Vision of Cornerstone Christian Fellowship
“To be a global-impacting church where each person operates at their full capacity in their God-given ministry.”
It is a place where each person feels welcome and safe and is engaged in ministry to each other and to God. We have an atmosphere of love, respect, and encouragement, where Holy Spirit empowers us and co-labors with us to reveal Christ in everyone, to release their destiny and engage the Kingdom. As they fulfill their destiny, some will stay with our local body, while others will go out and impact other parts of our nation and the world.
The five-fold ministries of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher are in place and functioning within the body, but are hidden as a part of the body, acting as servants of the servants. They are mentoring those that are more mature in their faith, who in turn are mentoring those who are still growing in their faith, as each one has a part to play.
The multi-faceted expressions of God are continually being revealed, and each person finds their completeness in Him. Each person pulls on God with their ever-increasing faith, and continues to grow in their knowledge of Him.
Mission of Cornerstone Christian Fellowship
“To take each person through the stages of rest, refreshing, and restoration and equip them to be fully functional in their God-given ministry.”
It is a place of cutting-edge teaching through the Sunday morning messages, various classes, focused intensives, and specialty small groups, which will facilitate accelerated spiritual growth of each person that engages in them.
Personal relationships are very important as an aid to spiritual growth, as they help smooth off the rough edges and polish our character, as well as being an expression of the unified parts of the Body of Christ.
Evangelism and church growth is encouraged through “seek the seekers,” which means that each person is always aware of and looking for Holy Spirit’s direction to connect with those who are seeking God outside of the church walls.
As new people come into the church, they first experience rest, realizing that they no longer need to strive or work to be a Christian and have a relationship with God, and that the old covenant law that put burdens on them is gone. They then experience refreshing, which removes their filters, burdens, guilts, and religious laws that keep them from seeing God as He truly is, as a God of pure love. Finally, they experience restoration, which brings them to the understanding of their true God-given nature, the ability to find their function within the body of Christ, and to get equipped to do that ministry to which they are called.
