our values

A Biblical Worldview

“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV)

The Bible is the Word of God, without error, and the lens through which we view and determine all matters of education and life. It permeates every aspect of CCA. 

A Commitment to Parents

“Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul. … You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” Deuteronomy 11:18-19 (NKJV)

Parents are the foremost educators in their children’s lives. CCA will seek to strengthen, encourage, and support parents, serving families as an asset and an ally.

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV)

A Culture of Excellence

“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23 (NKJV)

CCA’s standard of excellence in all things allows students the opportunity to glorify God and experience His goodness as they endeavor to honor Him in all they do.

A Unique Calling

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10 (NKJV)

Children are fearfully and wonderfully made by their Creator (Psalm 139:14). Through robust offerings in academics, the arts, athletics, and more, an education at CCA is focused on Calling Prep. Students will have the opportunity to explore, discover, experience, and cultivate their unique callings, and enjoy the fulfillment and freedom of living in God’s purposes for their lives.

articles of faith

As a ministry of Cornerstone Chapel, Cornerstone Christian Academy is in alignment with and adheres to Cornerstone Chapel’s Articles of Faith. CCA leadership relies on the Articles of Faith for decisions related to faith, practice, policy, and operations.

  1. We believe there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all and governs all;
  2. We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ;
  3. We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings; His substitutionary atoning death; bodily resurrection; ascension into heaven; perpetual intercession for His people; and personal, visible return to earth. We believe that He is one and the same as God. He was fully human and fully God;
  4. We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower in ministry all who believe in Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, either at the time of or subsequent to regeneration, which is a separate work from the indwelling Spirit for salvation. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the exercise of all biblical gifts of the Spirit as reflected through the fruit of that same Spirit;
  5. We believe that all the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, and that they are the infallible rule of faith and practice;
  6. We believe all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as his/her personal Lord and Savior, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all of his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, assured of spending eternity with the Lord;
  7. We believe in the universal Church, in the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members;
  8. We await the pre-tribulation rapture of the Church, and we believe in the literal Second Coming of Christ with His saints to rule the earth, which will be personal and visible. This motivates us to holy living, heartfelt worship, committed service, diligent study of God’s word, regular fellowship, and participation in baptism and Communion;
  9. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church: 1) baptism, and 2) the Lord’s Supper. We practice baptism by immersion and regularly celebrate Communion according to the Scriptural guidelines found in 1 Corinthians 11:17-34;
  10. We believe in the laying on of hands for the sending out of pastors and missionaries, and in conjunction with the anointing of oil by the elders for the healing of the sick;
  11. We believe that marriage is exclusively the union between one man and one woman in a lifetime commitment to each other (Genesis 2:23-24; Matthew 19:4-6). Marriage reflects the relationship between Christ and the Church and provides for procreation, intimate companionship, and we believe is the only basis for any form of sexual expression. We believe that any intimate sexual activity outside of marriage is sin, and that only heterosexual romantic relationships are consistent with God’s design (1 Thess. 4:3; Ephesians 5:3).
  12. We believe that God disapproves any attempt to alter one’s gender (as revealed at birth) through surgery, medicine, appearance or otherwise and is a violation of God’s creative order (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 2:18-22; Romans 12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20).
  13. We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end and abortion is in direct violation of God’s law. We are unapologetically pro-life and believe that we must have concern for the physical and spiritual needs of our fellow persons, both preborn and born (Psalm 139:13, Isaiah 49:1, Jeremiah 1:5).
  14. We believe that in the beginning God created mankind in His image, and it is not in any sense the product of evolution. Mankind was originally created with the ability to live perfectly for God’s glory. Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. He created them, male and female, as the crowning work of His creation (Genesis 1:27, 31).
