Our Beliefs

At Cornerstone Church, we believe that the Bible is from God and that the Bible is true. According to the Bible, the following are affirmations we hold:

The Bible

The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority for determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, the Bible is inspired, infallible and inerrant.  (Prov. 30:5; Rom. 16:25-26; 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20,21)

God

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal.  (Gen. 1:26; Isa. 9:6; Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; Luke 1:35; Heb. 3:7-11; 1 John 5:7) 

Salvation

Humanity was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression, it fell. Humanity’s only hope for redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  (Gen. 1:26-31; 3:1-7; Rom. 5:12-21) For anyone to know God, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.  (John 6:44,65)  We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ's death, burial and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human effort.  (Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Gal. 2:16; 3:8; Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Heb. 9:22) 

The Holy Spirit

Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside them by His Holy Spirit. They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for them when He died, was buried and rose again from the dead. (John 1:12; 14:17,23; 15:4; Rom. 8:11; Rev. 3:20) The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the Church. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of biblical parameters.  (Rom. 1:11; 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-31; 14:1-40; Eph. 4:16; 1 Tim. 4:14; 2 Tim. 1:5-16; Heb. 2:4; 1 Pet. 4:10)

Ordinances/Sacraments

Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new believer is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  (Matt. 28:19; Acts 2:38)  Communion is a unique time in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (representing the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.  (Matt. 26:26-29; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12,36-38; 10:47,48; 1 Cor. 10:16; 11:23-26)

The Return of Christ

Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures (Matt. 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thess. 4:15-17; II Thess. 1:7-8; Rev. 1:7)
