OUR VISION AND MISSION
We exist to see lives changed, communities transformed, and the world revolutionized by the good news of Jesus Christ.
Christ is the Cornerstone, of everything we are and everything we do. It may sound cliché but to know God is to Love God and in order to know Him we must begin with His Word.
In loving God we:
Submit to His will.
Share our resources.
Serve our neighbors.
Send disciples to all corners of the world.
Our love for God is manifested in our love for people.
As disciples of Jesus we exist to serve our neighbors and understand that often times this means we have to leave the comfort of our couches and the familiarity of our church pews.
We believe that discipleship isn't something that can be can be taught in a classroom, it is a trait learned by men sharpening men, older women growing in relationship with younger women, youth who aren't segregated simply because of their age, and a leadership that not only encourages but provides opportunities to serve our community.
Most importantly all of this is centered on a foundational relationship with Jesus Christ, our Cornerstone.
Why a New Church
Texas is growing astronomically. In fact, between 2000 and 2010 the growth rate of Texas was double that of the nation. Consequently, just to keep up with this growth Texas needs to plant 1000 new churches per year with congregations of over 450 people in each church body. Couple this with the fact that there is already an estimated 19 million people unchurched in the state of Texas and it is safe to say that Texas desperately needs more churches. That's where
Cornerstone comes in. Our goal is to reach the sum of these 19 million unchurched beginning in the Greater Deer Park area and then multiplying our resources and efforts outward to all corners of the earth as we equip disciples to make disciples and plant more churches.
