Could you tell us about Cornerstone Anointed Church of Christ?
Cornerstone Anointed Church of Christ was founded 22 years ago during Easter. So, we celebrated the church’s 22nd anniversary on Easter day, April 16. We have come a long way. The vision of the church is centered on Jesus Christ. So, it is completely a Christ centric church. Among other things, we preach the messages of hope, faith, holiness and most importantly, of love that is expressed, especially during the period of Easter in order to save us from sin and grant us new and eternal life.
What were the highlights of the 22nd anniversary celebration?
We preached the word of God to give people hope that is beyond this earth, so that they would live for eternal reasons. The word takes pre-eminence in people’s lives. There were also drama sketches from children and adults as well as music from the choir to get us into the Easter mood and to celebrate, as God wants us to.
