HELPING PEOPLE KNOW AND OBEY JESUS
At Cornerstone, we want to be a church that knows Jesus and seeks to obey Him. As we gather each week to worship, our reason—our aim is to know Jesus and make him known to others.
This is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and the One You have sent—Jesus Christ.
If you love Me, you will keep My commands.
-John 14:15, 17:3 (HCSB)
Our desire is to pursue a life that glorifies God, as a community, encouraging one another towards obedience to His commands.
REACHING THE NEXT GENERATION
From the beginning, Cornerstone Church has been a church that desires to reach the next generation for Christ.
Yahweh is great and is highly praised; His greatness is unsearchable. One generation will declare Your works to the next and will proclaim Your mighty acts.
-Psalm 145:3-4 (HCSB)
We want to raise up leaders and pour into the next believer, the next worshiper, the next generation—so that God’s name will be praised forever. Our church is strategically located in Ames, Iowa, home of Iowa State University. We believe that the college campus is one of the most important mission fields in the world and we have made it our goal to reach these students while they are in Ames, so they can take the Gospel with them wherever their lives may lead.
The church is God’s way to impact a community, and the local church is the context to make disciples who know and obey Jesus. Cornerstone is actively raising up leaders to send out to plant churches in communities across Iowa.
My aim is to evangelize where Christ has not been named, so that I will not build on someone else’s foundation, but, as it is written: Those who were not told about Him will see, and those who have not heard will understand.
-Romans 15:20-21 (HCSB)
We want to continue building God’s Church to share Jesus, both regionally and globally. The Salt Network of churches working toward planting new churches to impact communities with the gospel.
