At Cornerstone we define Stewardship as the careful, responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care. Steward Leaders give themselves to the greater good of others by holding personal accountability for results and outcomes.
The moment you walk through the doors at Cornerstone Church, you belong here and can consider this place your church home. Membership in the family of God is official when you confess your sins and receive Christ as Savior. You become a mature part of the family when you witness your faith by baptism and purposefully participate in a local body of believers to grow with each other and win the world for Jesus.
But just as a birth certificates don’t make a strong family—it takes active investment to do so—being a vital, contributing Steward and Leader of the church requires something deeper than membership. It requires action, passion, and engagement.
At Cornerstone Church, you become a Steward by seeing every resource (time, talent, treasure) as entrusted to you by God, then investing those resources to accomplish our God-given mission.
"Am I a Cornerstone Church Steward?"
Evidences of Stewardship Level Investment:
Connecting Purposefully: You participate in a cGroup.
Growing spiritually doesn't happen when we know what Jesus says; it happens when we do what he says. Application happens best within the context of community. “Circle are better than rows.” To grow spiritually, you have to be connected relationally. Transformative connections are made in small cGroups.
Serving Strategically: You are involved in regular, consistent serving as a Ministry Partner.
We believe when people engage in service, it leads to life change. Whether you serve on a ministry team in our church, in our community, or in the world, God calls us to serve one another. We want to help you know the joy and fulfillment of using your gifts to serve.
Inviting Intentionally: You are consistently inviting others to find the Father, a Family, and a Fulfilling Future with at Cornerstone.
As we become fully invested in the family of God, we invest in the other people in our lives so they can know true life, too.
Giving Systematically: You have a plan to faithfully support Cornerstone Church ministries through your finances.
Regularly, consistently supporting the ministries of the local church enables us to be a significant part of seeing God’s Kingdom come and his will be done here on earth.
