Building use request – Members

Cornerstone Baptist Church views it’s facility as a gift from God.  We believe it is to be a tool used for ministry to reach our community with the gospel and train believers to fulfill the work of the church ministry, However, facility use will not be permitted to persons or groups holding, advancing, or advocating beliefs or advancing, advocating, or engaging in practices that conflict with the church’s Article of Faith.  Nor may facilities be used for activities that contradict or are deemed by the Deacon Board as inconsistent with or contrary to the church’s Article of Faith.  The Deacon Board will interpret the Statement of Faith, and is the final decision maker on whether a person or group will have permission to use church facilities.  The Deacon Board will only review requests when a church representative needs an interpretation of the Article of Faith.  This policy applies to all church facilities, regardless of whether the facilities are connected to the church’s sanctuary, because the church sees all of its property as holy and set apart to worship God.

Believing it is a gift from God, we realize we are stewards of what He has given us. As stewards, we feel that we must maintain a neat and pleasing appearance and take care of the gift God has entrusted to us.

Our goal is to present a clean and orderly appearance of Cornerstone Baptist Church to the glory of God. We appreciate your help in working towards this goal.
