Our Mission

As A Church: Cornerstone Assembly of God exists for the glory of God. It is our desire to glorify Him by growing in our love for Him and for each other. This is accomplished through Bible instruction, study, gathering, worship, prayer and the encouragement we receive participating in evagelism, missions and other caring ministries. We are here for the Lord, for the least and for the lost.

As A Community: We partner locally with Agape Distribution, Compassionate Care, Elizabeth New Life Center and the Alpha Center and other local agencies to help those in need here in Shelby County.

Globally: Cornerstone Assembly of God supports missionaries around the world. We are involved in feeding programs, clean water wells and orphanages, all with the intent of sharing the gospel of our Lord and Savior.

Church Planting: Cornerstone Assembly of God took a step of faith in the spring 2015 and planted CornerstonePiqua in the city of Piqua Ohio. Young and old are coming to Christ and finding a home in the this Jesus driven ministry.

Our beliefs

As a local church body, Cornerstone Assembly of God believes in one holy God, Creator of the universe and all people. We also confess our rebellion against Him and reconize that justice demands death as a penalty for our sin. We believe that Jesus lived a perfect and sinless life and died on the cross as our substitute. Three days later He rose from the grave, triumphant over sin and death. Through faith in Christ, we are freely and graciously forgiven by God, justified in His sight and promised eternal life. God restores us to fellowship with Himself and with each other and equips us by His Spirit to live for His glory.

Cornerstone Assembly of God is in cooperative fellowship with the "Assemblies of God" denomination. These are 16 tenets of faith that all Assemblies of God churches adhere to. 

This list is derived from the official Statement of Fundamental Truths.

WE BELIEVE...The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.

WE BELIEVE...There is only One True God–revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).

WE BELIEVE...In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son, Jesus was both human and divine. 

WE BELIEVE...though originally good, man willingly fell to sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world. 

WE BELIEVE...Every person can have restored fellowship with God through 'Salvation' (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior). [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG] 

WE BELIEVE...and practice two ordinances—(1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation. 

WE BELIEVE...the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a Special Experience Following Salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times. [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG] 

WE BELIEVE... The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is ‘Speaking in Tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles. 

WE BELIEVE...Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christlike. 

WE BELIEVE...The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe 'the Church' is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ. 

WE BELIEVE...A Divinely Called and Scripturally Ordained Leadership Ministry Serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church and to meet human need with ministries of love and compassion. 

WE BELIEVE...Divine Healing of the Sick is a Privilege for Christians Today and is provided for in Christ's atoning work.(His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins). [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]

WE BELIEVE...in The Blessed Hope—When Jesus Raptures His Church Prior to His Return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever. [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]

WE BELIEVE...in The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.

WE BELIEVE...A Final Judgment Will Take Place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in what the scripture calls a lake of fire.

WE BELIEVE...and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. 'And so shall we forever be with the Lord!'
