Our Message

Everything starts with Jesus

We believe the most important thing in life is not a thing, but a person. Let us help you connect with Jesus and build your life on the Chief Cornerstone. When the storms of life come, you will have a solid foundation built on Him that will not be shaken.

Our Model

Many Members, One Body, United Community

We meet every Sunday morning for a time of authentic worship and foundational, practical, applicable, Bible teaching. Your children (Babies through 5th Grade) will love their time in the KidZone, a place to have fun and learn how to build strong foundations on Jesus.

Throughout the week, we offer Connect Groups close to home for you to build relationships and grow spiritually. Cornerstone Students (6th through 12th Grade) also meet for weekly activities.


Our Mission

Finding the One

We are looking for those in need of Jesus as their Savior, as well as those looking to reconnect with God. You are not here by accident, but placed by God right where you are for His purposes. We aim to engage the whole family, equipping each person to fulfill those purposes - to love God, love others, and go out and make disciples.

Our Roots

One True God

God has been telling our story from the beginning - A story of sin and separation, sacrifice and salvation, life and hope. A rescue plan that began long ago and continues to this day. A God who came to seek and to save because of His great love for us. We get to play a part in this story.


Our Facilities

Close to Home

We meet every Sunday at 10 AM on the campus of Knowles Elementary School, just off Lakeline Blvd on the border of Cedar Park and Leander.
