The Mission of Cornerstone Church is to make disciples through prayer and the faithful teaching and preaching of the Word of God; to equip each member with the tools to win others to Christ, to love each other and to build our lives on the principles and firm foundation of Jesus Christ.
HISTORY OF CORNERSTONE
In the summer of 1998, Rev. Maxwell Ware felt an urging from the Lord to begin a church. The call from the Lord was scriptural based. Several scriptures were impressed on Pastor Ware:
(1) "Lift up your eyes, the fields are white and ready for harvest;"
(2) In Isaiah it says: "Who shall we send, and who shall go for us."
Pastor Ware also was impressed with a message by T.D. Jakes that stated, "Your decision releases your destiny." God does not force anyone to do anything, but he presents an opportunity.
Also, there is a standing command from the Lord “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature."
