Home Discipleship

 

Cornerstone’s mission is "Building a Family in Christ to Reach Families for Christ." A vital part of that mission is empowering and encouraging every home to fulfill its God given role in making disciples who can make disciples by winning, building and equipping followers of Christ. We desire that every family strive toward creating a God-honoring home. We believe that the home is the most influential place in the life of a child and any other family relationship. Home Pointe ministries is committed to empowering and building families. Check out our Home Pointe Resource Center in the foyer of the church building!

 

Home Discipleship at Cornerstone means that homes should...

 

Show Christ

 Every marriage is intended to be a masterpiece reflecting the marriage between God and His people. So we challenge believers to pursue a God-honoring marriage by giving themselves to a husband or wife through mutual submission and faithful devotion. (Gen. 1:27, 15; Jer. 3; Eph. 5:22-33; Rev. 21:9)

 

“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh” This is a profound mystery – but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." (Eph. 5:31-33).

 

Raise Believers        

Those blessed with the gift of children and grandchildren are called to disciple the next generation as life’s greatest priority. So we challenge believers to become intentional about capturing and creating experiences that deepen the roots of faith by engaging as family in word, worship, fellowship and prayer. (Ex. 20; Deut. 6; Ps. 78:1-8; Eph. 6:1-4)

 

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the door posts of your house and on your gates. (Deut. 6:4-9 ESV)

 

 Be Jesus

A strong Christian family is where The Word becomes Flesh and Blood as we conform our lives to the image and example of the Lord Jesus Christ. So we challenge believers to walk the talk, living their faith at home in ways that will attract the next generation and the next-door-neighbor to Christ. (Jn. 1:14, Phil. 2, I Tim. 3, I Jn. 3:16)

 

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. (1 Jn. 3:16)
