Chasse of Ambazac, Gilded copper, champlevé enamel, rock crystal, semiprecious stones, faience, and glass. Constructed of radiant gold and adorned in semiprecious stones, this magnificent chasse needs no figural imagery to evoke Heavenly Jerusalem. The resplendent edifice conveys the divine light with which the heavenly city glowed, even presenting illuminated stained-glass windows interpreted in delicate enamel.

 

We are a community of believers whose desire is to spread the message of salvation and new life through Jesus Christ to people of all races and nationalities. Our church is a ministry that is helping others know who our Lord and Savior really is. We invite you to join us in sharing the unsearchable riches of Christ together – the healing, reconciliation, joy, peace, and understanding that comes from having a true relationship with God.

Luke 9:28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. 31 They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem. 32 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him. 33 As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what he was saying.) 34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and covered them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.” 36 When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves and did not tell anyone at that time what they had seen.

 

 

Why cornerstone?
Our church name “Cornerstone” is derived from a passage of the Bible that declares Jesus Christ as the chief component of the church’s foundation:

See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” – 1 Peter 2:6

The Meaning of Our Motto
Our motto is to “preach the unsearchable riches of Christ” in that we believe that God outpours blessings on those who follow Christ. We also believe that God blesses us in far greater ways than we can possibly imagine.

The Ministry
We offer various activities for spiritual guidance and growth, particularly in studying the Bible together and engaging in group prayer. We are especially interested in teaching the basics of Christianity (who Christ is, salvation, and other subjects) to those who are new to the faith.
Activities: Retreats, Lenten prayer chains, Church Membership Studies, Monthly Night Watch prayer

PSALM 16
1 Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”
3 I say of the holy people who are in the land, “They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”
4 Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more. I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods or take up their names on my lips.
5 LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
