Our Vision

Our vision is to be an obedient, visible expression of Jesus Christ in the earth and to be a bridge for all races and nations to know Christ and enter into the Kingdom of God.

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to equip the body of Christ to fulfill God’s original intent for their lives; to receive the broken and bound so they can be saved, healed, and delivered; to send out trained teams of believers locally and internationally to bring Kingdom order; and to intercede daily with the Father’s heat for our city, nation, and world.

 

Our History

 
Cornerstone Christian Center was founded in January of 1992, under the leadership of Pastors James and Frances Autry.

Cornerstone held its first services at the Young Men’s Business Club in Westwego. After several months at this location we were blessed to be able to rent the gymnasium at Concordia Lutheran School in Marrero. We remained at this location for approximately ten years. During this time, faithful men and women moved equipment in and moved equipment out. Chairs were set up and chairs were taken down. Nursery items were brought in and nursery items were taken out. While this was difficult, we truly learned what team work and the servant heart of Christ were all about.

While we desired to have a building to call our own, we recognized that God was at work building a spiritual house. We also learned that church is truly more than a building.

In His time, God micraculously provided land for us to build on. In July of 1996, we found the property for our current facility. While property in this area is at a premium, we paid only $47,000 for almost five acres! We know the Lord gave us this property and it is truly dedicated to Him.

After paying off the land, the process of building plans, permitting and construction began. There were many hurdles to get over, many hours of work by all of us, but finally the new facility was completed.

In April 2001, Cornerstone moved into its present location. We continue to possess and occupy the land that God has given us. We also look forward to future expansion with other buildings and parking.

We give all the praise to the Lord for His wonderful provision and continued blessing.
