Cornerstone Christian Academy Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)
  1. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30)
  1. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 10:33),

           His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35),

           His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11),

           His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood

          (1Corinthians15:3; Ephesians1:7; Hebrews 2:9),             

           His bodily resurrection (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4),

           His ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19), and in

           His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).

  1. We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; that men are justified only by faith in the shed blood of Christ; and that only by God's grace and through faith alone are we saved. (John 3:16–19, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8–9; Ephesians 2:8–10; Titus 3:5),
