Our Beliefs

Learn about Cornwall’s vision, beliefs, and ways we live the Gospel.

Vision


Cornwall Church’s vision is to alter the spiritual landscape one life at a time.

What we Believe


We believe in God as creator and sustainer of the universe. God so loved his creation that he sent his son, Jesus Christ, to save the world.
We believe that Jesus was both God and man, born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life. He was crucified and died as a penalty for our sins and was bodily resurrected from the dead on the third day. He ascended to the Father’s right hand, where he is the head of the church and from where he is coming again to personally claim his bride, the church.
We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, dwells within all believers. He fills and refills believers in response to their yielding to his holy will. We believe the Holy Spirit was given for us to minister to needs both inside and outside of the church.
We believe in the Bible as the inspired Word of God and in its divine authority.
We practice water baptism by immersion; regular celebration of communion, prayer, and anointing with oil for physical, mental, and spiritual needs; and public use of an altar for prayer and petition, as well as confessing needs to God.

Living the Gospel


Cornwall is a movement of individuals seeking to live out God’s vision for our church.

God’s call on us not to simply “go to church” but to leave the building and “be the church.” To get “outside of the box” and make a difference in the lives of those we live around, work with, recreate together with and share life with.

With that in mind, there are three main facets to Cornwall: Come & SeeCommunity and Go & Be.

Come & See

We believe that as people enter the doors of Cornwall they discover the life-changing message of Christ.

Community

Then they immerse themselves with others in community where they can grow in the knowledge of God.

Go & Be

Subsequently, they live by serving others and entering in authentic, life changing relationships with them.


As Christ followers, our aim is to passionately, constantly strive for these five goals:


in the Word

to gatherings

in community

hope to the hurting

in relationships
