Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family
Here's the deal, Cornerstone Alliance Church cares about one thing more than anything else - Jesus Christ. Cornerstone is a family of individuals that have found Jesus to be the cornerstone on which to build a solid foundation for our lives. And we simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same stability.
In biblical times, a cornerstone was used as the foundation and standard upon which a building was constructed. Once in place, the rest of the building would conform to the angles and size of the cornerstone. In addition, if removed, the entire structure could collapse.
For those living in societies where people often built their own homes, using construction terminology to explain the priority of Jesus the Messiah as the Cornerstone of the household of God provided a clear connecting point that would have been well understood by the original audience. Today, we read these words and clearly see the Bible's indication that Jesus serves as the foundation of the Church as well as for each Christian's individual life.
Cornerstone Alliance Church was started in 1949 as St. Vital Gospel Tabernacle. Over the years, the meeting placed moved to a few different places including Southdale and then in 2001 to the Windsor Park neighbourhood of Winnipeg. From the beginning as a small group meeting in a living room, we have always been connected with the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada. Through all the transition, Jesus has been our Cornerstone and this year we are celebrating our 70th anniversary as a church.
What's the bottom line? More than ever, Cornerstone Alliance Church is committed to fostering a family built around Jesus, our Cornerstone. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion and belonging remain at the center of who we are as followers of Christ.
What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at Cornerstone Alliance Church. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you'll always be accepted as part of the Cornerstone family.
