Reviewing the past blessings of God for a church is always spiritually profitable. The Lord has blessed us in many ways. The work of God has been blessed with the strengthening of the saints, the salvation of sinners, the establishment of new ministries, and the material needs of the work here have been met.
Cornerstone has continued to grow with souls being added to the church regularly in the preceding months. We thank God for His blessings.
The Psalmist cried, “O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.” (Psalm 43:3) The desire to spread the good news of the Gospel is a Scriptural one. It should be central to the ministry of every church.
We look forward to God doing a great work for His glory in our midst, “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.” (Zechariah 4:6)
