CrossRoads was originally named Daytona Beach Baptist Church. With most of our members residing outside the boundaries of Daytona Beach, the name Daytona Beach Baptist misrepresented who we really are. We were often confused with First Baptist of Daytona Beach, and believed our own distinct identity was long overdue. As we expanded, the less "location limiting" name of CrossRoads Church has better served us.
The name change went into effect in October, 2005. This change was an important event in the church's history, and we are enjoying all the benefits that were hoped for. But, as you will discover as you read our history, both when it was known as Daytona Beach Baptist or now as CrossRoads, there have been many events that have significantly impacted the church's rich history. And, as you will see on the following pages, the ministry of this church has significantly impacted our community and the world for the cause of Christ.
