Cornerstone St Andrews exists for the glory of God. To His glory and by His grace, we seek to encourage and build one another up as disciples of Jesus, living out the Gospel in every sphere of life, demonstrating God’s character in the way we love and care for our neighbours, our community and our world. We believe that the Gospel of Jesus is the only hope for the world and that on a daily basis we desperately need to put ourselves under the authority of God’s Word and seek the empowering presence of His Spirit in order to carry out the Great Commission of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our values have a profound bearing on what we do practically as a church. They mean, for example:

The church was never meant to be about people merely receiving blessing or good things from God. The pattern over and over in the Bible is that people are blessed by God in order to pass that on to others. Quite simply, this means that Cornerstone must be outward looking. We do not simply receive gifts from God and keep them to ourselves. Actually, that would be the quickest way to destroy the gifts. Rather they are to be passed on for the benefit of others. This means that as a church our mindset is to be one of constant care for our neighbours and the constant prayer that God would show us ways in which we may pass on blessing to those around us. We embark in this way on a wonderful adventure to see whom God might wish to touch and bless through our lives - both individually and corporately.
