Cornerstone believe there is one God in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
God is sovereign in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
The Bible, as originally given, is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is the supreme authority in all matters of belief and behaviour.
Sinful human beings are redeemed from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death once and for all time of their representative and substitute, Jesus Christ, the only mediator between them and God.
Cornerstone believes that the holy universal Church is the Body of Christ to which all believers belong by God’s grace and through faith in Jesus Christ who is the Head of the Church.
The practical expression of the Body of Christ on earth is found in local churches with whom Cornerstone seeks to work as a partner in pursuing common aims as led by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit alone makes the work of Christ effective to individual sinners, enabling them to turn to God from their sin and to trust in Jesus Christ and empowering them to find their identity in God alone.
The Holy Spirit lives in all those he has regenerated. He makes them increasingly Christlike in character and behaviour and gives them power for their witness & recovery in the world, while we await The Lord Jesus Christ who will return in person, to judge everyone.
Like every corner of the world, Bexley has broken lives and broken families struggling with the effects of addiction in all its many forms. Cornerstone offers a real and achievable pathway to recovery and complete freedom from addiction through Spiritual and practical support.
We have been glad and privileged to partner with Cornerstone and its work through the Thursday Meetings and the Annual Recovery Course, both of which we host at Albany Park Baptist Church.
Through Cornerstone and the partnership with the various churches, we have seen lives being changed and people beginning to walk free from their past, able to face the future with hope and a renewed sense of joy.
I am delighted to commend this ministry and their crucial work in this community.
Cornerstone Recovery through Christ models:
Honesty and openness in walking with Jesus in weakness and vulnerability.
Acceptance of others as they are, in the hope of their recovery and healing in Christ.
Spiritual and practical support of one another in recovery. Reaching out across all traditions of the Christian Faith.
Effective evangelism among those who know their own need of spiritual help.
I am very happy to commend the ministry of Cornerstone to you as a way of helping those who are already in the church and those who are not yet there.
Since coming into ministry in this area I have been involved with the ministry of Cornerstone, Bexley.
I have recommended their services to people I know who are in need of shelter or goods, one of our congregation has volunteered at the Bexley Winter Shelter and I have had the real privilege to speak at the Sunday evening services on a number of occasions.
Every time I join them I come away blessed and thankful that this group of people offer so much of their time and energy to reach out to the ones on the edges of society.
Their impact on the lost and the lonely of this borough is fantastic, with many coming to a real and lasting faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ian, Alexa, and their team, do an amazing job of going where other ministers could only dream of going, and they have a fantastic way with the people they are reaching.
MY prayer for them is that God would continue the good work he has begun here and, maybe into other boroughs across London
We cannot honour Ian and the Cornerstone team enough. They are a vital part of our community and are relentless in their mission to transform lives with the love of Jesus.
Cornerstone provides a safe space for people from all walks of life where anyone can find acceptance, support and build lasting relationships.
Alongside the local church Cornerstone carries a message of hope and new life through Jesus and we are glad to stand alongside them in their mission to see recovery through Christ.
I'd like to highly commend Cornerstone to all those looking for a supportive and empowered group of people.
The love of Christ underpins and motivates all they do and is expressed in practical caring support and training to overcome life's biggest issues and problems and win through.
They've proved to be of enormous benefit to our community and Church and have helped transform the lives of several of our members.
Cornerstone grew out of Recovery Alpha courses which started at St John’s, Welling in 2010 and moved to Trinity Baptist Church shortly after under the leadership of Ian Moody.
St John’s has been delighted to share this work with Trinity Baptist, and endorses wholeheartedly what Cornerstone stands for and its future.
We believe in a God who transforms life through Jesus Christ.
We also believe in his Church working together to see his Kingdom come. God bless this ministry as it grows across the Borough.
