Everyone is welcome at Cornerstone.
When you arrive you’ll see children and adults of all ages, all walks of life, and a variety of ethnic origins. The highlight of our Sunday is our worship service: where we hear God’s word preached, express our hearts to God through music, reflect on our souls, and are transformed through encounter with God. After a time of refreshments and fellowship we have our Community Groups. This is where we focus our attention towards how we can love and encourage people in a smaller group setting.
What will you find at Cornerstone?
- A place to worship.
- Everyone is created in the image and likeness of God. That means we should have a richness of existence that is more than exciting experiences or stacks of stuff. That richness is found in relationship with our Creator, of which the highest expression is worship. In worship we express our hearts to God in song, hear His word, pray, find forgiveness and renewal in our relationships, and discover the joy of serving. We seek to extend worship to encompass all of life.
- A place to belong.
- Everyone needs a home—a place to be, a place of love, a place of acceptance, a place of joy. We are a diverse group—singles and seniors, nest builders and empty nesters, and professionals and workers from all over the world. Our home is not a lot of people “just like me.” We are different in many ways but one in Christ. That’s why our spiritual home is a place where no one is left out and everyone belongs.
- A place to become.
- If everyone is created in the image and likeness of God, then what should we look like? For us, it looks like growth. It looks like change. It is a process of becoming. We are people on a journey of following Christ. We are becoming the person God created each of us to be.
- A place to serve.
- As we serve God and our neighbor, we become a blessing to others.
We are a family.
Various Alliance members and workers explain what it means to be a part of the Alliance family.
Gathering for its first worship service in September 2010, Cornerstone was established by believers whose vision was a church where all people could feel welcome and find a “place to belong.” Our strength has been in welcoming those who are from various countries of origin, cultures, ethnicities, first languages, generations, life stages, vocations, social and economic classes, places of residence, and so forth. Rather than finding unity in the experience of common background, we have looked to our common Savior, common citizenship in heaven, and common faith. Our diversity combined with our unity has led us into a richness of life and worship that is uncommon.
Our founding members also came from various denominational traditions, but their united passion for living the spiritual life and mission to all people, here and abroad, led Cornerstone early on to associate with the Christian and Missionary Alliance.
