Discussion with Don Reiher: Is his Belief "Crossless"?

Recently Don Reiher, Webboard host for the Grace Evangelical Society (GES), made the following statement that intrigued me. He said:

"I believe the ONLY Biblical Gospel AND Saving Message as taught by the GES doctrinal statement: 'Salvation: The sole condition for receiving everlasting life is faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ, who died a substitutionary death on the cross for man's sin and rose bodily from the dead (John 3:16-18; 6:47; Acts 16:31).'"

Is Reiher's belief "crossless"?

I find Reiher's comment interesting. No, I wouldn't say it's "crossless" - but I would say it's "groundless" (no burial). And why doesn't Reiher say "I believe the ONLY Biblical Gospel AND Saving Message as taught by THE BIBLE"? Instead he says, "as taught by the GES doctrinal statement". It makes me think of what Jesus says in Mark 7:13, "And so you cancel the word of God in order to hand down your own tradition."
