Sunday Sermons

At Cornerstone, the sermons are primarily expository in nature. We spend most of our time stepping through a section or book of the Bible verse by verse, section by section, and occasionally we will preach on a theme. The elders strive to make each sermon a Christ centered, church building, Gospel proclaiming, truth driven, biblically grounded, proclamation for the purpose of God glorifying transformation.

To interpret and apply his text in accordance with its real meaning, is one of the preacher’s most sacred duties.John Broadus, On the Preparation and Delivery of Sermons

I Have Given You an Example

John 13:1-20 – We look again at the example Jesus has given us by washing the disciples’ feet. Having learned about the greatest meaning of this living parable last week, now we look at how we ought to go and be doers of the Word. John 13:1-20 13:1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come…

If I Do Not Wash You, You Have No Share with Me

John 13:1-11 – The disciples were shocked that Jesus would stoop so low to wash their feet, but Jesus said it was necessary. Look with us as we uncover the depth of this living parable and learn what it means to trust the sin bearer who took our shame. (NOTE: Audio quality is very bad due to technical challenges, but the sermon…

God’s Glory in Christ’s Death on the Cross

John 12:27-50 – Here we come to the end of Jesus’ earthly ministry, prior to his crucifixion. In his final words to the world he came to save, he tells us the purpose for which he came. That purpose is for God’s name to be glorified. John 12:27-28 27 “Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from…

The Coming Glory

John 12:20-26 – Here in John 12, against the backdrop of this historical drama which has played out over time, the anticipation of the Messiah ought to be palpable. There ought to be a buzz in the air. Jesus Christ, the seed of the woman foretold from the beginning of history is here. He has come to God’s people. He is the…

Biblical Vision and Purpose for Christ’s Church

Acts 6:1-7 – Where does a Christian church find it’s vision and purpose?  Does it come from the visions and dreams of their pastors?  Does it come from the popular authors of the day?  Do we receive it from marketing consultants?  Community surveys?  Church tradition?  Does that purpose change with the times?  And secondly, how is a church to fulfill that vision…

Restoring the Influence of Christendom by Restoring Families

2 Corinthians 6:14-15; Matthew 28:18-20; Genesis 1:28 – In this topical sermon we look at the family’s role in the grand, culture-changing themes of making disciples and taking dominion. In the Bible, the first institution established by God was the family, and to that small group of people God gave a critical mission. If we are to be faithful family men and…

Predestination in John’s Gospel

John 10:22-30 – One of the most compelling and clear areas in scripture where the doctrine of predestination is taught is the Gospel of John. Jesus demonstrates that belief in Him is tied to belonging to Hm from eternity past. In this sermon, we first look at the context which calls our attention to national Judaism, the antithesis of the gospel. Against…

The Authentic Shepherd

John 10:1-21 – In contrast to the Pharisees who have not fulfilled their role as shepherds for the Jews, Jesus declares himself to be the true shepherd who calls his sheep, saves them to abundant life, and seals all of this with his blood. As one of his sheep, you can follow the Authentic Shepherd through his voice in the Bible, the…

I Was Blind But Now I See, Part II

John 9:13-41 – We revisit the blind man who was healed by Jesus and consider the response to Christ’s work. In this second of two parts, we discover that the truth about Jesus presses men to react and forces a confrontation with truth. At such a turning point, there is only belief and unbelief. We look at the Pharisees and their domineering…

I Was Blind But Now I See, Part I

John 9:1-12 – The story of the blind man who was healed is a powerful living parable that teaches us about the work of Christ is in response to our helpless condition. We look at this work in detail in part one of two sermons that will consider the sign Jesus worked, the response it provoked, and the greater implications for us…
