Cornerstone United Reformed Church

WHO DO WE BELIEVE IN?

The message at the heart of Christianity is simple yet so profound. It is the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ who came to earth as a real human being to suffer and die so that we might be made alive in Him. He was crucified and resurrected for us, so that we could be saved and secured forever through his blood that he freely shed for us! And now we live by faith in Him, for Him and unto his praise and glory.

WHO ARE WE?

CORNERSTONE One of the metaphors of scripture describing the church is that of believers as “living stones” being built up into a spiritual house or “temple” with Christ as our Cornerstone. And so everything about our church is to be squared up and founded upon Christ. Christ alone is “the way, the truth and the life.” This “building” is dynamic and alive as the Holy Spirit makes His dwelling place in us!

UNITED We do not belong to the United Church of Canada but we are united in the gospel of Christ that sets us free from sin and death! By faith in Christ we belong body and soul to Him become members of one another. And so we deeply care about the faithfulness of our sister churches. We subscribe to the three forms of unity (linked under beliefs) and promise to continue together in the historic, apostolic Christian faith in an orderly way. As churches we regularly gather together to encourage one another in missions and to hold one another accountable.

REFORMED Though God is awesome and holy, yet he stoops down to our level so as to lifts up our hearts to Himself. He helps us do this through his Word and Sacraments (Baptism and the Lord’s Supper). By grace alone we are saved, through faith alone, and that not of ourselves, it is the gift of God! And so our worship is God-centered and traces its roots in history. We give our faithful God and Father all the glory, rejoicing in His covenant faithfulness to us and to our children.

CHURCH In his eternal love and kindness, God has called us out of darkness and into His marvelous light and made us belong to him. As children of God we love our heavenly Father and so we gather as a family to worship, singing the praises of our God and King. We aim to grow in our love for one another as we study the scriptures and pray in small groups in one another’s homes. And we are passionate about the mission of God, that all nations and peoples would praise and glory in our great God and Savior!
