We are an elder-led church focused on spreading the Gospel through Word-centered preaching, worship music that is contemporary in style, but traditional in substance, authentic fellowship, and discipleship for all ages and stages of the Christian life. We invite you to join us as we worship Christ each week through song and the preaching of the Word.
You can expect to hear quality music in a contemporary style that is focused on Christ-exalting lyrics, both from modern-day Christian musicians and from classic hymns of the faith. Corporate worship at Cornerstone includes prayer, Scripture reading and a Bible-centered message from our pastor, Dr. Brian Walls. Babies and children ages 4-8 will learn about Christ’s love for them in safe and loving classrooms available for children’s church.
Translation from English to Spanish is available during worship service
Our mission is simple if not always easy.
Cornerstone Community Church is called to glorify God by sharing His truth and love with the people of the local and worldwide community, so as to demonstrate the Bible as the foundation for living and Jesus Christ as the Chief Cornerstone of spiritual and eternal life.
Our vision is for faithfulness
Cornerstone is focused on faithful stewardship of our new facility and the time, talents, and treasure of every member in order to create a dynamic, growing church that is effective in evangelism, discipleship, and service, and committed to Biblical worship and fellowship.
