Mission, Values, and Beliefs

Our Mission

Love God. Love Your Neighbor.

Our mission is to bring hope to our community through the love of Jesus by raising up disciples who make other disciples that are equipped with a faith that works in real life.

Our Values

Worship Jesus

Above all else, Cornerstone Church is about Jesus. We believe that everyone worships something. We worship what we treasure, what we value most. As believers, we worship Christ because He is the only One worthy of our devotion and affection.

Make Disciples

Making Disciples is our primary goal as a church. To make disciples means “to make learners.” Being a disciple means that we are constantly learning about and becoming more like Jesus. Disciples make other disciples so that Christ may be glorified and His kingdom spread on earth.

Prayer

Live in Community

Relationship with God is the centerpiece of the Christian life. Just like any relationship, we have to cultivate our relationship with God through intentional time and conversation. We do not see prayer as merely a way to get things from God but as a way to get more of God himself.
Life is not designed to be lived alone. In a world where isolation is the norm and it's easy to get lost in the crowd, we need community and relationships more than ever. True growth and change come from deep relationships centered around the Good News of Jesus Christ. God created us to live in community, and we most effectively live out our mission as the family of God, together.

Our Beliefs

We Believe: That God reveals Himself to sinners and He saves them for His glory. He does this through creation, through His Spirit and through His Word.

We Believe: In one God, the Creator of all things who is infinitely perfect and exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity is equally God and has divine attributes.

We Believe: No one is like God, no one is equal to God and there are no other gods. Just to list a few of His attributes, the Bible describes God as Holy, Just, Loving, All-knowing, Patient, Eternal, Unchanging and Wise. We capitalize these attributes of God because we believe He does not just exhibit these behaviors, but they are His complete essence.

We Believe: Jesus is the full expression of God the Father; He is God’s self-revelation and only through Him can we come to the Father.

We Believe: Only God is worthy of glory. The goal of life is to bring God glory in everything we do. It is the purpose of God's people.

We Believe: We are saved by grace alone through faith. We cannot impress God by our works or our morality, as salvation is a free gift of grace. Grace is undeserved and cannot be earned, it is a gift of love from the Father.
We Believe: Every word in the Bible is divinely inspired. Although the Bible was penned by men, it was written by God, speaking to men through the Holy Spirit. The Spirit that inspired the writing is the same Spirit that indwells those who are saved, and He will bring meaning, understanding and power to obey the Word of God.

We Believe: In the Spirit-given gifts of 1 Corinthians 12-14, Romans 12, and Ephesians 4, as well as, the order that comes with those gifts. The Spirit gives the gifts as He determines, not as we demand. In addition, the gifts are not proof of salvation, but further proof of God's grace and power. They are to be used by each member to benefit the entire Body of Christ.

We Believe: We believe the church is built by Christ, which is why we never worry about our weekly attendance. We exist only to honor Him. The gathering of saints is important to the Body, but a personal, growing relationship with Christ does not happen just on the weekend, which is why we believe in community groups. Church is not once a week, church is life together in Jesus.

We Believe: The church is missional in its makeup. Jesus has called us to go make disciples. The Church should proclaim the name of Jesus and be the voice used by God in the local community.
