Beliefs

Jesus is our lead story. Everything he says in his word we believe to be true and worth staking our whole life and reputation on (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

OUR CORE BELIEFS

Salvation—A Gift from God:  Every person must acknowledge that all have sinned, accept the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior, and live a life committed to serving the Lord and obeying His word, the Bible. (Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23; John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-10)

Worship—A Grateful Response:  Man was created to worship God.  God is seeking true worshippers; those who worship in spirit and truth.  We believe God chooses to minister in the context of authentic worship.  At Cornerstone Community Church we desire everything we do to be an expression of worship to God from our opening song to our teaching to our interaction throughout the week.  (John 4:21-24)

Scripture—A Biblical Message:  We are committed to the clear and accurate communication of God’s Word in a way that ministers grace and urges obedience.  (II Timothy 3:16-17; Romans 3:23, 6:23; II Corinthians 5:17)

Prayer—Communication with God:  As a church, we value and believe in the power of prayer.  Through prayer we align our hearts and lives with God.  Prayer is a spiritual discipline that reflects a dependence on God.  We desire prayer to be a constant part of our lives both when we gather corporately and when we are apart through out the week.  (I Timothy 2:1-2; I Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Ministry—A Team Effort:  We are committed to a team model for ministry and organization that equips and empowers every family, member, and leader.  We believe each member has a special giftedness and a specific function in order for the church to be healthy.  We value God-centered families and relationships.  (Ephesians 4:11-16; I Corinthians 12:12-31)

Missions-A Divine Mandate: Missions is participation in the work of God’s Kingdom.  God is gathering a church from all the peoples of the world for His glory.  In obedience to His commands, we desire to be actively pursuing people who are not yet believers locally, regionally and globally.  We desire to be a church that reflects God’s heart for the lost and His heart for the world.  (Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 19:10)
