Cornerstone exists to glorify God and make followers of Jesus. Our strategy comes from Jesus Christ, the “Head” of Cornerstone. In His Word, Christ gives 4 basic commands for churches. At Cornerstone, we call them the 4 Corners: Rescue, Transform, Love and Serve. These are God’s measures of a healthy church, and so they’re our measures, too.
Jesus said to “Go into all the world” and share the great news of salvation. We take this seriously, beginning here in Prescott and reaching beyond through the rescuers (missionaries) we send to other nations. We invite you to be rescued, and to join the rescue. (Matt 28:18-20)
God empowers us to become like Christ. He actually changes our thoughts and choices as we renew our minds in Scripture and walk in the Spirit. This transformation takes place in relationship with other believers. We want to help you transform and grow in Christ. (2 Peter 1:3-5 , Rom 12:1 ,2 , Gal 5:16 , 1 Thess 5:11)
Jesus’ followers can be identified by their love for each other. People in Prescott should see that Jesus is alive and risen – because of our love. This shows in our congregation’s relationships. It also shows in our love for all people and for believers at other Gospel-preaching, Bible-believing churches. We want to help you love and be loved, as God designed. (John 13:34 ,35)
We don’t serve to win God’s favor or approval. Those have already been won for us at the cross. We serve for the same reason that birds sing and horses gallop – because it’s what God created us to do (Ephesians 2:10). As a result, serving with our spiritual gifts is the most fulfilling thing we can do.
We passionately believe that you will be most fulfilled when you discover and uncover the “good works” that God engineered just for you. Whether it’s making meals, caring for kids, pounding nails, greeting, organizing, teaching or one of many other callings, we want to help you find your spiritual gift and put it to use for God’s glory and your fulfillment in Him.
