Cornerstone Christian University was born in 1999 but in April 2000, Cornerstone Christian University (formerly Cornerstone Theological Seminary) was incorporated as a Seminary and as a non-profit corporation for the purpose of offering strictly Biblically based education.
The trustee of Cornerstone established Cornerstone Christian University so that doctrinal differences that tear the Body of Christ apart should be a thing of the past in order for God’s truth to be shared. This way one may enroll and receive a Bible education regardless of one’s religious affiliation or educational background. Each lesson is individually designed, monitored and graded, and online and distance learning students can work at their own pace. Students are also given personal attention throughout their program and beyond it, if needed.
The name Cornerstone was chosen with the understanding that the principles and the teaching of CCU be founded on Jesus Christ who is the Chief Cornerstone that builds the house, as stated in (I Peter 2:6).
“Behold, I lay in Zion a Chief Cornerstone, elect, precious and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”
“The stone which the builders rejected has become the Chief Cornerstone,” verse.7.
Cornerstone strives to teach the Word of God as it is, without shame or excuses. Cornerstone Christian University is endeavoring to provide quality Christian Training in the areas of Biblical Studies, Pastoral Ministry, Pastoral Leadership, Theology, Counseling, and Christian Education. Our goal is to train men and women, called into the ministry, in the Word of God so that they may be able to go forth to reach the lost and dying souls with the Good News that Jesus saves. It is the belief of Cornerstone that all believers have a responsibility to go and tell all men of the absolute necessity of accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior.
The curriculum of these studies is provided through the use of regular textbooks, syllabuses, study guides, CDs, audiotapes, personal research, classroom lectures, and ministry training.
Cornerstone offers courses exclusively through Classroom Instruction. Distance Learning Study, Extensions, Internet. This combination of flexibility enables the student to start at any time, through Distance Learning or the Internet, or monthly, through extension classes. The student can study at his or her own pace and has no minimum time to complete his or her assignments.
