Bringing People to Jesus…

The Bible teaches that through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, every person has the opportunity to find “life and have it abundantly” (Jn.10:10). Bringing people to Jesus does not happen by imposing the message of Christ upon others. It happens by offering the gospel respectfully, through loving service, through Spirit-filled witness and caring relationships. We are thirsty people who have discovered the well spring of life. Our task is to lead and bring others to the Water of Life.

Bring people to Jesus. . .We are called to extend the love of Christ and the message of the gospel to everyone—to our family, friends, and neighbors and to people all around the world. Jesus calls us to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” and teaching others to obey His commands (Mt.28:19-20). Bringing people to Jesus includes praying for and reaching “every nation, tribe, people and language” (Rev.7:9).

Bring people to Jesus. . .Mark 2 speaks of four men who wanted to help their friend who was paralyzed. They didn’t have the power to heal him. But they did have the ability to do something very simple—they could carry their friend to the one Person who could really help. Bringing people to Jesus means bringing them to the only Person who can truly save and heal.

Bring people to Jesus. . .Bringing people to the Jesus as revealed in Scripture. He is the Son of God and God the Son. He is the Word Incarnate and the Lamb of God slain for the forgiveness of sins. He was crucified so that we could be reconciled to God, and on the third day He rose from the dead. He is the Head of the church and His Kingdom will have no end.Cornerstone Christian Fellowship’s mission is to bring people to Jesus by proclaiming the gospel in word and deed. As followers of Christ, we have a high calling: To be His witnesses locally and globally (Acts 1:8).Jesus said, “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in , I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Then the righteous will answer him, Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you? ” The King will reply, I tell you the truth whatever you did for the one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did to me” (Mt.25:35-40).Christ has called us to love our neighbor as ourselves and to serve others in practical ways. Each of us has a network of relationships where we are to shine the light of the gospel. As a community of believers, our vision is to bring people to Jesus through our corporate worship and prayer services and through the following outreach ministries:
