Cornerstone Bible Church of Fort Ann, NY was founded in 1978 in order to help people find "new life" through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Our desire for those in our local area to know God and His deep love for us continues to be the "cornerstone" of the church today.
While there is great benefit from regularly gathering together in tangible ways, the Church Jesus is building is so much more than a building to worship in, an event to attend, a structured program, or a group to join. It is the community of followers of Yeshua (Jesus Christ), whose lives and relationships are an expression of the reality of the very nature and character of Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It's the fruit of embracing a reality of living in loving relationship together with God and others wherever life takes us and with whomever's paths we cross as led by the Holy Spirit. Genuine community doesn't just happen, and can take a lot of time and energy. Yet we want to help people connect with Jesus and others and experience the joy of relationships built on endearing engagement and the truth of God's Word.
We believe that life is about knowing and loving God and others in order to reveal His reality in the world for His glory (John 13:34-35, 17:3; Matthew 22:36-40). This is what the Good News of Jesus' birth, life, death, and resurrection was about and unto - revealing the love of His Father and saving us from living apart from God and chasing after anything other than what God has given us so that our relationship with God the Father may be restored and full. Through engaging in life together as a faith family, having regular gatherings that offer teaching, preaching, prayer, fellowship, discussion, and encouragement (centered on Biblical truth), being an active part of our community with even a global impact, and simply having endearing conversations with people we cross paths with, we hope to honor God and others as a local group of Jesus followers. We invite you to join us in our journey of learning to live life as loved followers of Jesus Christ!
