Our Five Cornerstones
Cornerstone Church is a community led by the Holy Spirit. We love encountering him individually and corporately too. For us what counts is daily encounters with God, experiencing his presence and leading. We are committed to the biblical outworking of the Spirit in all of us.
We believe God has designed each of us individually and uniquely. When put together, it is all of our backgrounds, experiences and gifts that make up Cornerstone Church's expression of the body of Christ. We want to honour being what God has called us to be. We value genuineness and people, over process or procedure. We are honest about our struggles, and we lead with integrity and transparency.
Life is about growth. To be part of Cornerstone Church is to be growing in life and faith with no barriers. It's about a daily journey of genuine encounters with God. As we live for Jesus, we are being transformed by his power and for his purpose. In this process, we become more like him and more uncomfortable with being stagnent in our spiritual life.
From our very beginning, Cornerstone Church has been a community and has also been a family. We are a family centered in Christ, and our goal is to have a unity which is created by Christ. We partner with God in his work of transforming lives and communities, both locally and globally. While being part of this, we hope to be transformed ourselves through the process. We love our wider community and have a focus on sharing God's love with people in genuine and authentic ways.
Cornerstone Church is about life, not just on Sunday, but through the whole week. We are an ever growing and interconnected family which loves, lives with, and serves each other. We are about creating environments where people connect with God, and connect with each other. We connect others to God with Jesus at the centre of it all.
