Cornerstone North Raleigh Christian Church (CNRC) is a branch church of Cornerstone Christian Community Church of Oxford, NC and is part of the overall vision of Bishop J. Phillip Betts to reach the world for Jesus Christ.

CNRC began in 2011 as an evangelistic outreach ministry. Services were held on Tuesday nights at the Comfort Suites Hotel in North Raleigh. Services were intentionally designed to be nontraditional; consisting of a time of intercessory prayer, praise and worship, bible teaching, and small group discussions. The ministry also conducted evangelistic outreach activities and provided counseling to those in need of spiritual, emotional and physical healing.

In January of 2014, CNRC began holding services on Sunday mornings. Services are now held on Sundays at 10:00 am and Tuesday nights at 7:00 pm at 3209 Gresham Lake Road, Suite 122, Raleigh, NC 27615.

Four Things You Need to Know

1. God Loves You!

The Bible says in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (NIV) God loves you more than you can ever imagine.

2. The Bad News

All of us have done, said or even thought things that are wrong.  These bad things are called sin.  Our sins have separated us from God.

The Bible says in Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” God is perfect and holy, and the penalty or wages of our sin is separation from God forever. The Bible says in Romans 6:23 “The wages of sin is death.”

If you have a job you hopefully also receive a wage or payment for your work. The same goes with our sin.  The Bible says that the penalty or wage for our sin is death or separation from God.

The Good News happened over 2,000 years ago and can change your life today.

3. The Good News

God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.

Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a perfect, sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins.  In Romans 5:8 the Bible says “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (NIV)

Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in Heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life — of living forever with Him in heaven if we trust Him as our Lord and Savior.  The Bible says in Romans 6:23 “…the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”  Eternal life in heaven is a free gift.  Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me.”

God reaches out in love to you now and wants you to be His child. “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name.” You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.

4. Trust the Lord Jesus Christ

If you want to trust the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, you can accept Him as your Savior and Lord by praying the following prayer:

"Dear God, I come to You as a sinner. I believe what Your word says in Romans chapter 10 and verse 9 that if I confess with my mouth, that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that on the third day You raised Him from the dead, I will be saved. I do confess Jesus as Savior and Lord. I do believe that He died on the cross for my sins and for the sins of the world. I believe that on the third day, You raised Him from the grave. Now He sits on your right hand interceding for me and for all who will confess Him and believe on Him. I repent of my sins and receive Jesus as my Saviour and Lord. I receive the free gift of salvation by faith. Thank You God for saving me. In Jesus name, Amen.

The Bible says in Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you prayed just prayed the prayer above and you were truly sincere about what you just said, then you are now saved. Nothing spectacular may have happened to you as you prayed and you may not feel any different from the way you felt two minutes before you prayed. But make no mistake, you are saved. Don't let anyone or (even you) convince you otherwise. Now you have the opportunity to live a victorious life here on earth; and, when you leave this life, heaven will be your home.
