Holy Cross Day

Holy Cross Day

Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Roodmas 1 — more commonly known simply as “Holy Cross Day” — was first begun to commemorate the Dedication of the Basilica of the Resurrection, built by St. Helena (Constantine the Great’s mother), in Jerusalem in A.D. 355 — but the true Cross was found shortly thereafter, also by St. Helena, so the two events were joined. The story of the finding of the True Cross, from the Catholic Encyclopedia:
In the year 326 the mother of Constantine, Helena, then about 80 years old, having journeyed to Jerusalem, undertook to rid the Holy Sepulchre of the mound of earth heaped upon and around it, and to destroy the pagan buildings that profaned its site. Some revelations which she had received gave her confidence that she would discover the Saviour’s Tomb and His Cross.

We believe The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy.

As followers of Jesus Christ first and then as Baptists, we stand by the churches of like faith and have adopted the BAPTIST FAITH AND MESSAGE as a representation of what we believe. We hold the Bible as the infallible Word of God, and it is the ultimate authority over all man-made doctrine.  The Baptist Faith and Message is not an addition to Scripture, nor do we think it is final or infallible.  It may change as God moves the leaders of our faith to do so.
