Jesus said to his disciple Peter in Matthew 16:18b, “…I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” (NIV®) Here Christ promises to push back Satan through the ministry and mission of his bride, the church. Today, we’re happy to announce Christ is continuing to build his church. As of Wednesday, July 19th 2017, Cornerstone Congregational Church has transitioned from being a ministry of Immanuel Church in Chelmsford to becoming our own legally autonomous church.
With this wonderful news, we would like to introduce you to our founding Board of Elders:
We are also pleased to introduce to you our first Treasurer, Shirley Burchfield. You can view the official filing here.
As a new church, we can now have church-membership. Please take the time to read this article, 6 Reasons Why Membership Matters. Then prayerfully read through our Cornerstone church covenant. When you’re ready, please talk with any member of the Board of Elders. We are so looking forward to officially welcoming in our first round of Cornerstone members.
In Christ, the Cornerstone Board of Elders
