CORNERSTONE FRIENDS CHURCH IS PART OF THE
EVANGELICAL FRIENDS CHURCH – EASTERN REGION
We believe in a personal relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ, as a foundation for living.
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. (1 John 5:1)
We emphasize putting our beliefs into action. As we do so, we demonstrate love and concern for others. This is our example today in a world filled with hatred, violence and division.
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:36-40)
The Evangelical Friends Church does not advance new teachings or doctrines. Instead, we seek to rediscover New Testament teachings & apply these age-old truths to our lives.
As Friends we believe:
God is our Father
Jesus Christ is “the Word made flesh” for us.
The Holy Spirit is our Comforter, Strengthener, and Guide.
The Bible is the written Word of God, inspired by Him.
A person receives forgiveness through repentance for sins and belief in Jesus Christ.
The mission of the Church is to communicate the Good News of salvation to people everywhere.
