Cornerstone began with a small group of 8 people meeting in a small room.  Over the past 25 years, hundreds of people have made it their church home and thousands faithfully listen on the radio or on the internet.  God is bringing a new generation to the church without walls.   Are you looking for a small church with a big impact?

The Hampton Inn

In 2012 we moved to the conference center at the Show Low Hampton Inn.  We rented office and storage nearby and purchased a gently used 1998 Suburban to haul our gear every Sunday.  We call it "church in a box".
