The Cornerstone, Christ Jesus

built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord.

Ephesians 2:20-21

Everything is to be aligned on the Cornerstone.

Concerning the Body of Christ, all need to be aligned with Christ Jesus.

Virtual Study 002

Christ Jesus, The Cornerstone

April 21, 2020


Welcome to Virtual Study With Us. This is session two of a series on some of the basics of Christian living. We live in an age in which I believe we are seeing the Kingdom of God overtaking the church age. The Body of Christ needs to come out of Laodicea and into living the life of love as taught in the Book of Ephesians.


Each session begins with our host, Garret, gathering us together. The idea here is that we get to better know one another so that we may become more involved in one another’s lives. In this way we can more effectively love one another.


Following the time of fellowship is a short presentation to introduce the points of the topic for discussion. After the introduction, the floor is open for discussion including statements, questions, testimonials, etc. The hope is for a Spirit led conversation that is a blessing for all those present, including experiencing an encounter with God and manifestation of the five-fold ministry.
