Why We're Different
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Logical Beliefs
 
 
We think what you believe should make sense. Contemporary evangelical theology, however, sometimes doesn't make sense, and what we believe is an exciting alternative to people seeking a logical faith. 
 
We know many people are reluctant to put their faith in a God that requires them to believe things that logically contradict themselves.
 
With specific doctrines like the trinity, eternal torment, and life after death, we see that the teachings of the Bible speak about these things differently than most.
 
If you are seeking a logical faith, we invite you to stop by Cornerstone and see what we're all about. Any of our leaders would be happy to talk with you and answer any questions you may have.
 
 
Value Truth over Tradition
 
Truth and tradition are two powerful forces in the Christian world. Churches are always trying to balance between seeking after truth, and keeping tradition.
 
The difference at Cornerstone, is that we seek to discover the truth of what the first christians after Jesus believed instead of accepting "traditional beliefs" passed down through hundreds of years of church councils and corrupt leaders.
 
Church history shows clearly the evolution of doctrine and thought within the christian community. Some churches hold equally the tradition and evolution of theology and truth. Cornerstone seeks to get back to the original, 1st century beliefs of the church, and place truth above tradition.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Jesus' Gospel
 
In addition to the traditions that have invaded the first Christian's beliefs, mythology has greatly impacted the gospel that Jesus taught.
 
Jesus taught that those who believe in Him would not be subject to immediate judgement, but would rather wait in the dust of the earth for His second coming where He would redeem the earth.
 
God did not create the earth to be abandoned, He created it for a purpose. Although the world we live in today is far from perfect, God will one day redeem the world and make it, and us, new.
 
 
 
God's Mercy
 
A question people ask, is why would God punish somebody for eternity, for only 70 years on earth? How could you believe in such a cruel God?
 
The biblical belief of God's Kingdom speaks of the faithful being resurrected to eternal life, and the unfaithful being burned in the like of fire and suffering a "second death." Not being eternally tormented.
 
God, even in His judgment is merciful. He has designed an eternal life for us that is not boring, monotonous, or tedious, but rather full of purpose in His Kingdom.

In addition to the scriptural positions described on our beliefs page, we hold to these simple statements and beliefs.
 
In our humble efforts to find truth, we affirm and deny the following:
 
 
 
 

 

We Affirm

 

 

  • that the Bible, both Hebrew and Greek Scriptures, are inspired and true
  • that God is a singular individual named Yahweh (the Father of Jesus)
  • that Jesus was miraculously begotten by God in the womb of the virgin Mary
  • that Jesus could have sinned but instead chose to consistently obey the will of his Father in every situation
  • that God was at work in his Messiah in an unparalleled way such that Jesus was empowered to do many miracles
  • that Jesus is God's supreme agent and thus may be called God because he represents him
  • that Jesus died for our sins, was resurrected from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will return to judge the living and the dead
  • that the holy spirit is the means by which Father and Son are able to be present in the world even though they remain in heaven
  • that tens of thousands of singular pronouns mean that God is a singular individual
 
 

 

We Deny

 

 

  • that belief in the Trinity is necessary for salvation
  • that Jesus had to be God in order for his death to pay for the sins of the world
  • that salvation has anything to do with consenting to unintelligible creeds
  • that it is possible to be both God and human at once
  • that it is possible to be immortal and yet die for the sins of the world
  • that it is possible to be omniscient and yet not know the day or hour of one's return
  • that one can be begotten and yet have no beginning
  • that the holy spirit is a distinct individual from the Father and the Son
  • that truth is determined either by how many people believe it or by how long it has been a cherished belief
  • that Jesus believed in the Trinity since he agreed with a non-trinitarian scribe on who God is by confirming the central creed of Judaism: The Shema
  • that the thousands of references to "GOD" in the Bible ever mean a Triune God
  • that we know it all
