Foundations

There are a lot of great things at our church, but underneath it all are these 3 core foundations that are all about loving as Jesus did.  Watch Pastor Arnie's message on our foundations here.

  • LOVE GOD DEEPLY

    God wants us to love Him with our entire being. To love God with all our heart, soul, and mind is the foundation of loving God deeply. To love God is to remain completely dedicated to Him, His Word, and His ways. We are called to love God deeply with an all-consuming relational pursuit.


    “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all you mind. This is the great and first commandment.” (Matthew 22:37-39 ESV)

  • LOVE PEOPLE GENUINELY

    We do not carry the complete capacity to love our fellow man without the deep love of God flowing in and through us. We are committed to loving God and being filled with Him so that we have the capacity to love our fellow man in a real and genuine way. Loving our fellow man will come with a cost that we are willing to pay at Cornerstone Church.


    “And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:39 ESV)


  • MAKE DISCIPLES CONTINUOUSLY

    The primary task of all believers is to make disciples of all people who will in turn make disciples. At Cornerstone Church, we have adopted this simple multiplications process. As Christ followers, we want our lives to count for Jesus and His kingdom so we work hard to make disciples of all people with undying passion.


    “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20 ESV)

What We Believe

We believe the Bible is God's inspired Word, Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Holy Spirit is active, and salvation is God's gift to all who believe in Jesus Christ by recognizing that He died on the cross in their place and by accepting Him as their personal Savior.
