Education - We teach people to grow in their understanding and application of biblical truth.
Fellowship - We foster the use of gifts to minister lovingly to one another as the body of Christ.
Evangelism - We equip people to share the gospel of Jesus with their friends and neighbors to advance God's kingdom in this world.


Our Beliefs

Cornerstone Presbyterian Church (CPC) is a part of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). A full explanation of what we believe and teach is found within the Westminster Standards. We also affirm the Three Forms of Unity - the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession and the Canons of Dort as well as the historic creeds such as the Nicene Creed and the Apostles' Creed. Below is a brief topical summary of what we believe.

See the Westminster Confession of Faith in full

The Bible
We believe that the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

The Trinity
We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, infinite and unchanging, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Man and Sin
We believe that all people are sinners by nature, are guilty in God’s sight, and are totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure. His free grace alone provides a way of salvation.

Election
We believe that this salvation is the work of God alone. He sovereignly chooses whom He will save. We believe that His choice is based solely on His grace, not on any merit found in his people, their foreseen faith, or their religious activity.

Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect obedience and sacrificial death as the representative and substitute of his people, atoned for the sins of all who would trust in Him alone for salvation.

Justification
We believe that the only way to acceptance with God is by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone.

God's Covenant Promises
We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His covenant promises.

The Church
We believe that the church is the covenant community of God and the sphere within which the grace of God is available to all, through the preaching and teaching of the Bible, and the administration of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Outside the church there is no ordinary possibility of salvation.

The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and enables them to trust Christ and follow Him. Faith is the gracious gift of God.

Perseverance of the Saints
We believe that having come to saving faith in Christ, believers can never be lost, but persevere to the end, being kept by the power of God through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This perseverance is both the responsibility of every believer, and the infallible promise of God to all His people.

The Return of Christ
We believe that Jesus will return at the last day, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.

Living the Christian Life
We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ as we wait for the day of His glorious appearing.

THE GOSPEL

The gospel is clearly summed up by the Apostle Paul in 1 Timothy 1:15, "The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost." In other words we are sinners in need of saving, we cannot save ourselves. We needed Jesus Christ, the Son of God, to come and save us. 

The Prophet Isaiah understood this reality well. In Isaiah 6, he had a vision where he found himself in the very presence of God. And upon realizing where he was, he cried out in despair, "Woe is me, for I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!" Why did he cry out? Because he was a sinner, and in the face of God, who is perfect and without sin, there is no other proper response besides humiliation and the expectation of condemnation and death. But there is hope. A coal is extended to Isaiah that makes him clean. This coal is pointing to something that was still to come. Something better. Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ would cleanse and purify us of all of our sins. How? By going to the cross, bearing the punishment for our sins. So that the guilt of our sins is paid in full! But not only that! While Jesus Christ lived on this earth in the flesh, he lived a perfect life, a life without sin. And now for the one who believes that Jesus died for their sins and rose from the dead conquering sin, that perfect record is now your record! 

The gospel is not for perfect people, it's not for righteous people, it's for sinners, it's for the wretches of the world. And the Bible makes clear for us that this is who we are. Do you want to know more? Do you want to know this salvation?
