MORE ABOUT CORNERSTONE COMMUNITY CHAPEL
At Cornerstone we embrace the vision of connecting Christ with our community in order to increase the worship of God our Father.
As a local church we want our neighbors to meet Christ, come together as a Christian community and reach towards and beyond ourselves with the compassion and the love Christ has shown each one of us.
We do this as we live, work and relax with family, friends and neighbors, always praying for those opportunities to both share and show the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who do not yet know Him. We also work to invite those we know and love into a life-changing relationship with Jesus.
We love our community and want to show this love through service and good deeds done in Jesus’ name. We desire to walk in unity and in intentional affirmation and accountability with one another. We believe that this will create a healthy environment for maturing and multiplying beyond our local church.
As this happens we want to raise up teams who will be able to go out to other communities both near and far to start new churches for the glory and praise of God.
Our Statement of Faith
3.1. We, the members of this congregation, subscribe to the following documents, which have been adopted
by Conservative Mennonite Conference: Conservative Mennonite Conference Statement of Theology
(1991), Mennonite Confession of Faith (1967) and the Danvers Statement (1991).
3.2. We, the members of this congregation, include in our statement of faith, the following:
3.2.1. We believe the Bible alone, and the Bible in its entirety, to be the inspired,
the only infallible Word of God. (I Timothy 3:16)
3.2.2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
3.2.3. We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His
miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection,
in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
3.2.4. We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the
salvation of lost and sinful man. (Titus 3:5)
3.2.5. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the
resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
3.2.6. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is
enabled to live a godly life. We believe that this same Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to
the believers in the work of the church.
3.2.7. We believe in the spiritual unity of the believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, and that
brotherhood and discipleship are visible expressions of this unity.
3.2.8. We believe that Christians are responsible to live according to the ethical and moral
standards set forth in the Word of God.
3.2.9. We believe that Christian believers should be separated from the evil world system and
be separated unto God.
3.2.10. We believe that the Bible commands us to love all men, and forbids the taking of
human life by Christians.
3.2.11. We believe that Christian brotherhood, consisting here of the local congregation, is
invested with the authority and responsibility to nurture and develop the Christian
experience of its members.
3.2.12. We believe that the commission to make disciples of all nations is imperative for
Christians, individually and collectively.
