The Bible says in 1 Pet 4:11, “If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”
Our heart’s desire is that God may be glorified in all things as we seek to minister to others.
Cornerstone Baptist Church was started in 1991 by a group of people who wanted a church where the Bible was the final authority, not tradition or denomination. Since that time, God has blessed the effort of that initial group and the vision has been broadened and refined as the years have passed.
As we have sought the leadership of the Holy Spirit and with a desire to “seek the old paths,” there are a few ministries which seem to be the “earmarks” of our church. First would be Bible preaching and teaching, in order to “perfect the saints.” We have also seen a great response to the challenge of World Missions as we presently support more than 170 missionaries. One of our goals is to minister to the entire family and emphasize the importance of Bible based homes. This of course leads to a lot of training for the youth, and a particular emphasis on character. With these areas of emphasis, we also strive to exercise grace and allow the saints room and time to grow in the Lord. Christianity is not a Sunday religion. It is not a performance. It is a relationship with Jesus Christ which matures with time and effort.
Cornerstone Baptist Church is an independent, fundamental, mission-minded baptist church that holds to the following:
- Salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone
- The King James Bible as the preserved word of God & our final authority
- The virgin birth of Jesus Christ
- The deity of Jesus Christ
- The pre-millennial return of Christ to this earth
- The eternal security of every true born-again believer
- The gospel as the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus Christ
- We resist the contemporary music & mega-church philosophy
Our first meeting was in a tent in 1991. We organized as a church in October of that year and have witnessed the merciful hand of God through these years as we have grown in Christ through old fashioned preaching, praying, singing and genuine concern for the saved and lost alike.
