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

Gospel of Matthew – The Temptation of Jesus

This Sunday our sermon is entitled “The Temptation of Jesus” and is drawn from Matthew 4:1-12. Here we learn some important facts about our Lord’s ministry and how important such a story really is in the larger plan of the gospel. We also learn some very important practical lessons for daily living that will almost certainly offend our worldly side a little,…

Gospel of Matthew – The Baptism of Jesus

Our sermon is entitled, “The Baptism of Jesus.” We come to the first of our Lord’s true active ministry actions in this passage. Up to now, we have been speaking all about the Lord as Matthew has been introducing Him, showing us that He is the Messiah from the testimony of prophets and scripture. But now, the Lord speak for Himself. In…

Gospel of Matthew – The Refugee: Wanted and Despised

Our sermon is taken from the Gospel of Matthew 2:13-23. This message will show us the great divide between the world and Christ. With wickedness rampant in tyrannical leaders like Herod, the world is never a safe place for Jesus or His followers. From the Lord’s earliest days, He is hunted. Matthew shows us yet again that this is the expected circumstance…

Gospel of Matthew – The Visit of the Magi

Our message will cover Matthew 2:1-12. Here we learn some truths that may challenge what you think you know about the Magi. Our task is to take our knowledge from the Bible, not from tradition and holiday songs, so we get to do just that. We’ll discover who King Herod is, what kind of people surround him, and why they responded the…

Gospel of Matthew – Fully God and Fully Man

Today we look at Matthew 1:18-25, a storehouse of core doctrine and an encouraging passage about the birth of Jesus. Here we will encounter the unique purpose of the virgin birth, the power of our Lord’s name, and the mystery of the union of Christ’s two natures. It may seem unusual to many of us, speaking of the incarnation in the middle…

Gospel of Matthew – Son of David, Son of Abraham

Our message will cover Matthew 1:1-17, a beautiful bit of scripture, because of the wisdom of Matthew to begin with a distinctly royal lineage. Even from a list, we find great hope that heaven is not barred to us Gentiles and sinners, for our Lord is not ashamed to find in His descendants tainted blood and sinful people. When the gospel can…

Gospel of Matthew – Introduction

Technical Note: The first 10 minutes of the message were not recorded, however, the bulk of the message is present. Please enjoy! Here is our introductory message on the Gospel of Matthew that sets up the context through which we will look at this gospel. We begin the series with the last verses of the gospel, Matthew 28:16-20. We will make it…

Hospitality As An Expression of Love

Our sermon is entitled “Hospitality As An Expression of Love” and we will be launching from 1 John 3:15-18. I hope to show how it is a vital part of the Christian life, necessary for a vibrant community, and a command from God. I do not wish to lay burdens on people, which is what these kinds of sermons can sometimes be…

Assurance of Salvation: Overcoming Doubts

This Lord’s Day, we will deal with the topic of assurance of salvation. We will answer these five common doubts that Christians experience. Launching from 1 Corinthians 2:12, we will cover several other passages as well. This is designed for believers who have doubts, and I pray that it will help you or help your children. Here are the five doubts we…
