Welcome to


All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness .   2 Timothy 3:16

“Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” (Ps 119:105)
Nearly 3,000 years ago, during the period of the Judges, Scripture reveals,
“In those days... everyone did what was right in his own eyes”
 (Judges 21:25)

Sadly, Scripture would characterize such words as today’s present times. Foundational truths are under siege in every dimension of life. Time-honored values and core beliefs, once embraced as cornerstone truths, have been abandoned. God’s truths have been increasingly ridiculed.

Paul’s words to the Romans resonate clearly and timely: “Professing to be wise, they became fools...and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever” (Rom 1:22-25)

Today, we face the greatest crisis in the history of the Christian church: the collapse of biblical truth. The Word of God -- along with the key theological and biblical doctrines that were once boldly and unashamedly proclaimed before the congregations and even guided our national conscience -- are openly mocked, ignored, or presented in weakened, superficial sound bites, if at all.


Yet there is much we can do and are challenged to do, as individuals. We are called to grow in biblical knowledge and serve God in all areas of our lives. We are to honor God in every aspect of our life.


For these reasons, the Cross Roads Bible Institute is dedicated to enriching the lives of those who seek truth.

The Cross Roads Bible Institute is relatively new (late 2009) to Harford County, yet is committed in its exiting journey. We have completed twenty four (24) classes, with more great classes this Fall. Starting this September, we will be offering an exciting slate of classes: “Plants of the Bible -- How Plants Teach Spiritual Lessons"  and "Pneumatology -- The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit" (both courses will be held at the Perry Hall Baptist Church, beginning in September).  Additionally, at the main location, the Family Life Center of the Upper Cross Roads Baptist Church, we will be offering “Survey: Joshua-Esther” and “Survey: Ezekiel-Malachi.” 

We encourage you to consider attending one of our classes, which runs for 10 sessions (once/week, for 10 weeks).The Cost is $50 (for Credit); $20 (for Audit).

May God richly bless you,
