what we believe

  • We believe in the verbal inspiration and authority of the scriptures.
  • We believe that the Bible reveals God, the fall of man, the way of salvation, and God's plan and purpose in the ages. 
  • We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. 
  • We believe in the deity, virgin birth, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. 
  • We believe that salvation is by grace plus nothing and minus nothing. The conditions of salvation are repentance and faith.
  • We believe in the visible, personal, and premillennial return of Jesus Christ. 
  • We believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.

who we are

Cornerstone Baptist Church is a unified body of Christian families that exists to promote the will of God through:

  • EXPOSITORY preaching
  • EVANGELISTIC outreach       
  • EXALTATION of the triune Godhead
  • EDIFICATION of the saints. 

We believe Cornerstone to be an upward looking, outward looking, and inward looking church. We look upward in that we believe all ministries should bring glory to our Heavenly Father and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. We look outward in that we believe Cornerstone should be evangelistically intensive.  And we look inward because we believe the church should also edify the saints so that they might do the work of the ministry. These reasons drive our purpose and mission statements.
