Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Jesus didn't use false advertising to recruit disciples. Rather He told them just what would be expected of them and told them to consider whether they could do it even as a person who was going to build something had to make sure they had the resources to finish it. He said that they would have to make discipleship their first priority, even though it could lead to the cross.

Are you truly ready to be a disciple?
