“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”—Acts 1:8
God the Father sent the Lord Jesus into the world for the purpose of redeeming the world for His own glory (John 3:16). Likewise, those who have experienced new life in Christ are sent by Christ in the power of the Spirit to be His witnesses to every nation under heaven (John 20:21; Matt. 28:19-20).
At Cornerstone, we follow the pattern of our missionary Savior, who spanned heaven and earth to save us. We believe that we are to be on mission at all times in all places; thus, we strive to embody the love of Christ in the cross to all people everywhere—beginning with our own parish and extending to the uttermost parts of the world. It is our expectant hope to see Christ transform lives, communities, and cultures as we faithfully bear witness in word and deed to the renewing and recreating power of the gospel (Col. 1:19-20).
