Cornerstone desires:

1) to bring each individual into a personal, intimate relationship with God the Father; with Christ His Son, our Lord and Savior; and with the Holy Spirit who equips us for ministry and reveals to us God’s will and mind;

2) to equip each person for individual ministry that will combine with those of other members to form our corporate ministry; and

3) to bring light where there is darkness, to heal the brokenhearted, to preach the good news, and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor (Isaiah 61:1-2).

First, Cornerstone wishes to bring each person into a revelation of God the Father that will result in a personal relationship that will bring about a change. This relationship will result in each person’s knowing he or she is a new creation (II Corinthians 5:17-20) and is a vital and cherished part of God’s household.

Second, Cornerstone wants everyone to develop a living relationship with Jesus Christ. We want each person to know Christ as the "Son of the Living God" (Matt 16:17-17), as the One Who suffered, died, and rose from the dead for the forgiveness of sins (Luke 24: 46-47), as the One Who offers everyone life (John 20:31), as the One Who does not condemn the world but saves it (John 3: 16-18), and as the One Who had no sin but was made to be sin that each of us might be in right relationship with God our Father.

We also want each person to know Jesus as a man Who was fully human (Mat. 1:21), as the One Who calls us into a lifetime of ministry (Matt, 4:19), as Our brother (Matt 12:47-50), as the One Who suffered and died on the cross (Matt 27:46), and as the One Who commissions us to "make disciples of all nations" (Matt 28:18-20).

Third, Cornerstone wants each person to know the Holy Spirit as the One who God sends to us to teach us all things (John 14:26), as the "breath" of Jesus that empowers us to continue Jesus’ ministry (John 20:21-22), and as the "one and same Spirit" who gives to each a spiritual gift for ministry (I Cor. 12:4-11).

Cornerstone also recognizes the importance of maintaining a relationship with fellow believers. Therefore, we should always meet for corporate worship and fellowship that we might spur one another on toward love and good deeds (Heb. 10:24-25). This gathering as a church body is a mainstay of every believer’s spiritual life.

Finally, to keep the proper balance in our daily lives and in our spiritual lives, we need to remember the two great commandments given to us by Jesus. The first is to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, with all our souls, and with all our minds; the second is to love our neighbor as ourselves (Matt. 22:37-40).

We do all of this out of love for God and for others, realizing that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Christ is the Son of God. It is the desire of Cornerstone that each person make this confession now and so enter into an eternal relationship with God the Father, Jesus His Son, and the Holy Spirit.
