Statement of Faith

This Statement of Faith is merely a fallible human summary of what The Corner Church believes. Essentially we recognise the fallibility of man and the infallibility of God, and his Word. As stated in the first point, the Bible is the only reliable source and authority on what we believe.

The Bible

God has revealed and reveals Himself in the Bible. We believe that all Scripture (i.e. the 66 books of the Bible) is given by inspiration of God, is inerrant, infallible, possessing plenary inspiration in the original writings, and has been preserved with full integrity so that its teaching is absolute, final and our sole authority. The Bible is always sufficient for all matters of belief and practice.

We believe that the term "marriage" has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture,  marriage originates from the creation of the first human couple – Adam and Eve.    

We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. Sexual immorality is any form of sexual intimacy outside of a marriage between a man and a woman and this is sinful and offensive to God.

Marriage displays the nature of God in the sacrificial love Christ has for his bride the Church: “Christ loved the Church and gave Himself for her.” We are called to this love relationship in our lives.
