ESTABLISHING CHURCHES

ESTABLISHING CHURCHES 1 - EVERY TRIBE AND TONGUE

JAKE STIMPSON | CHURCH-PLANTING | EKKLESIA | CHURCH | 1 PETER 2

What do you think of when you hear the word “church”? Do you envision an old building with a steeple and stained glass windows? Or maybe you think of an event that takes place Sunday mornings… But church is meant to be so much more for you than just a building or an event. God is doing something new in the world today as His people cry out for the real life of the church!

Raising Up Leaders 1 – A New Concept of Leadership

RAISING UP LEADERS

RAISING UP LEADERS 1 - A NEW CONCEPT OF LEADERSHIP

JAKE STIMPSON | LEADERSHIP | EARLY CHURCH | BOOK OF ACTS | EQUIPPING THE SAINTS | TRAINING

When Jesus launched His church, it was a kingdom operating under radical new concepts of leadership. Rather than finding leaders from among the nobility, the skilled, the strong, or any number of other criteria, Jesus found His leaders from among normal people coming from all walks of life. He took them, with all their hang-ups, imperfections, and flaws, and raised them up to become pillars in His new Kingdom. This was a radical new concept of leadership, one that is ingrained in the DNA of the church to this day. So what are you going to do about it? Will you let Jesus raise you up to carry the burden of leadership in His church? Or will you let others have all the fun? 🙂

A NEW CREATION

BRIAN SHULER | TRANSFORMED | RIGHT THINKING | SAINTS | HOLINESS | RENEWED | ROMANS 12:2

Romans 12:2 – “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Have your thoughts been transformed by the word of God? Has your way of thinking been renewed? If your attitude toward the church is that you get to critique and compare and find something you like… if you think of yourself more as a sinner saved by grace than a saint called to holiness… you need your thinking renewed.

LESSONS FROM THE LIFE OF SAINT PATRICK

LESSONS FROM THE LIFE OF SAINT PATRICK 1 - THE TRANSFORMATION OF IRELAND

JAKE STIMPSON | SAINT PATRICK | IRELAND | MISSIONS | EVANGELISM | REVIVAL | CHURCH HISTORY

He baptized over 120,000 people and planted 300 churches in a dark, violent foreign culture. He confronted paganism, superstition, witchcraft, and idolatry. He faced down cruel barbarian warlords and rebuked fierce slave traders. Because of him, an island nation found peace, prosperity and purpose. Who was this man? None other than Saint Patrick, a courageous and bold ambassador for Christ.

The Real Saint Valentine

THE REAL SAINT VALENTINE

THE REAL SAINT VALENTINE

JAKE STIMPSON | SAINT VALENTINE’S DAY | SEX | MARRIAGE | MARTYRDOM | PERSECUTION | ROMANS 13

It’s a story of torture, martyrdom, civil disobedience, sexual immorality… and smacking women with dead animals – Oh yes, the shocking truth behind the real Saint Valentine! 😉 Saint Valentine was martyred over 1700 years ago, but the lessons from his life are particularly relevant today. What’s the point of Biblical standards of sex and marriage? Is it ever right to disobey the government? How should we respond to suffering? Is there any hope in the darkness and confusion? What’s more valuable than your physical life?

Preaching the Gospel 1 – The Gospel is the Answer

PREACHING THE GOSPEL

PREACHING THE GOSPEL 1 - THE GOSPEL IS THE ANSWER

JAKE STIMPSON | PREACHING THE GOSPEL | GREAT COMMISSION | ROMANS 1 | ROMAN EMPIRE

What would you do if you lived under a tyrannical government with corrupt leaders who demanded your absolute obedience? Leaders who emptied the treasury for their own perverse pursuits, leaders of such moral depravity and brutal violence that it would shock even the most hardened heart? What would you do if the people around you were indifferent to suffering, if right and wrong didn’t mean anything anymore, if the whole world seemed to have gone mad all at once? That’s the world into which Jesus launched His church with a simple command – preach the Gospel. If the Gospel was the answer in the first century, the Gospel is still the answer today. Church, we need to get serious about proclaiming what Jesus has done.

The Cornerstone Vision – What Are We Doing?

THE CORNERSTONE VISION

THE CORNERSTONE VISION

JAKE STIMPSON | VISION | PREACHING THE GOSPEL | DISCIPLES | PLANTING CHURCHES | GREAT COMMISSION

Preaching the Gospel, making disciples, raising up leaders, and establishing churches until the whole earth is filled with the glory of the Lord. That just so happens to be our vision statement at Cornerstone, but it’s more than that. It’s what Jesus commissioned His people to do to spread His kingdom on the earth. It’s about seeing lives changed.

JAKE STIMPSON | REMEMBER | DEUTERONOMY | TRADITION | FORGET | NEW YEARS EVE

“Remember the days of old; consider the years of many generations; ask your father, and he will show you, your elders, and they will tell you.” (Deuteronomy 32:7) Throughout the Bible, God exhorts His people to remember, to not forget all He has done. Despite the constant exhortation, throughout every phase in their history, Israel continually forgot the works of God and opened themselves up to sin, discouragement, fear, and idolatry. As we finish up 2020, don’t be like Israel. Take time to turn to God and remember what He has done this year.

Longing for a Savior

LONGING FOR A SAVIOR

LONGING FOR A SAVIOR

JAKE STIMPSON | LUKE 1 | GABRIEL | MESSIAH | BIRTH OF JESUS | NATIVITY | MARY

In his book The Desire of the Everlasting Hills, author Thomas Cahill wrote, “Beneath the surface differences of each culture… there beats in human hearts a hope beyond all hoping, the hope of the hopeless… the hope of those who… seem to be waiting in vain, a hope – not for an emperor… but for a Just One.” After 400 years of silence, in the midst of political oppression and religious stagnation, the angel Gabriel appeared to a young woman named Mary. As he began to speak, he unleashed the most important news the world had ever heard, that the long-awaited Savior was coming to make all things right.
