What We Believe

Our Mission:
"It is the mission of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ who love God above all else, and sacrificially love others in our congregation, community and world."

Our Core Beliefs:

  • The unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Godhead.

  • The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgment.

  • The divine inspiration and entire trustworthiness of Holy Scripture, as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of all people since the fall, rendering them subject to God's wrath and condemnation.

  • Redemption from the guilt, penalty, dominion and pollution of sin, solely through the sacrificial death (as our representative and substitute) of the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.

  • The bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead and his ascension to the right hand of God the Father.

  • The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration.

  • The justification of the sinner by the grace of God through faith alone.

  • The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.

  • The one holy universal Church which is the body of Christ and to which all true believers belong.

  • The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our doctrine and organizational structure would be recognized as coming from the rich heritage of historic Presbyterianism. We are part of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), www.pcanet.org. The regional body of the PCA is the Heritage Presbytery.

An extensive presentation of our understanding of the teaching of the Bible can be found in the historic documents known as the Westminster Confession of Faith, and the Larger and Shorter Catechism. Click here to learn more about these documents.
