About Us

Hear from our students

At Cornerstone, I am able to take courses at cheaper tuition rates than other colleges. Plus, the professors are very friendly and every class feels personal.

Daniel Gowaty CCV Student

I loved taking the Biblical Counseling course last semester. All-in-all, that was one of my favorite courses that I have taken.

Caedryn McKenna CCV Student

Professor Jay quickly became a favorite professor of mine for his similar sense of humor compared to mine, but also his love for helping others in cultivating their own sound theology.

Daniel Milam CCV Student

One of my favorite parts about CCV is the community. I am always excited to come to class because everyone is so friendly and I know my presence is appreciated.

John Velleco CCV Student

If you're on the fence about coming to Cornerstone, then I say just do it! You'll end up having a great time and coming out of it with a degree that will help you no matter what you go into.

    Statement of Faith

    What We Believe

    Cornerstone College of Virginia (CCV) maintains an unqualified commitment to a historic, orthodox position on essential doctrines of the faith as expressed in this document. CCV’s approach to Scripture interpretation is from a grammatical, historical, and contextual viewpoint.

    1. The Bible is the divinely inspired, infallible, inerrant, and revealed Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16).
    2. God is revealed in the Scriptures as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, together referred to as the Trinity (Col.1:15-18; Acts 5:1-4).
    3. The Lord Jesus Christ is fully God. He was born of a virgin; He lived a sinless life; He performed miracles; He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; He shed His blood to save sinners; He rose bodily and was seen by eyewitnesses; He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and all the earth will see Him when He returns in power and glory (John 8:58; Isaiah 9:6; Isaiah 7:14; Matt 1:18-25; 2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Cor. 15:3-7, Acts 1:9-11).
    4. The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead and equal with the Father and the Son in every divine perfection. He convicts of sin regenerate, enlightens, endues for service, comforts, and guides believers (John 14:16-18, John 14:26).
    5. All men in their natural state are sinners, lost, alienated from God, and spiritually dead: “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,” (Roman 3:23) and, therefore, need salvation.
    6. Salvation is by grace alone, a gift of God, through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins according to the Scriptures (I Cor 15:3). Those who thus receive Christ by faith have their sins forgiven (Eph 1:7) and their hearts cleansed (Acts 15:9), become born of the Spirit, become children of God (John 1:12, 13,) are made new creatures in Christ (2 Cor 5:17) and are eternally secure (John 10:28).
    7. There are only two Scriptural Ordinances: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is a command of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20). The Lord’s Supper is for remembering Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection with the anticipation of His return (I Cor 11:26).
    8. Christ personally instituted the Church, which He commissioned to make disciples of all nations, to baptize believers, and to teach them to do all things He had commanded (Matt 16:17; 28:18-20).
    9. There are only two classes of mankind in God’s sight: saved and lost. The saved, those “Born Again
      through faith in Jesus Christ, go to be with Him in conscious blessedness after death and shall be raised bodily to live with Him eternally; the unsaved shall be separated from God at death and shall be raised bodily to be placed in eternal torment.
    10. “Born again” Christians live a life dictated by the Holy Spirit (Gal 5:16-25; Col 2:6) and yielded to God (Rom 6:13). All Christians are called to share their faith with others by word and deed.
