Ministry Philosophy

Mission Goal

“To develop and mature Christians who will then develop and mature other Christians.”

This is done thru our process in our “Ministry Philosophy”.

This process looks like this:

  1. Clarity - It must be able to be followed clearly.
  2. Movement – It must move people thru it.
  3. Alignment – Everything and everyone must align with it.
  4. Focus – Everything done must be intentional.

Our Ministry Process is simple here at Cornerstone Baptist Church.

We ask our members to do three things:

1. Love God.

2. Learn of Christ.

3. Live out your Faith.

We encourage everyone to begin with Loving our God. This is the place to start on your Christian journey. While part of this is coming to the place of worship, it also involves becoming a believer in Christ unto salvation. If you are not a Christian, worship of God is impossible. You must be "born again" to be able to offer true worship to God.

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24)

We have a strong desire at Cornerstone Baptist Church to see believers strengthened in their knowledge of the Word of God and the commands of Christ to His Church. This belief leads us to the second stage of the Ministry Process. Learning of Christ is much more than just a class on doctrine or even a bible study. Here a believer can learn how to interact with others and develop Christ-honoring biblical relationships with other Christians.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:29-30)

This final part of the Ministry Process is the manifestation of the other two. If we "Love our God" and "Learn of Christ" it stands to reason that we would be Living out our Faith. This can be done through ministering to someone or in some other way that we might show our faith to the community at large. This is the simple truth that those who "Love God" want to "Learn of Christ" and those who  "Learn of Christ" want to "Live out their Faith".

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: (Ephesians 4:11-12)

Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. (James 2:17-18)
