Children are a gift from God.
As parents, being part of a loving church family can help you raise your children in the ways of the Lord. It is in this church family that your children will receive love, make friends, grow and even find their purpose.
The bible says that it is an act of obedience by parents to offer their baby to the Lord (Mark 10:13) and a public declaration of their intention as parents to lay a foundation of Godly principles, with an intention to raise their child with Christian values (Deut 6:5-7) and to guide and educate their child in accordance with God’s work (Eph 6:14)
We celebrating these acts of obedience when parents bring their little ones to have Pastor Ed and Cristi pray with them.
Too many couples spend a great deal of time preparing for the wedding while not building a foundation. Before You Say, “I Do” our Pastors walk the couple through biblical perspectives and practical principles for a successful marriage.
Marriage mirrors God's covenant relationship with His people.
God created marriage as a loyal partnership between one man and one woman.
Marriage is the firmest foundation for building a family.
We see this parallel throughout the Bible, Jesus refers to Himself as the "bridegroom" and to the kingdom of heaven as a "wedding banquet."Scripture teaches that marriage is ordained by God and part of His original design for us as well as a foreshadowing of our eternal relationship with Him.
Cornerstone Prayer team is a group of members who have made a decision to be devoted in their prayer life, continue to grow in the Word, and constantly be lead by the Holy Spirit. We keep God's agenda the main priority, that all people be saved. The prayer team ministers during worship and outside the four walls of the church. If you are interested in joining the team see one of our Pastoral staff.
What is the meaning and significance of baptism?
A Move From Death to Life:
Baptism is a symbol of Christ’s burial and resurrection. Our entrance into the water during baptism identifies us with Christ’s death on the cross, His burial in the tomb, and His resurrection from the dead.
“Going under the water was a burial of your old life; coming up out of it was a resurrection, God raising you from the dead as he did Christ. When you were stuck in your old sin-dead life, you were incapable of responding to God. God brought you alive—right along with Christ! Think of it! All sins forgiven, the slate wiped clean, that old arrest warrant canceled and nailed to Christ’s cross.” Colossians 2:12-14 MSG
Who should be baptised?
Every person who has made the decision to believe in Christ. When Paul writes to the believers in Rome, he assumes that all of them have been baptized (Romans 6). The one requirement for baptism is belief in Christ!
“Those who accepted his message were baptised….” Acts 2:41.
