Our Location

Cornerstone Baptist Church is 20 years old and is located in the Cherry Log section of Gilmer County.  We are at 1044 Cherry Log Street just one half mile off of 515.  We have a beautiful Sanctuary and Educational Building built of log construction.  As such, we are "The Log Church in Cherry Log."

Our Vision

We are a small church with big visions.  Our desire is to be an authentic Church that is true to our Lord and His word.  Our ministries to each other are vital for Christian growth.  Our mission in the Community is to serve the spiritual and pratical needs of the people.

COMMUNION NEXT SUNDAY

We have communion on the first Sunday of each month.  It is always a holy experience for us.  To prepare our hearts let us think on these things by Pastor Ryan Huguley:

 
1. Acknowledge your need

We have a tendency to suppress our sin - we mask it, hide it, ignore it and rationalize it. In suppressing the reality of our sin we unknowingly suppress the reality of our need for a Savior.  Instead of ignoring our sin, we need to lean into it and allow it to drive us to our need for Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.

 
2. Examine your heart

Just one verse later in I Corinthians 11:28 Paul again instructs us writing, "Let a person examine himself, then and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup." What are the attitudes, actions, and behaviors not in full submission to Jesus? Whom, or what has captured your affection more than Jesus? Do the hard work of examining your heart in hope of unearthing the indwelling sin that inevitably exists.

 
3. Repent of your sin

To examine your heart and identify your sin is only half the battle. Realizing your sin is not enough, you must repent of it. Repentance is the gift of grace that causes a change of heart, mind, and behavior - it's turning your back on sin and turning your face to God, choosing to go God's way.

 
4. Take it by faith

As we take the bread and the cup it reminds us of the body and blood of Christ that has provided us with freedom from the penalty and the power of our sin and reconciled us to God. We take these elements by faith - not faith in the elements, but in the One to which the elements point.

Christ died once for sin, that He might bring us to God and restore to us the lives for which we were created (1 Peter 3:18). Communion is our celebration of Christ's sacrifice to save sinners. The severity of the sacrifice demands we celebrate seriously. Each time we're provided the opportunity let's acknowledge our need, examine our hearts, repent of our sin, and take this gift by faith.
