At The Cornerstone Project we value:
We believe in the power and effectiveness of prayer.

MT 6:9-13, EPH 6:18-20, PHIL 4:6-7, 1 THESS. 5:17-18
We believe personal relationships are not just important, they are necessary for spiritual health.

We believe that when God looks at his creation he sees not tribes or tongues, but hearts. Our mission statement reflects this belief, acknowledging that all people are either lost or found. As we faithfully and indiscriminately carry out our mission in the community, the result will be a multicultural, economically diverse body of Christ worshiping, growing and serving together.

CHILDREN AND YOUTH
We believe that children and youth need love, guidance, and consistent mentoring from adults to succeed. We desire to help children and their families overcome adversity and find hope, healing, and purpose.

We believe it is the church's responsibility to care for the needy. We recognize this responsibility has been handed over to the government and secular agencies. Our intention is to once again accept this responsibility in Covington by becoming partners in social service, unconditionally meeting physical and spiritual needs in the name of Jesus Christ.
MT 25:31-46, LK 4:16-21; 10:25-37, ROM 12:20-21; 15:1-2, GAL 6:9-10, JAS 2:15-17; 4:17,

We believe passion for service should be focused through quality, biblically based training. Trained believers will be better equipped to respond to the unique ways sin impacts our lives in areas such as health, finances, and relationships.

2 TIM 3:16-17, HEB 4:12
We believe in the power of working together. Our partnerships should advance the Kingdom and honor God, hence they cannot be entered into without prayerful consideration. When approached correctly however, we know that cooperation can accomplish far more than we could do on our own.
NEH 3, PS 133:1, ROM 13:1, 2 COR 6:14; 8 & 9, COL 4:5-6, 1 TIM 6:17-19, 1 PET 2:13-17
We believe it in the power of creativity and inspiration to overcome adversity. Many urban churches struggle to overcome the many challenges this type of ministry creates. Instead of viewing these challenges as obstacles, we are committed to viewing them as opportunities. Essentially, we are willing to think outside the box when considering how to achieve ministry objectives.
