Reaching Children and Families for Christ

Charter of the Wyckoff Christian Preschool & Kindergarten Ministry School Board of Cornerstone Christian Church

Mission Statement
Wyckoff Christian Preschool & Kindergarten is an educational ministry of the Cornerstone Christian Church. The program reflects the values and belief that God’s Word is the foundation of truth, and that God’s love should be the model for our lives. The Ministry Board, comprised of people from the church, oversees the preschool’s operation. The Ministry Board meets monthly with the Director and Head Teacher. The preschool is licensed by the State of New Jersey and is in full compliance with regulations established by the New Jersey Department of Human Services for “Child Care Centers.” The preschool was founded in September 1995. The Ministry Board and staff members of Wyckoff Christian Preschool & Kindergarten work diligently to provide children with a safe environment and a bountiful supply of creative materials and equipment designed to enhance learning and imagination. Our aim is to create an atmosphere that fosters educational, developmental and spiritual growth for the children. Our staff is caring and experienced and has the best interests of our children in mind.

Statement of Faith

  • The Bible is the Word of God. Every word is inspired by God and is without error in the original writings.

  • We believe God is the fitting object of our worship. There is one God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is perfectly and infinitely loving, just, and holy.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son, is the second person of the Trinity and is fully God and fully Man. Having always existed, He took on human flesh and was born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a perfect, sinless life on earth. His death on the cross paid the penalty for our sins and is the only basis for the salvation of those who trust in Him. He rose bodily from the grave and now is reigning in power with the Father. He offers us eternal life, forgiveness of sins, and peace through faith in Him. He is the only way to God. We await his visible and glorious return to the earth to claim His own and to judge.

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is God and is the third person of the Trinity. He dwells in the believer, glorifies Christ, and equips us for service.

  • We believe that man is created in God’s image, through sins has become unable to please God, and is condemned to suffer eternal punishment apart from accepting God’s gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

  • We believe that salvation is freely offered to all and comes only through Jesus Christ alone. Salvation provides the believer with eternal life in God’s presence.

  • We believe that Communion (the Lord’s Supper) and Believer’s Baptism by immersion should be celebrated. Communion will be open to all believers, regardless of church membership.

  • We believe that the church is composed of all those with personal faith in Christ as Savior and is expressed locally by this fellowship in worship, service, the spreading of the Gospel, and fellowship of believers.
