Origin & History of Cornerstone Church
Cornerstone Evangelical Free Church (CEFC) was founded in 1983 under the name “Cornerstone Community Church.” From the beginning, we at Cornerstone Church wanted to build a foundation on which all Christians agree and to allow those elements of Christian theology, over which there is considerable contention, to remain much less defined. So we strive to live by the ancient Christian Church maxim which says, “In essentials, we seek unity; in the non-essentials, liberty; and in all things, love.”
In order to communicate the fact that Cornerstone is a Christian Church, in 1989 the name was changed to “Cornerstone Christian Church”. However as time went on, the people of Cornerstone Church felt a greater and greater need to join our resources and efforts to do the work of God with those of like- minded Christians all over the world while, at the same time, remaining an autonomous (free) church. Therefore, in April 1992 Cornerstone Christian Church affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America. At that time we took the name Cornerstone Evangelical Free Church.
As a denomination, The Evangelical Free Church of America is an association of some 1,5200 autonomous Christian Churches united by a mutual commitment to serve our Lord Jesus Christ with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and obedience to the word of God. We are committed to cooperate with one another in ministry and fellowship as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission that Christ has entrusted to His Church. The growing ministry of the EFCA currently reaches to some 530 nations of the world including an additional 1,300 congregations.
