What We Believe

We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)

We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (John 10:30; Matthew 28:19)

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His vicarious death and atonement for sin by the shedding of His blood, His physical and bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father and His personal and visible return in power and glory.  (John 3:16-19; Romans 3:23; 5:8-11; 6:23; Titus 3:5-6)

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is necessary for the salvation of lost and sinful men.  (Romans 8:13-14)

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose grace and indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.  (John 14:15-17; Romans 8:9-11)

We believe in Heaven and Hell; that Heaven is a place of eternal life and bliss with our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, and that Hell is a place of eternal death and separation from God for those who have rejected His son. (John 3:18-20; 5:24; Matthew 13:40-43)

We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, all of whom are joined in His body, the Church. (Romans 12:5; Ephesians 4:4-5).

We believe the Bible teaches that sexual activity may take place only within the bonds of marriage between one man and one woman. (Matthew 19:4-6; Thessalonians 4:1-8)

The New International Version Bible (NIV translation) is the standard translation of the Bible that our students use in all classes at Cornerstone Christian.  The use of only one translation facilitates learning and deeper understanding on the part of students as we discuss passages of Scripture.
