Crosspoint Christian School Reviews
This school claims to be representing no specific denomination, but yet during the pre-admission interview, they went MUCH further than simply asking if we were Bible-believing Christians. They went to great lengths (asking about our "born-again experience"; making sure we weren't depending on a "works salvation"; requiring their participating families to hold to the satisfaction theory of the atonement, etc). It felt more like we were on trial at a heresy hearing than conducting a school interview. Their theological orientation is most definitely Calvinistic Baptist--which is no surprise considering that it is run by that type of church. It seems like it is more important to them that applicants agree with their extra-biblical statements of faith, than that applicants simply believe in the Bible and want to follow Jesus.
This school is run by a Calvinistic Baptist church, but even so, we were actually considering enrolling our daughter in this school (thinking that they would not necessarily try to force their Reformed evangelical faith on our daughter), that is untill we went to the interview for new student families. The three people (two men and a woman) that were interviewing us asked my wife and I to tell them about our "experiences" (meaning the typical evangelical notion of a subjective, emotional, "born again" conversion experience), even though we had already given a written summary of our respective spiritual pilgrimages on the application we had to fill out prior to the interview. Because on our application we told them we are members of the church of Christ (we believe that a person initially becomes a Christian by believing in Jesus as the Son of God, repenting of sin/surrendering to Jesus as Lord, and being baptized with water into Christ--the New Testament teaches that a person is baptized into Christ, not that they experience their way into Christ--and that after being baptized and receiving the Holy Spirit, it is necessary for salvation's sake to continue in an obedient love-faith relationship with Jesus untill we die or He returns), they were trying to make certain that we weren't depending on anything in ourselves or on anything we might do for our salvation (because to them, it doesn't matter what we do, it is only about what Christ has d-o-n-e). So unless you agree with the same popular Reformed Protestant Evangelical doctrine that is espoused on Bott radio network-KSIV, then this school is not for you. But if you do agree with that kind of stuff, then you would probably feel comfortable with this school. In my opinion, one does not have to hold to Justification by Faith-Alone or the distinctive doctrines of the Protestant Reformation (or be a Calvinistic Baptist or a modern-day God & country evangelical) in order to be a disciple of Christ. I want to follow Jesus--not the doctrines of Augustine, Luther, Calvin, or the Southern Baptist Convention. But if you equate these things as being all the same, then you would fit in fine at Crosspoint.
