What We Believe
Cornerstone Church, is a non-denominational, full-Gospel, carismatic church. We believe there is only one way to heaven and one mediator between God and man, the Lord Jesus Christ. We also blelieve that all nine gifts of Holy Spirit, as lisited in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, are for today.
The Bible is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant. 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; Prov. 30:5; Rom. 16:25,26)
Jesus Christ is God the Son,. On earth Jesus was 100 percent God and 100 percent man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again some day in power and glory. John 1:1,14; John 20:28, 1 Tim. 3:16; Isa. 9:6; Phil. 2:5,6; 1 Tim 2:5).
There is only one way to heaven and one mediator between God and man, the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Tim.2:5-6). There is salvation in no other name or person. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts. Eph. 2:8,9; Gal. 2:16; Gal. 3:8; Titus 3:5; Rom. 10:9, 10; Acts 16:31; Heb. 9:22
Repentence is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation. Acts 2:21, Acts 3:19; 1 John 1:9
Baptism in Holy Spirit
Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His ascension, to empower the Church to preach the gospel throughout the whole earth. It is available today to all who believe as a subsequent and separate gift after the new birth that must be specifically.(Luke 11:9-13) The baptism of the Holy Spirit is evidenced and accompanied by the gift of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. Joel 2:28,29; Matt. 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5; Acts 2:1-4, Acts 2:38, 39: Acts 8:14-17, Acts 10: 38, Acts 10: 44-47; Acts 11:15-17; Acts 19:1-6
The Gifts Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection and confirm the power of the Gospel. These gifts are supernatural in nature and may occur in various combinations. There are 9 gifts of the Spirit as listed in the scripture. (1Cor.12:4-11) All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives.(1Cor.12:31) These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of biblical parameters. Heb. 2:4; Rom. 1:11; Rom. 12: 4-8; Eph. 4:16; 2 Tim. 1:5,
The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus’ Great Commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the Church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. Eph. 1:22; Eph.2:19-22; Heb. 12:23; John 17: 11,
The Lord's Supper
A unique time of Communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Matt. 26:26-29; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, Acts 10:47,48; 1 Cor. 10:16; 1 Cor. 11: 23-25.
Healing of the Sick
Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples and all believers (Mark 16:15-18). Healing and miracles are still available to those in need today through the atoning work of Christ’s suffering (Is.53:5; Matt.8:17; 1 Pet.2:24) . It is given as a sign which is to follow believers. It is also a part of Jesus’ work on the cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit. Ps. 103:2,3; Isa. 53:5, Matt. 8:16,17; Mark 16:17,18; Acts 8:6,7; James 5:12-16; 1 Cor. 12: 9,28; Rom. 11:29.
Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation John 2:19-21, John 20:26-28, John 21:4; Acts 24:15; 1 Cor. 15:42; Phil. 1:21-23, Phil.3:21;
