In case you weren't able to be with us for our time together yesterday, here's what you missed: Worship Gatherings Pastor Rob continued our study of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23.

Wednesday Wisdom 06.21.17

If Jesus has died and made full payment for our sins, however, there is no payment left for us to make on them. God can’t punish two people for the same offense. If Jesus has taken our defilement into himself, there is no stain left upon us. The foul spot has finally been purged away, transmitted to Christ. Therefore, because God is faithful and just, and the penalty...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... We live in a world in which there is turmoil both externally and internally. The God who created all things, in His own time and His own way, will deal with all turmoil. While we live in this world, we will continue to be surrounded by unrest, but the God of peace can produce a rest within His people as we walk in the power of the Holy...

Living in Contradiction to God’s Wisdom

The book of James is the wisdom literature of the New Testament. As such, it describes what a life of wisdom looks like. When viewed in its proper context, James is describing the impact of the gospel upon those who humbly surrender to God and His authoritative word. The gospel rescues us (Rom. 1:16). It rescues us from our sin and its consequences (Eph. 1:7).&n...

Wednesday Wisdom 06.14.17

The advantages of afflictions, when the Lord is pleased to employ them for the good of his people, are many and great. Permit me to mention a few of them; and the Lord grant that we may all find those blessed ends answered to ourselves, by the trials he is pleased to appoint us. Afflictions quicken us to prayer. It is a pity it should be so; experience testifies that a lo...

It is grace at the beginning, grace at the end. So that when you and I come to lie upon our deathbeds, the one thing that should comfort and help and strengthen us there is the thing that helped us at the beginning. Not what we have been, not what we have done, but the grace of God in Jesus Christ our Lord. The Christian life starts with grace, it must continue with grace,...

In case you weren't able to be with us for our time together yesterday, here's what you missed: Worship Gathering During our morning service, Pastor Rob examined the ordinance of baptism. We saw that baptism is reserved for believers (Acts 2:38,41), and that the ceremony itself is powerless to save (Rom. 10:9-10). Baptism should be practiced by immersion, and has a fou...

This Sunday at Cornerstone Church... Our morning service will focus on the two ordinances given to the church: baptism and the Lord's Supper. Both of these ordained celebrations point our attention to the work of God through our Savior, Jesus Christ. While the Lord's Supper provokes meditation upon the torn body and spilled blood of our Savior, baptism pictures our union ...
