A MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR-
We seem to be sailing through strange and troubled waters in America today. The news is filled with reports of moral decay, political confusion, rampant and senseless crime, and the changing of long-valued standards of life in our country. Many feel that there are far more questions than answers and fear the future for themselves and their families.
Let me encourage you! The Bible has the answers for your many questions and offers hope in our troubled days. We at Cornerstone Baptist Church desire to share with you truths that do not change with the times and principles that assure strong and successful foundations for all aspects of life.
Thank you for taking the time to review our website. It is just one of the ways we are attempting to bring encouragement to those looking for hope in a seemingly hopeless world. Whether you live in the valley, are considering relocating here, or just browsing the web, it is possible that your visit to our site is not by accident.
Our desire is that the click of your mouse may in the near future lead to a personal handshake. As much as we try to share who we are online, obviously nothing substitutes for a personal visit to our church. When you visit, you will see why many have come to call Cornerstone their church home.
- Our Church is an active and exciting established ministry within the northeast valley.
- We offer opportunities for ministry for all ages.
- We emphasize the preaching and teaching of the Bible that is both instructive and relevent to meet today's ever demanding needs and problems.
- Our music is both uplifting and Christ honoring.
We would be greatly honored to have you pay us a visit in person and explore the possibility of making Cornerstone your church home away from home. Wouldn't you like to be a part of something that is making a difference? Well, now you can!
For most people, having a church close to home is a real convenience because it provides easy access and opportunity for involvement. However, four questions should always be addressed when considering a church:
1) Is the Church doctrinally sound?
(Do they teach what the Bible says?)
2) Is the Church evangelistic?
(Do they send and support missionaries, as well as win people to Jesus Christ?)
3) Is the Church separated from the world?
(Do they reflect a genuine and honest picture of Jesus Christ in their lifestyles?)
4) Is the church warm and friendly?
(Do they show love and concern for the needs of people?)
The great news is at Cornerstone Baptist Church we feel that we reflect these four standards. No matter your age or background, there’s a place for you in our church family! We invite you to come and see some good things God is doing! If you need refreshment and renewal, we invite you to visit our church. Here you will find encouragement, strength, and fresh purpose as you fellowship with our church family and hear the truths of God’s Word.
Enjoy exploring our website. It was designed just for you. And please take me up on the invitation to join us this Sunday for worship, a time many have found to be life changing. Until we get the opportunity to meet personally, may God richly bless your life. If I can be of help to you in any way, feel free to contact me at any time and please accept my personal invitation to visit any of the services.
