During the earliest days of Cornerstone Church, the founding members labored to set forth a vision for the what the new church should become. They subsequently dedicated themselves to being God's instruments for making this vision a reality. As Cornerstone Church continues to grow, we remain true to that original vision of building...
A church where God's hand (not man's!) is pre-eminent.
A church where our vertical relationship and communication with God is its foundation, being nurtured by our horizontal relationships and communication between believers.
A church with hearts that seek after God through prayer and who hunger after His Word.
A church where the Holy Spirit’s guidance, power and presence is evident.
A church with pastors and teachers whose mission is to build believers in the faith so that they can be equipped to serve the Lord.
A church where the Bible is clearly taught from cover to cover.
A church with emphasis on the laity vs. performance of a few.
A church where the distinction between being in the world and not of it is clear - where we are being transformed into the image of Christ.
A church that is made up of the poor in spirit, with hearts broken before God, characterized as servants.
A church that is oriented to reaching and nurturing families while promoting activities for mixed ages.
A church that is part of a diverse residential community.
A church that welcomes and respects all, regardless of background, race, age, wealth, and appearance.
A church that invests in effective world outreach (missions) and that trains and sends its own out to reach the world with the Good News.
A church that worships God from the heart and through the Holy Spirit.
A church where the Lordship of Christ and God's love shine brightly, starting with its leaders and throughout the congregation.
"If everything is important, nothing is important."
An effective church must claim certain intrinsic beliefs that become the foundation for its existence and continuity. Cornerstone Church has taken these six core values from God's Word and is using them to govern every aspect of ministry to its members and larger community.
We value authentic community were relationships are built on honesty, cooperation, commitment and sacrificial love for one another. Everyone is welcome in Cornerstone's diverse community where being transformed into the image of Christ is highly valued and where God's power and presence is evident. Our relationship with Jesus Christ and each other is the glue that holds us together. The source of our community is the love of Jesus Christ for each one of us.
|John 13:35||1 Peter 2:5|
|1 John 3:16||1 Corinthians 12:13|
Prayer is actively promoted as our personal and corporate discipline. When combined with faith, prayer yields amazing results. Our dependence on God to do what we cannot do reminds us that with God all things are possible.
|Ephesians 6:18||John 15:7|
|1 John 5:14|
God leads his church as the Holy Spirit moves in powerful ways in the lives of its individual believers. God has given every believer a capacity to minister His grace to others. We help every Christian to identify their gifts, passion and natural talents and we encourage their use. The pastors are equippers and models of servant style leaders. The people are the ministers who function in synergistic teams to carry out the work of Jesus Christ in the church and the world.
|Ephesians 4:7||1 Peter 4:10|
Our worship is creative and alive because of God's presence and invites every believer to draw near to him. Through worship God's person and work are lifted up in keeping with how He is revealed in Holy Scripture. We use worship styles of the past and present so that all generations will be brought together.
|John 4:24||Psalm 150:6|
The basis of teaching, preaching and the court of final appeal for all matters of belief and Christian living is the inspired and inerrant Word of God. The entire Bible is used as our guidebook for life and living.
|2 Timothy 3:16|
The gospel is the power of God for salvation to those who believe. We consider it our mission to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ to the entire world beginning with our own local residential communities. We seek to use methods to communicate the unchanging gospel message that fit the cultural context of the hearers.
