Our Beliefs

God is the creator of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and one God. 

Man is made in the image of God to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God's creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin". This attitude separates man from God.

Man was created to exist forever. The scriptures clearly teach that there will be a day of judgement and that heaven and hell are real. Eternity will be experieneced by all of mankind either seperated form God because of sin or in fellowship with God through redemption. 

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven's glory and will return again to earth at the last judgement. 

Salvation is a gift from God to men. Men can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ can man be saved from sins penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. 

Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus. At salvation, the Holy Spirit lives in every Christian. He guides Christians into all spiritual truth, produces the Fruit of the Spirit in the Christians life, and empowers the believer with spiritual gifts for ministry. 

Because of the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross, humanity can experience the healing power of God. 

The Bible
All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, correcting, and training in righteousness. It is the supreme source of truth for our lives. 

We are committed to winning the lost in the Atoka area and around the world with the gospel. Every person is valuable. We deeply value diversity. The ethnic, social, and religious distinctions that divide society disappear in Christ. Cornerstone Church is an atmosphere where ALL PEOPLE connect with God. 

Every member has spiritual gifts that must be developed and used in  service of others. Every person in the Body of Christ is a minister. The role of the church leadership is to equip the Body for ministry.
