About Our Church
Who We Are
Cornerstone Christian Church is a Protestant church that follows the principles of the Reformation. It is autonomous and locally controlled.The purpose of this church is as revealed in the New Testament: to win people to the faith of Jesus Christ so they may call on Him as their personal Savior, and to commit them actively in the church to help them grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ. This church, acknowledging the deity and absolute final authority of Christ, and the inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, the Bible, is committed to preach this word and to advance the general growth of Christians at home and throughout the world. The Lord’s Supper is observed each Sunday in remembrance of Him.
