God’s Design for the Church: Foundation

This past Sunday at Cornerstone we started a new sermon series on the Church.

The review was so positive that I immediately found a copy at my local library. I...

The music is the song “Quiet”...

I just completed a major overhaul of our church’s website last night. Over a year and a half ago, Cornerstone began to expand through the planting and revitalization of new church campuses. Since that time, the Cornerstone Network has expanded to 6 campuses. When this began, we changed our original domain, BethaltoChurch.com to CstoneChurches.com. Our desire was to communicate that we were expanding to include more than one...
