In the last few decades, church has become market driven.  Our culture demands instant gratification; if it doesn't taste good, smell good, sound good, and feel good, then it's not going to sell to the average person.  Tragically, many churches are modeling this technique for church growth at the expense of what really matters.

Church is not about entertainment; yet many churches today tailor their services to cater to the insatiable desire of their congregations to be entertained.  Of course, they have camouflaged their product with religious words and even bible verses, but if you remove the sanctimonious wrappings, there is very little difference between the entertainment of the world and the so-called worship of many "emerging" churches.  Sadly, many Christians are more impressed with the appearance and experience of the worship service rather than the structure and substance of that worship.

Cornerstone Baptist Church is a traditional Baptist Church.  We sing from the hymnal those timeless hymns of faith which honor our God and exalt His virtues.  I preach expositionally through the bible.

As the pastor, my heart is burdened to preach and teach the word of God.  It is my prayer that each individual who enters the doors at Cornerstone will be challenged to a deeper devotion to the Lord and greater godliness in his or her daily life (1 Timothy 4:8).

Christianity is not religion, it's a relationship.  I want to help you develop a deep and personal relationship with the living God; I want to help you show-forth the righteousness of Christ through daily cleansing and yieldedness to His word; and, I want you to grow to spiritual maturity in Christ so that you can fulfill God's will for your life and "bear much fruit" for the glory of God.

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God." (Colossians 1:10)
