Sunday Sermons

At Cornerstone, the sermons are primarily expository in nature. We spend most of our time stepping through a section or book of the Bible verse by verse, section by section, and occasionally we will preach on a theme. The elders strive to make each sermon a Christ centered, church building, Gospel proclaiming, truth driven, biblically grounded, proclamation for the purpose of God glorifying transformation.

To interpret and apply his text in accordance with its real meaning, is one of the preacher’s most sacred duties.John Broadus, On the Preparation and Delivery of Sermons

Gospel of Matthew – Interpreting the Signs Around Us

We go again to the Gospel of Matthew for our message, entitled “Interpreting the Signs Around Us.” We enter into the great Chapter 16, perhaps the key chapter of the whole gospel.

John’s life tracks very closely to the life of Jesus, and the story’s position in the gospel marks a…
