Are you new, a visitor, or interested in attending Cornerstone Baptist Church? You'll find that Cornerstone Baptist Church is the ideal place for you and your family!
You'll find that Cornerstone Baptist:
- Has a heart for people
- Is a growing church located in the growing community of Las Cruces, New Mexico
- Is committed to the work of the Lord and serving the community.
- There are many opportunities to be involved, minister to the needy, serve the Lord and share the Gospel with others.
Adult Bible classes and Sunday School classes meet from 10:00 a.m. to 10:50 a.m., right before the main preaching service. Children's classes are divided into age approiate groups and are taught by experienced teachers the Word of God as it applies to their young lives. This is a great opportunity for you and your family to meet other fellow believers and also learn great Bible truths.
As you walk in, a friendly usher will greet you and be available for you to help you find a seat and answer any questions you may have.
We believe in having a church service with good, uplifting hymns and spiritual songs that will stir and inspire you, prayer, and best of all, practical preaching of the Word of God from Pastor Doug Cowan.
We also provide a first-class nursery and child-care for your newborn or baby, where they will be kept safe and well supervised. Our nursery staff is well trained and experienced; we are good at what we do.
What Should I Wear?
There is no strict dress code to attend our public services, but in case you're wondering, a majority of our church members wear their "Sunday best" - the men in a dress shirt and dress slacks, typically with a tie, and the women in modest dress.
We consider the preaching of the Word of God to be the best and the most important time of the service. I Corinthians 1:21 reads, "...it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." We believe that the best help you can get in any struggle of life is from the Bible and that preaching is that help.
At the end of the preaching, Pastor Cowan will ask everyone to stand and will give an invitation. This is a time for many to respond and make a life-changing decision by walking down the aisle and praying at the altar. A decision may be to trust Jesus Christ as your personnel Saviour or to become a better Christian. Whatever your decision may be, the altar is open to you to join those that will make decisions.
If you would like someone to pray for you or would like to make your decision public, men from our pastoral staff will be by the altar to pray with you and help you.
After the invitation is given, we have a baptism time at the end of every Sunday service. Those who have trusted Jesus Christ are baptized by immersion, making it as easy as possible to be baptized immediately after you get saved. However, we do not believe you can be saved by baptism.
If you would like to be baptized, make your way to the altar, and men from our pastoral staff will be available to assist you.
Wednesday Evening Bible Study - 7:00 p.m.
The Wednesday evening Bible study takes place every week at 7:00 p.m. This is a time during the week when the church family gathers to listen and be taught practical, relevant truths from the Bible taught by Pastor Cowan. You will learn relevant truths from God's Word that will help you in all areas of your life.
