Beginning On Sunday morning at 9:15am we come together for our Christian
Growth Groups. At 10:15 we gather outside the sanctuary to greet each other and
guests. We invite guests to join us at this time and enjoy some coffee and meet
Music The music we sing at Cornerstone is a blend of old and new. We love
the doctrinally rich hymns of ‘old’ and enjoy the choruses of the twenty-first century.
We enjoy worshiping through music presented in the form of solos, groups, as well
as a choir. We desire that music lead us to worship and cause the word of Christ
to dwell in us richly (Colossian 3:17).
Body of Service Our service formally begins at 10:30am. During this time,
we sing several songs, offer prayers of praise and supplication to God, responsively
read Scripture, and give our offerings and tithes.
Sermons Preaching at Cornerstone is generally expositional, meaning that
it seeks to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage. We usually focus
on one book of the Bible at a time, systematically making our way through the text
and trusting God to use it as He pleases.
We exist to spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy
of all peoples through Jesus Christ.
Our mission is driven by our desire to join God the Father in magnifying the supremacy
of his glory through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. By grace through
faith we aim to ...
We believe that the all-satisfying supremacy of God shines most brightly through
sacrificial deeds of joyful love. The cry of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of our
people is for fresh initiatives, biblical values, and a decisive emphasis on relationships
Therefore, we embrace God's call for visible manifestations of love toward each
other, our guests, and our neighbors. With a fresh openness and outgoing spirit
to each other and to all new people, we aim to put ...
After being prayed through, wrestled with, and thought hard about for several years,
the pastoral staff has recently completed an update of the mission/vision statement
that was first produced in 1995. (See Pastor John’s introductory sermon to the initial statement.)
To better understand the convictions that motivate and drive us as a church family,
read through “The Vision and Values of Bethlehem Baptist Church”.
We are ...
We trust wholly in the sovereign grace of God in and over all things.
Under Christ and his Word the congregation is the final authority in church governance
with a Council of Elders who oversee and teach the people. We practice and teach
believer's baptism (by immersion).
We are committed to pursue all the fullness of God with use of his spiritual gifts
in the life of the church.
All the pastoral staff and elders embrace The Bethlehem Baptist Church Elder Affirmation of Faith
. Members are required to embrace the shorter Congregational
Affirmation of Faith.
We are convinced that 1) truth really matters, and 2) that right belief is essential
for sustained, persevering right living and affections—and we want to keep these
two in proper order. Right belief is not our ultimate goal. Rather, we aim for the
The mind is the servant of the heart. Knowledge exists for the sake of love.
And all theology worth its salt produces doxology.
Our desire is your happiness in God, for God is most glorified in us when we are
most satisfied in him.
