As part of our ministries, all team members have a responsibility to develop and exhibit mature Christian behavior. This should be the basic premise of your desire to work in a ministry position here at Cornerstone Church.
For the sake of unity at Cornerstone Church, people in positions of leadership, those who teach, and all ministry team members are required to uphold the doctrines and position papers of the Assemblies of God. These include, but are not limited to, the Statement of Fundamental Truths, belief in heterosexual marriage as the Biblical standard, and the sanctity of human life from conception to death. Those who teach otherwise may not participate in leadership or teaching positions, but are welcome to regularly attend Cornerstone Church, as well as participate in its ministries and events.
Our primary goal at Cornerstone Church is to model and teach others how to start and maintain God-pleasing, mutually-beneficial relationships. None of us are perfect at this, but the Apostle Paul's letters to Timothy and Titus teach us that leaders and teachers need to hold to higher standards. Other Scriptures, such as James 3:1 caution us that "not many should become teachers, my brothers. knowing that we will receive a stricter judgement". With these Scriptures in mind we exhort our team members to exemplify the highest moral commitment through maintaining a disciplined life of Bible reading and prayer.
As leaders, teachers, and team members at Cornerstone Church we know that providing an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and purity is a way of life measured by our character, commitment, and chemistry with others. Therefore, we exhort our leaders, teachers, and team members, just as Paul did Timothy and Titus to keep themselves pure by not interacting with any material or media that would be contrary to Scripture as pertaining to holiness, righteousness, and their testimony of such to this world. As Christians, we know that the way we live affects the way others perceive Christ. Therefore, as a leaders, teachers, and team members at Cornerstone Church, our goal to exemplify the best qualities of a mature believer, so that our conduct and appearance are never an embarrassment to Christ or Cornerstone Church. We do not see this as an imposition, but as followers of Christ and leaders, teachers, or team members at Cornerstone Church ee serve willingly and joyfully just as the Apostle Peter said we should.
