The Ark-La-Tex now has a majestic 199 foot Cross near the intersection of I-20, I-220, and Hwy. 80, in Bossier City, Louisiana.  As the secularization of America increases and religious monuments are being removed by those antagonistic to the faith of our fathers who founded this great nation, the people of the Ark-La-Tex want to make sure future generations will never forget!  The Bible says, "Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set." (Prov. 22:28)  This beautiful Cross on the Hill overlooking Shreveport/Bossier City is not only an expression of our faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ but also an enduring symbol of our love for God and Country.


HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP TO LIFT UP THE CROSS!  You can have your name and/or the name of your loved one inscribed on a beautiful Meditation Bench or on a Brick of Remembrance placed in the Prayer Garden of the Plaza of Faith surrounding the Cross.  You can also have your name and/or the name of your loved one inscribed in the Scroll of Remembrance near the Cross.  Other unique memorials may be available by special arrangement.

Don't miss this opportunity to show future generations you made it possible to lift up the Cross as a testimony of your devotion to Christ and your love for America!
