Cornerstone offers practical and academic training in a mission-oriented setting. We are an interdenominational evangelical bible college. We stand firm on the basic evangelical beliefs. We are open for discussion and difference of opinion on secondary matters, but seek to avoid controversies and extremes.
The Cornerstone one year program also called the certificate program, provides training for students who prepare for cross-cultural support ministries, short-term cross-cultural ministry and for those who for other reasons have limited time for training.
The course majors on biblical and theological subjects, but includes also missiological and communication courses to develop basic skills in sharing the gospel cross-culturally. Included in the Cornerstone one year program is a three-week hands-on cross-cultural mission experience (The cost for the cross-cultural mission experience is NOT included in the fees and will depend on the country you choose to go to).
Our certificate program at Cornerstone Bible College is accredited by the EEAA.
