Texarkana is strategically located between the two major cities of Dallas, TX and Little Rock, AR and positioned in Northeastern Texas on the Texas-Arkansas border, just north of the Louisiana border. The three parts of its name honor the three states: Texas,
Arkansas, and Louisiana. In many respects, the two cities function as one municipality; for example, they share a single post office, the only one of its kind in the country. Texarkana attracts outdoor enthusiasts from all around and boasts one of the most
beautiful lakes in Texas, Lake Cypress Springs. There are several family friendly communities with sidewalk-lined streets, excellent schools with Texas-sized ranches and farmlands. Texas has no state income tax, which makes it an affordable place to both live
and work. Cross Pointe Baptist Church loves being a part of this wonderful community and is committed to reaching Texarkana and its surrounding areas with the love of Christ.
