Through the abuse of our God-given free will, we have turned against God and this has resulted in spiritual death for all humankind. Humanity lives in a state of alienation and profound need which can only be satisfied by reconciliation with God through Christ. Without this reconciliation, all people stand under God’s righteous judgment.

Humanity, although fallen, maintains the image of God and is, therefore, still dignified and unique. God continues to love us and reach out to us, even though we are hostile to Him. Believers in Jesus Christ receive a new nature that becomes the foundation for a process of transformation. (John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 5:17)

The Church

The church is composed of all those throughout history who place saving faith in Jesus Christ. The church is not an institution, but a people. God wants all Christians to live out their spiritual lives in a corporate context. This context of Christian love relationships is a crucial feature of our witness for Christ as it reflects God’s character to the world.

The church is God’s chosen instrument through which the message of salvation is spread to all people. This mission is the central purpose for the church. We are to carry the good news locally and worldwide and demonstrate the gospel by relevant social action. (John 13:34, 35; 1 Corinthians 12:12-26; Matthew 28:19)


Satan is the personal, spiritual adversary of God and God’s followers. Satan actively opposes the work of the church and the spiritual vitality of Christians. We therefore take seriously, but in a balanced way, the reality of personal, spiritual opposition. Satan is doomed to final defeat and judgment when Christ returns. (Ephesians 6:12; Revelation 20)

Second Coming

This age will conclude with the personal, bodily return of Christ. At that time, He will complete God’s plan to reestablish His just and righteous rule over all humanity. (Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 20)

The Afterlife

At the final judgment, God will assign all people their eternal destinies—either life or judgment. Those who have responded to Jesus Christ with saving faith will receive the eternal life they have already been promised (John 5:24), while others will live under eternal judgment.

Therefore, because eternal issues are at stake, there is an urgency to communicate the gospel. (Matthew 25:46; 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10)
