A BIT ABOUT CORNERSTONE
Cornerstone is an excited group of believers in Jesus Christ the Son of God who gave His life on the cross for the remission of our sins. Jesus freely offers forgiveness, salvation and eternal life to anyone who accepts it.
Jesus said; “I come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
We believe the Bible is God’s instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide. Our focus is on worshiping God, growing in our relationship with Jesus and developing friendships with one another. When you visit us, you’ll find the atmosphere casual and friendly. We’re always happy to make new friends.
Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Scripture: Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22 | Psalm 90:2 | I Peter 1:2 | II Corinthians 13:14
God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These are co-equal and are one God.
Scripture: Matthew 16: 15-19 | Acts 2: 41-42; 15: 1-30 | Romans 1: 7 | I Corinthians 1: 2; 3: 16; 5: 4-5; 9: 13-14 | Ephesians 1: 22-23; 2: 19-22| Philippians 1: 1 | I Timothy 2: 9-14 | Revelation 21: 2-3
The Church is a New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ and is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers,associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the two ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights,and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. Its scriptural officers are pastors and deacons.While both men and women are gifted for service in the church, the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture.
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
Scripture: Matthew 3: 13-17 | Mark 1: 7-13; 14:16-17 | Luke 3: 21-22; 22:19-20 | John 3: 23 | Acts 2: 41-42; 8:35-39 | Romans 6: 3-5
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
Scripture: Genesis 1: 26-28; 2: 22-24 | Exodus 20: 12 | I Corinthians 7: 1-16; | Ephesians 5: 21-33; 6: 1-4 | I Timothy 1: 3-5 | Titus 2: 3-5 | Hebrews 13: 4 | I Peter 3: 1-7
Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race.The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since both are created in God’s image. The marriage relationship models the way God relates to His people. A husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church. He has the God-given responsibility to provide for, to protect, and to lead his family. A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ.
Scripture: Romans 5:1; 6:23 | Ephesians 2:8-9 | John 14:6; 1:12 | Titus 3:5 | Galatians 3:26
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Scripture: II Timothy 3: 15-17; 1: 13 | II Peter 1: 19-21 | Psalm 119: 105, 140 | Romans 15: 4; 16: 25-26
The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author,salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.
