Our Core Values

What comes naturally to us…..

Bible is Truth
 

We firmly believe that the Bible is the immutable, infallible, Holy-Spirit inspired Word of God given to His Church to teach us, guide us, admonish, warn and correct us. Therefore we commit ourselves to offer adequate opportunities for people in all stages of spiritual growth and maturation to learn the Word of God and to apply it to their lives.

(Hebrews 4:12,; 2 Timothy 3:16)

  

 Compassion
 
As a people who fully embrace the fact that “God comforts us in all of our troubles so that we can comfort others”, we will strive to be a community where people are accepted as they are and ministries of compassion and mercy are intentionally pursued.
(2 Corinthians 1:3 (NLT),    
Zechariah 7:8-10)
 Friendship/Fellowship
 
We love being in life together and encourage believers to be part of a smaller community; to care for each other, develop friendships, and share their lives.  We believe loving relationships should permeate every aspect of life.  This includes the concepts of love-driven ministry, ministry accomplished in teams, and relationship building.
(1 Corinthians 13;
Nehemiah 3; Luke 10:1;
John 13:34-35)
 
 Spiritual Transformation
 
Our ministries assist and encourage people to develop an increasingly intimate, trusting, obedient relationship with God through which the Holy Spirit makes us disciples who are more and more like Christ.
 
(Ephesians 4:13; Romans 2:12)
Prayer
 

We believe in the power of prayer. And we accept the admonition to “Never stop praying!” Therefore we are committed to the work of prayer: teaching people how to pray and encouraging them to actually pray-- as individuals and as a community— for needs both inside and outside of the church. We commit ourselves to practice  communicating with God in prayer.

(James 5:16,
1 Thessalonians 5:17)
 
Worship
 

Cornerstone Church offers opportunities for people to experience the awesome holiness and majesty of God, and to respond by worshiping Him in many ways, both individually and together in community.

(Psalm 100, Romans 12:1)
