The vision of Cornerstone Missions is to convey the Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Christ’s commands in his great commissions. To that effect, we are sent and send others (John 20:21) to faithfully preach the gospel of truth in His name (Luke 24:47) to all of creation (Mark 16:15), witnessing in the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8), and to make disciples of Christ, not simply converts (Matt. 28:19-20).
We do this by partnering with and sending out missionaries, providing opportunities for the Cornerstone flock to develop a heart and calling for missionary work, equipping them to make missions personal, and empowering them to see the value and impact of missions in their lives and the lives of others, all to the glory of God alone.
John 20:21 Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you."
Luke 24:47 and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
Mark 16:15 And he said to them, "Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.
Acts 1:8 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."
Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

MISSIONS OPEN HOUSE
Sunday, October 8, 2023
Please welcome our missionaries at their display tables in the Celebration Center on this very special Missions Open House Sunday. This is a great opportunity to meet some of our missionaries and get a better understanding of some of the ways that Cornerstone seeks to connect to the world.
Special guest speaker, Gabriel de Guia, Executive Director of EPC World Outreach will preach Sunday morning in both services.
You are invited to stay for lunch following the second service. Please take time to introduce yourself to some of our guests and be encouraged by learning more about their ministry.
There are needs to be met from our neighborhoods next door to around the globe. Is God calling you to take action? Cornerstone hosts mission trips of various lengths and locations, everything from reaching out to our local community overseas.

MISSIONARY CARE GROUPS
High Impact for the Kingdom
- Do you like to hear about how God’s Spirit is moving across the world today?
- Are you looking for a way to get involved in missions?
- Would you like to get together with 6-8 others who share the same love for missions?
Low Impact of your time;
CORNERSTONE IS SEEKING PEOPLE TO JOIN EXISTING MISSIONARY CARE GROUPS!
Missionary Care Groups meet once a month to pray for supported missionaries and visit them when they are in the area. This is an incredible way to have a high impact at home and around the world while having a low impact on your schedule.
