Vision of Cornerstone Christian Fellowship
“To be a hope-inspiring family where each person operates at their full capacity in their God-given ministry.”
Isaiah 28:16 (NASB77)
"Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, " Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed."
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 experience transformation rooted in the Christ-like lifestyle. As lives are transformed, some will stay with our local body, while others will go out following the path God has for them.
As we host God's presence with open hands, we invite all to come and experience the atmosphere of love, hope, and fulfillment which revitalizes the soul. Like a hospital, we welcome anyone seeking the healing touch of God's presence, whether injured, broken, wounded, hopeless or helpless, to be ministered to by God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and us, His Body, as He leads.
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 healthy and 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.
