Gathering, Growing and Going
Cornerstone's mission is to foster a teaching congregation that is Gathering, Growing and Going.
- Gathering: introducing people to Jesus Christ
- Growing: moving people from believer to follower
- Going: making a Gospel impact beyond the church
The strategy behind this mission is to challenge each individual to discover and advance through the four stages in the Tree of Life.
- The Seed: discovering Cornerstone membership
- The Sprout: discovering ministry opportunities
- The Growing Plant: discovering spiritual maturity
- The Fruit: Discovering an individual life mission
Loving God, Loving Others, Proclaiming Christ
With a focused mission and effective strategy, Cornerstone keeps a directed vision by having three core values.
- Loving God: "Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment." - Matthew 22:37-38
- Loving Others: "And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." - Matthew 22:39-40
- Proclaiming Christ: "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." - Matthew 28:19
