Our Beliefs

As a congregation in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, Cornerstone upholds and teaches the system of doctrine set forth in the Westminster Confession and Catechisms. We embrace these doctrinal standards because we believe they are a faithful, clear, and concise summary of the truths revealed by God in Scripture. We encourage you to read the confession, but below is a brief summary of our beliefs:

We believe that the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are the Spirit-inspired and infallible revelation of God. The Bible is our absolute authority, apart from which we could not know God savingly or worship Him rightly.

We believe in the one, true, and living God who exists eternally in three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Our Triune God is ineffably holy, exhaustively sovereign, and incomprehensibly loving.

We believe that all people are created in the image of God to glorify and enjoy their Creator, but that mankind has universally rebelled against God. By nature, we are separated from God and can do nothing to save ourselves from His just wrath.

We believe that the Son of God, out of love for His fallen creatures, became man. Jesus perfectly obeyed the precepts of God’s law as our righteousness and suffered the penalties of God’s law as our sin-bearer so that by faith in Him, we might be reconciled to God in justification and conformed to God’s likeness in sanctification.

We believe that God has and continues to gather His saved people from every nation, tribe, and tongue into a singular body. God calls believers and their children to unite and assemble in local congregations for worship, discipleship, and mission.

We believe that the Son of God, presently reigning in heavenly glory, will return to this earth with the armies of heaven to bring an end to history, judge all peoples, and usher in a new heavens and earth.
