As a local body of Jesus Christ, we believe that every member of CCK has a vital role to play in the ministry of the church. We believe this because scripture says “to each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good” (1 Cor. 12:7). As Christ is building his church, he empowers every disciple, by His Holy Spirit, with spiritual gifts. These gifts are diverse! Every gift is indispensable, no one person has all of them and this is by God’s design.
From teaching, helping, prophecy, serving, healing, giving, mercy, encouraging, administration, evangelism, words of wisdom and knowledge, leadership, ect.,“God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose” (1 Cor. 12:18).
Our ministry teams offer a context for you to use the gifts God has entrusted to you. Our prayer is that as each person uses their gifts to serve, God would be glorified, the church would be edified, the gospel would be proclaimed, and we would experience the joy of serving others.
Our heart for every member is that they would be connected relationally (Care Groups, FX, VFC) and serving functionally (Ministry Teams). The links on the left can help you find out what ministries Cornerstone Church of Knoxville offers, or how to get plugged into Cornerstone.
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies – in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 4:10-11)
