Corona Church of the Open Door Mission Statement, “Go there for and make Disciples!”
Making Disciples both locally and globally is what Corona Church of the Open Door is about. We use culturally relevant methods (without compromising the living word) to reach people who have no relationship with Christ and little or no experience with the Church. We clearly understand that it will take teamwork to make a dream work. Jesus never sent His disciples out alone but to work in teams.
To Make Disciples Out Of All Men For Christ’s Sake! The Vision is to develop passionate followers of the Lord Jesus Christ who bring the transforming power of God to the lost and hurting – authentic disciples making authentic disciples.
We believe in the plenary-verbal inspiration of the accepted canon of the Scriptures as originally given and that they are infallibly and uniquely authoritative and free from error of any sort in all matters with which they deal, including scientific and historical as well as moral and theological.

We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as ONE God existing in THREE persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible. | Matthew 28:19 | II Corinthians 13-14
We believe in the full historicity and perspicuity of the Biblical record of primeval history, including the literal existence of Adam and Eve as the progenitors of all people, the literal fall and resultant divine curse on the creation, the worldwide cataclysmic deluge, and the origin of nations and languages at the tower of babel. | Genesis 11:1-6 |
We believe in the creation, test and fall of man as recorded in Genesis; his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to divine righteousness. | Romans 3:10-18 |
