MINISTRIES


STRIVING TO HELP YOU CONNECT TO JESUS

Ministry is using whatever God has given you to serve Him and the needs of others.  


“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10 NIV)


This verse talks about the different kinds of service to God and how they together form the Body of Christ and each one is a necessary part of it. We believe that God has given every Christian:

S

- Spiritual gifts that are given for the express purpose of serving others.

H

- Heart motivations that influence the choices we make and the feelings we have.

A

- Abilities that empower our service and affirm our choice of ministry areas.

P

- Personalities that lend themselves to diverse opportunities.

E

- Experiences, whether spiritual, educational, or those born of pain, that compel us toward ministry.

"Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-12)


Apostle Paul says on this verse that God wants to use me and you to help others toward maturity. Because every Christian need to have a ministry to serve God.

MINISTRIES

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY


Many children come to CCBC each week.  It is our desire to give them a safe, comfortable environment that will communicate God’s love for them.  The Children’s Ministry of CCBC offers Sunday School classes to children of ages 3-12 so that they can meaningfully spend their time while their parents attend worship service.  Sunday School materials which include visual aids such as posters, memory verse charts and handwork books are provided to make children appreciate each Bible lesson.  Infants and toddlers in the Nursery Section are either put to sleep or allowed to play in the playpen by patient volunteer workers.


MUSIC MINISTRY


Mission statement: To worship, honor, and glorify the body of Christ through all aspects of life (Colossians 3:16-17). As a ministry we will serve as a vessel to bring unification within the congregation to praise the LORD through song (Isaiah 12:5). 


Ministry Purpose: “The music ministry is to act as a vehicle to usher in the presence of God. It is to set and establish an atmosphere that is conducive to worship, enabling (a) the presence of God to move freely among the congregation and (b) each person in the congregation to experience Christ on a personal level. The music ministry should serve as an enhancement to the worship service (Not distraction), preparing the people for the delivery of the Word of God. It is not an end in itself, but neither is it a means of filling gaps in the worship experience. The music ministry should not be used as a piece of scenic background, but rather as an active, participatory, and integral part of the worship service.” – Music Ministry of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church 


Goals: Support the principle teachings, core values, and the mission and vision of Cornerstone Christian Baptist Church. (Titus 3:1-2) 

Combine and utilize the skills, efforts, gifts, and talents of each ministry worker within the ministry to fulfill the same purpose. (1 Cor. 12:20, 27)

Lead an example to believers and non-believers alike in what we say, how we live, our love, our faith, and our purity. (1 Timothy 4:12)


Objectives:


Maintain a friendly and welcoming environment within the ministry, respecting and loving everyone. (1 Peter 3:17a) (1 John 4:7)

Regularly attend Cornerstone Christian Baptist Church’s main worship service.

Regularly attend scheduled music ministry practices.

This is a great place to meet other teens and discover their purpose. This ministry is open for ages 12 to 18.  We focus on reaching out to teens in a relevant way through high-energy worship, current messages and an atmosphere that connects with teens.  The goal of this ministry is to see our youth surrender, grow and mature in their walk with Christ, and they in turn point others to Christ also!

The goal of this ministry is to see young adults surrender, grow and mature in their walk with Christ, and they in turn point others to Christ also!


MEN'S MINISTRY


The Men's Ministry of Cornerstone Christian Baptist Church desires to promote the transformation of the men of the church into the image of the ultimate man, Jesus Christ, by providing opportunities for relationship, education, and service in areas that facilitate spiritual growth in the primary male roles of husband, father, son, and laborer so that everyone they encounter will desire to connect to Jesus.


LADIES MINISTRY


Ladies Ministry’s primary goal is to encourage single and married ladies, working and non-working mothers to let them feel their importance as mothers and ladies in the church.  Sometimes, we all get bored with our routine work and household chores and once in a while we need to refresh with other Christian ladies.


PRAYER AND INTERCESSION MINISTRY


This prayer ministry supports through prayer and intercession the needs of the congregation, the pastoral staff, church ministries, the city, county, state, nation, and world.  Prayer requests come from several sources:  prayer and communication cards, e-mails, personal encounters, individual needs, telephone, etc.  These team members fervently pray over all requests received every week.


GROWTH GROUP BIBLE STUDY MINISTRY


One of the exciting ministry of Cornerstone Christian Baptist Church is having Growth Group Bible Study that meets weekly.  In this small group meeting, we then discuss deeper and some controversial topics regarding the Bible and how we will grow more spiritually.  It is also in this occasion that we have an opportunity to know more about each other.



VISITATION MINISTRY


Visitation is one of our major ministries that we are doing.  We are doing our best to pay visit to our visitors, absentees, regular attendees and members of our church.  We would like them to feel welcome in our church and show them that we care for them.


CHILDREN'S PRAISE TEAM MINISTRY


CCBC is blessed with many children.  We want them to have a privilege to serve the Lord through singing.  This could be an exciting music ministry for the CCBC.  The children will sing on worship service, special concerts and participate in community events.  We will emphasize excellence in music but present Jesus Christ as the center of our focus.  We will teach children that praising the Lord is fun and an exciting way of life.

USHERING MINISTRY


The Usher Ministry provides an excellent opportunity to participate in our weekly worship celebration and other special events at the church.  This ministry will allow you to meet and greet other church members and attendees.  We strive to make them feel comfortable and welcome to our services.  As an usher you will get to know more about the activities and the people involved in the Sunday worship services.  The door usher makes sure an adequate supply of bulletins, handouts and pencils are available for his station.  He greets attendees, answers questions about where various classes and activities are taking place, passes out bulletin, and helps people get seated.  He assists people that need help and assures aisles are clear and safe.  He also helps with the offering and counting the attendance.


PULPIT HELPS MINISTRY


Because our goal on Sunday is to communicate the truths of God’s word in a relevant and understandable way. We provide DRAMA  for Evangelism, education, understanding of God’s word and challenges on values and religion.  Many people do not realize how practical the bible is to their lives. Others think that “Theology and Doctrine” are too difficult for them to understand. Through the DRAMA we can overcome these barriers. Often the drama will effectively communicate more than the sermon can. The mix of visual, dialogue, real people dealing with real issues gets people’s attention and communicates truth in a unique way. Drama is especially important because it can overcome the language barriers, educational limitations, and it is generally a boredom buster. For our performers, we provide a fulfilling creative outlet, which uses and develops our God-given gifts and talents in a way that pleases and honours God.


PICTURES AND VIDEO PRODUCTION


This ministry is documenting all of our activities thru pictures and video, to be used in our annual praise reports, face book and websites announcements and promotions. This ministry also provides the essential means of communication between our church, church members, the community and potentially new church members.



PROMOTION AND INFORMATION MINISTRY


This ministry is providing announcement and information of our church activities and upcoming events through videos, dramas, flyers and all kinds of information dissimilation that they can to remind and invites church members and visitors to attend and or avail ministry activities and opportunities.


FOOD PREPARATION MINISTRY


We love to eat and have fellowship with one another.  So, whenever, there is an special Sunday events in our church (Friends, Family, Students, Mothers, Fathers, Veterans Day) or any occasions like Christmas, Church Anniversary, we always have a celebration party.  But then it is very hard to organize what foods we are going to prepare, etc.  We’re so glad that we have several ladies from our church who were more than willing to help in preparing foods.                


WEBSITE MINISTRY


As the Internet becomes more prevalent in our society, it has become commonplace to turn to the Internet for shopping, finding directions, researching products, and even to find a church or seek answers to spiritual questions. When a new person moves into town one of the first things they do to find out where a business or even a church is, is to look on the web. Our church front is now not only a brick and mortar one but we have another church front that is waiting for them on the web. The difference is that a website is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week and can draw seekers and future members. The Website Ministry is the place for:  a) answering questions about membership, baby dedication, weddings, church schedules and Bible Studies.


FACEBOOK INFORMATION MINISTRY


This Facebook Information Ministry is the place for:  a) Announcement for our upcoming activities, church schedules and Bible Studies; b)  communication among members  through announcements from ministry heads. c) Upload pictures and videos of previous activities.

Our Church Banners and Signs ministry provides the essential means of communication between our church, church members, the community and potentially new church members. This ministry provides these opportunities by putting our Church Banner and Signs at least 1 hour every Sunday and taking it out after the service.


FACILITY MAINTENANCE MINISTRY


We would like to make our church very comfortable for everybody.  Our church represents who we are.  In this manner, the way we make our church presentable, the more people enjoy to worship with us.  We believe that God is the God of order and we want everything to be in proper places.


EVENTS AND SPECIAL SUNDAYS MINISTRY

They will also create a souvenir for our special Sundays like Friends, Family, Students, Mothers, Fathers, Veterans Day, etc. If you love to plan and decorates and know how to change an ordinary rooms to a banquet hall.
