Every Church is Unique because it is made up of Unique People…
This is Who WE Are!
This Is Who We Are
An 'ordinary Church'
In many ways, we are an ‘Ordinary Church’. That is something we value. We do not imagine that we are the only Church, or the best Church in the World or the most spiritual.
We are ordinary Christians, who have faith in an extraordinary God. It’s God that makes our Church, or for that matter any Church special.
Cornerstone Christian Church has been in Deception Bay since 1948 when it was founded, it was known as Deception Bay Methodist Church.
In 1977 The Methodist Church merged with much of the Presbyterian Church and the Congregational Church to form the Uniting Church.
As there was no merger in the Bay Area, both Churches have remained to this day, with our Church maintaining much of its Methodist heritage and faith.
We have been at our current site for about 30 years.
In particular, we choose not to accept the ruling of the National Assembly that allowed for Same-Gender Marriage. In taking this stand, we have aligned ourselves with the Assembly of Confessing Congregations of the Uniting Church.
This is a group of Churches spread across Australia, which are seeking to call the wider Church back to a straight forward and traditionally ‘Protestant’ view of Scripture and Doctrine, consistent with our heritage.
We also hold to the Apostles and Nicene Creed along with the Westminster Confession of Faith and Methodist Articles.

who we are
I could go on and list many such points, that would be shared by most Christian Churches.
If you need to read on, check out the ‘Articles of Faith of the Wesleyan Church’. It is a three thousand word statement of Methodist Doctrine.
How We Operate
