How the Resurrection Changes Everything

Cross Theatre exists to coach the Church to embody the Kingdom of Christ by becoming through the Spirit a Theatre of hope powered by the Gospel.

1 Corinthians 4:9 "God has put us apostles on display, at the end of the procession, like men condemned to die in the arena. We have become a Theatre to the world, to angels, and to men."

2019 John Bunyan Conference of Tennessee

Cross Theatre is an arm of Providence Theological Institute (PTI) that helps equip (coaches) pastors and local churches to move beyond bare affirmation of doctrinal systems to the dynamic embodiment of real discipleship in the life of the fellowship.  Doctrine is not just information to make smart Christians but graced indoctrination that produces faithful followers of Jesus Christ. 

The Drama of Redemption is not primarily about what you have been saying and doing but about what God has been saying and doing in sending Jesus to embody and display His  love. So, it can be properly called “TheoDrama.”  Cross Theatre (CT) is the Drama where God has chosen to stage and share His Love.  God is the Author, the Producer, the Director, and the Marquis player.  Each of us are also players on this same stage and can only fittingly play our assigned role when we understand the storyline of Cross Theatre.  Theodrama stages the mighty act of God when he raised his Son and enthroned him as King of Kings. We retell it again and again as we gather to worship and then go back into the world to embody the Gospel.
