Mission statement and role to the community:
Members, with the help of the almighty God, the Holy Spirit and the Lord Jesus Christ, strive to carry out the "great commission" as stated in "Matthew 28: 18-20" and related verses of the Holy Bible.
_ Members are urged and expected to assist others in taking the gospel of salvation to the lost personally after
being led by the Lord.
_ Converts are instructed to their duty to confess Christ by baptism - immersion in water after leading the lost to a saving knowledge of the lord Jesus and upon having received him as lord and savior.
_ Converts are instructed and taught in matters of Christian conduct, Bible study, church attendance, personal soul-winning, tithes and offerings, faithfulness to Christ and any other scriptures deemed necessary to their prosperity and growth.
_ Converts regularly attend church services, prayer meetings, revival meetings, personal visitation, church visitation, missionary work and distribution of spiritual literature.
_ The church operates a Bible Institute for training of men and women who desire to prepare themselves for more useful service to Christ.
What they stand for:
_ Members stand for the historical, biblical faith of the Baptists and earnestly contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints.
_ Cornerstone is an independent Baptist church governed by the New Testament way.
_ It's a Bible-believing Baptist church and accepts the authorized King James Version of 1611 as the word of God for the people of the English language to live by and be judged by.
_ It's a soul-winning church and wants to share with others the joy of knowing Jesus Christ as their own personal savior.
_ It's a separated church in a rapidly declining moral society teaching Christian believers to live godly, Christ-honoring lives.
_ It's a friendly church offering a warm and loving welcome in a family atmosphere.
