Cornerstone Church Milwaukee
What would happen if Christians in our city were empowered by the Holy Spirit and really began to obey Jesus, preaching everywhere, healing the sick, casting out demons, raising the dead, and bringing His love to our streets? There would be a revival of joy and freedom that would shake the entire community!
Cornerstone Church is a radical place to meet God and see Him move in power and love. We are dedicated to preaching the gospel, making disciples, raising up leaders, and establishing churches until the whole earth is filled with the glory of the Lord!
Preaching the Gospel
Jesus told His disciples, "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth" (Acts 1:8). Our calling as followers of Jesus Christ is to be His witnesses. Whether that means getting up in the middle of a college campus and preaching open-air, handing out Gospel tracts at a festival, befriending immigrants and refugees, or mowing lawns in the poorer neighborhoods, we are dedicated to spreading the life-changing message of Jesus to the world around us.
We don't want to see people won into the Kingdom and then left to wander on their own. We want to see people raised up to be real men and women of God, pursuing His call and changing the world for His glory. Jesus told us to, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 18:19). We intend to do just that, through small-group Bible studies, one-on-one discipleship, and college-level Bible courses taught through Solid Rock Ministry Training School.
Raising up leaders
We are dedicated to not just teaching people how to be godly men and women but to grab those with a call to full-time ministry and teach them to fulfill that call on their lives. We want to see men and women raised up and launched out worldwide as pastors, church planters, missionaries, and ministry leaders.
This is where things begin to get really exciting. Our goal is to plant city-transforming churches wherever God sends us. Somewhat tongue-in-cheek, we've told people that God has called us to plant 1,000 churches in 30 years, as long as that takes. The end is the tongue-in-cheek part. :) Jesus established His church and said that "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18). We want to follow His lead and the example of men like the apostle Paul in planting churches throughout Wisconsin, the nation, and the world.
Until the whole earth is filled with the glory of the Lord
Habakkuk prophesied, "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea" (Habakkuk 2:14). We're gonna preach the Gospel, disciple Believers, raise up leaders, and establish churches until that's a reality. We don't have the audacity to pretend we're the sole source of bringing God's presence here, but we're gonna work with fellow Christians and do what we can until the job is done.
Cornerstone Church. It's not about having a nice, quiet little church service. It's about revival. It's about a revolution. A revolution that started 2000 years ago and continues to this day. Hearts are being restored. The sick are rising up healthy. Those without hope have something to believe in. All because of one Man, Jesus Christ.
