At Cornerstone we believe that the church exists to be the vehicle of Hope and the message of Jesus Christ and his Kingdom to the world. We believe it is the mandate of the church to love and care for those not just in our church but in our city. It is in this space of liberating liturgies and sacramental fire that followers of Jesus can be challenged, inspired and empowered in Pentecostal peacemaking.
Our desire is to be a church where you can come and encounter the genuine presence of God in a tangible way, that inspires in us a hope for the future, develops a desire to seek God and build relationship with him, and seek first his Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven, where you are part of Gods plan to bless and rebuild this city.
In Jesus' manifesto in Luke 4/ Isaiah 61, the heart of God is for His people to reach and help those in need, "the good news to the poor, freedom for the oppressed, sight to the blind". The passage teaches of the restoration that follows and the establishing of those who were previously the lost and needy, as pillars of strength, righteousness and integrity. A Canopy of his Beauty.
Out of every hurt can come a great testimony of God's restoration, and out of your testimony, hope rises for others. This is at the core of who we want to be as a church. This is who we are and who we want to become.
