How We Do It
Our Discipleship Process shows the usual steps people take at Cornerstone to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Most people come first to one of our Sunday morning services where we do our best to create an environment where we all can encounter God. The next step after this is to join a Life Group to further involve people in community. After this is usually when people serve in a ministry to demonstrate their love to those in our church and our La Crosse community. People in our community eventually find themselves investing in their friends, neighbors, families, and coworkers to bring them to experience God’s love and grow His Kingdom. Wherever the starting point, all of this is built upon a foundation of spiritual practices such as Bible reading and prayer.
Our Core Values
Authenticity: We believe that Christ followers should manifest authenticity and yearn for continuous growth.
Prayer: We believe that communication is essential for a real and personal relationship with God.
Reaching People: We believe that all people matter to God and therefore ought to matter to the church.
Life Groups: We believe that life change happens best in small groups (Life Groups). This includes community, growth, loving support, and accountability.
God-given Spiritual Gifts: We believe that a church should operate as a unified community of servants with men and women learning and stewarding their spiritual gifts.
Worship: We believe worship should be the expression of a lifestyle of personal worship.
Relevant Biblical Teaching: We believe that the church should be culturally relevant while remaining doctrinally pure.
Unity of the Body of Christ: We desire to be an active part of what God is doing throughout the Greater La Crosse area—to see the spiritual climate of the entire Greater La Crosse area be changed by the power of God.
Lifestyle of Compassion: We believe that Christ’s command to “love our neighbor” calls each of us to demonstrate the richness of Christ’s love to our local, national, and global communities by using our God-given resources to bring blessing and restoration to others in need.
