Sunshine, warm temperatures, beach umbrellas, and surfing. Summer is an exciting time of the year for the whole family to grow in your relationship with God. Check out all that's happening this summer at Atlantic Shores Baptist Church. 

1 Thessalonians: The Lord's Coming


We have much in common with a congregation of early Jesus followers located in northern Greece, who were tempted to compromise with the pagan culture around them. The Lord’s coming is at the core of an encouraging letter the Apostle Paul wrote to the Thessalonians, helping them and us endure difficult times while we wait in faith for Jesus’s return.

SOAR Leadership Summit

The leadership community at Crossway Church is an exciting, encouraging place where leaders lift leaders. Throughout the ministry, lay leaders help the church soar. If you are a current leader, or are interested in service in the life of the church, join us for a leadership summit and an encouraging word from Pastor Ron. Join us at 9am on Saturday, July 20 in the Worship Center. Childcare will not be provided. 


Crossway Church

Atlantic Shores Baptist Church of Virginia Beach (est. 1981) is now Crossway Church. In response to the changing world in which we minister the gospel, we placed the cross of Christ at the center of the church’s identity. We are not ashamed to say, “We are Crossway!” We will begin operating as Crossway Church beginning July 1. Mark your calendar for July 21 as we have our first Sunday in the new building.
