Cornerstone Community Church
At Cornerstone, we embrace the core issues of Christianity and present them in a way that is real, smart, brave, and fun. We care about you, and have made a place for you here. We hope you’ll find our non-traditional approach to church refreshing. Our mission is to reach people, make disciples and build relationships. At Cornerstone Community Church, we place a high emphasis on helping you and your family connect with God and others. our STORY Cornerstone Community Church began back in 1992 when founding and senior pastor, Ron Armstrong, moved his family to the Temecula Valley, along with four other families, to start a different kind of church. Like most beginnings, it was an exciting and scary time. Our first service was on February 2, 1992, and we didn’t know if a single person would show up. Over 300 people came and more importantly, 200 of them came back! Our first year was spent meeting at rented facilities until we eventually acquired our current property. Over the years we built multiple buildings as hundreds more joined our family. But soon after the completion of our newest sanctuary, tough times hit with the great recession of 2007. A short time later, personal tragedy challenged our leadership team, when Pastor Ron and his family experienced the loss of their oldest son in December of 2008. The Armstrong family and the church family went through a season of intense grief. This was a difficult chapter, but a significant one nonetheless, telling the story of people unwilling to quit even when times were hard. God in His amazing compassion and guidance has brought both the family and the church to healing, strength and renewed vision. Today, we are writing a new chapter. Our community is growing, our worship is blossoming, and our teaching is more relevant than it has ever been. Please join us. We’d love for you to be a part of this next chapter in the Cornerstone story! our TEAM Cornerstone believes that we are better together. Our staff has a blast serving Jesus, His people, and each other. Let us know how we can help you grow in your relationships, develop your gifts, and find success in your life. our BELIEFS We recognize that there are some CORE issues of Christianity and some PERIPHERAL issues. An example of a CORE issue would be the resurrection of Jesus. The only opinion taught is that there was a physical resurrection of Jesus. An example of a PERIPHERAL issue would be how often you should take communion. It is an issue about which there is room for more than one opinion. Whether to sing hymns or choruses is a PERIPHERAL issue while the fact that we only come to God through Jesus is a CORE issue. IN CORE ISSUES – WE HAVE UNITY “There is one body and one spirit…there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all.” Ephesians 4:4 IN PERIPHERAL ISSUES – WE HAVE LIBERTY “Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters. Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls…so then each of us will give an account of himself to God…so whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.” Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22 IN ALL OUR BELIEFS – WE SHOW LOVE “If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.” 1 Corinthians 13:2 A HEALTHY CHURCH… At Cornerstone we are confident enough in the truth of the gospel that we don’t get nervous if someone doesn’t believe even on a core issue. Although we will never allow alternative teaching on core issues, we do believe in giving people time to realize the truth. ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS… People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has the tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life. Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2 ABOUT SALVATION… Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sins by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1 ABOUT ETERNITY… People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. John 3:16; John 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15; 1 Corinthians 2:7-9
