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 two-year program at Cornerstone Bible college also called the Diploma program in Intercultural Studies, prepares missionary candidates for cross-cultural work. Students who finish Cornerstone’s diploma program successfully are prepared for ministries as: pioneer church planting, church nurture, support and aid ministries, ‘tent making’ situations, etc.

Beside biblical studies, the second year majors on missiology, intercultural studies and cross-cultural communication. Spiritual and personal formation courses encourage students to develop their leadership skills. Included in the second year is an internship of six weeks hands-on mission experience in a cross-cultural setting (The cost for the six week mission experience is NOT included in the fees and will depend on the country you go to).

Our Cornerstone Bible college diploma program is accredited by the EEAA.
