About Caring Ministries
The Word of God commands all believers in Jesus Christ to love one another.
In fact, Jesus said our love for one another would demonstrate to the world that we are truly His disciples!
Perhaps nothing in the believer's life is so important, apart from loving God, as caring deeply about other's joys and sorrows, trials and temptations, needs and desires.
"...love one another deeply, from the heart." 1 Peter 1:22
Our Caring Ministries Department is here to help facilitate that process.
the Body of Christ at Cornerstone is served by a dedicated team of Pastors and Deacons who oversee the ongoing ministry of caring. But they can't do all the caring by themselves. That's much too great a burden to bear! Instead, each member of Cornerstone is urged to be accountable to all the rest, fostering a sense of belonging, of being family, and of unity in the Spirit.
"Love never fails." 1 Corinthians 13:8
