Crossroads Christian Church is an Evangelical Christian megachurch, located in Corona, California, United States.[1]

History[edit]

Crossroads Christian Church was founded in 1892 by nine members in Corona, California. Led by Reverend Wright and Sister Iola, the church opened as "First Christian Church of South Riverside." In 1932, the church changed its name "1st Christian Church, Corona"; at the time, it had 100 members. The current name was put in place in 1980.[2]

Chuck Booher is currently the senior pastor. Crossroads Christian Church is a megachurch with a congregation of more than 8,000 congregants. Crossroads Christian Church has been cited by the Christian media as being in the top five of all US churches for having the most baptisms in one year and the largest Easter Service attendance.[3]

In 2003, Crossroads opened its first full service cafe called Third Place Cafe. In 2005, a 3,000-seat worship center and chapel was opened. To celebrate the opening of the worship center several concerts were presented featuring artists such as Olivia Newton-John, SHeDAISY, Delirious?, Jeremy Camp, Michael W. Smith, Lonestar, Casting Crowns, Phil Vassar and Third Day.[4]
