About


Cornerstone Church is where you connect with Christ and with each other!

By holding up the values of prayer, the Bible, fellowship, discipleship, evangelism and ministry, we guide every person who comes through our doors and prepare them to leave with a greater sense of purpose and passion – as well as a closer walk with Jesus.

At Cornerstone, you will love the challenge, experience the authenticity, and enjoy the fun and the feel of an authentic Christian family.


What We Believe

First and Foremost, for the Worship of God and Jesus Christ

The name “Cornerstone Church” was chosen as it represents the ‘bedrock’ of our belief and the foundation of Jesus Christ. Everything we do is based on our commitment to the essentials of our faith and is in alignment with the Southern Baptist Convention’s Baptist Faith & Message, 2000 available here

Independent and Autonomous
Every SBC church is independent and autonomous, so it is also helpful to know that at Cornerstone we believe the church exists first and foremost for the worship of God and Jesus Christ and manifests this worship through six key components:
