Thank you for taking time to explore the Face Book Page of Cornerstone Baptist Church of Mesquite our door to the world! We want you to know that we care about you and your family. Our church exists to honor Christ and to make Him known to others.
How did it ever get started?! Here is our story how a small group of people came together, many years ago, in a mission Church — and how it grew to become a Church body today known as Cornerstone Baptist Church of Mesquite. On November 12, 1939, our Church began in an old store building located on Oak Lane in Dallas. We started with sixteen charter members, and our Church was named Missionary Baptist Church. After much growth and sacrifice, we bought property, moved to Reed Lane, and became Reed Lane Baptist Church. In 1955, we relocated once again to Bruton Road and built anew. Here, we became named Bruton Road Baptist Church. Homer C. Adams, the founder of our Church, pastored for twenty years until his death in 1959. At that time, Brother Adams’ grandson, Gary L. Coleman, was called as Pastor. He served in that capacity for five years, and our Church continued to grow. In November, 1964, Brother Gary was called to Lavon Drive Baptist; so in February 1965, Brother Clyde Spain was called as our Pastor, serving for over twenty-three years. During that time, he trained a “Timothy” -- Brother Nelson Leeman – who is our present Pastor. Brother Leeman first served our Church as Youth and Christian Education Pastor, then as Co-Pastor, for nine years. Brother Leeman became our senior Pastor in June, 1988, and has been steadily leading our church’s ministry ever since. With the support of our Church leadership and congregation, Brother Leeman led us in our effort to relocate this ministry once again, this time to Creek Crossing in Mesquite. Upon the completion of the move, our congregation became known as the Cornerstone Baptist Church of Mesquite in July, 1997. It is a wonderful blessing to see the people of God unite to continue the work the Lord has called us to do! The spiritual goals of our Church have not and will not change, even though the name of our Church has changed through the years. Preaching God’s Word, sharing the Good News about the love of Jesus Christ, and teaching people how to allow God to change their lives and draw close to Him is our mission – both in our community and throughout the world through missions support.
Mission: The purpose of this church will be to exalt, adore, and honor the Triune God: to systematically nurture the saints through teaching, preaching, edification and admonition; to evangelize the lost in our community and unto the uttermost parts of the world; to baptize converts by immersion; to disciple them in the Scriptures; to serve one another in sacrificial love; to function as the local body of Christ using the abilities God has given us to serve one another; and, to defend the truth of God. 10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 I Peter 4:10,111

Worry or Pray...the Choice is Yours!
I believe the best way to make it through this Covid-19 pandemic is to pray! As we walk through life, there are periods of time where we experience the spiritual battle that is raging around us night and day, in a very physical way. But ultimately, the physical side of things in life won't matter, and aren't as important, or strong as the spiritual. And so prayer has to be our primary weapon that we use to join the fight in this thing called life.
David understood this reality very well, and the Psalms are filled with his prayers to our almighty God:
"Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord; hear my urgent cry. I will call to You whenever I'm in trouble, and You will answer me." Psalms 86:6-7 (NLT)
"O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, I cry to You for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety," Psalms 61:1-2 (NLT)
Now when it comes to prayer, if you are not sure where to start, there's good news. God intended it to be as easy as talking to a friend. He doesn't care how we say our prayers, He just wants us to talk with Him.
In fact, if God had His way, we would pray without ceasing throughout the day, and that is what He tells us to do in I Thess. 5:17. That doesn't necessarily mean praying long prayers one right after the other. It simply means that in every moment, with every breath, we have the opportunity to intentionally acknowledge God's presence, and invite Him into our thoughts so that we can be more open and in tune with what He's saying.
For example, we may quickly ask for safety while we are driving or thank God for His creativity when we see a beautiful flower. We may invite Him into our conversations with friends or ask Him to guide us in making a business decision. We may ask Him to guard our hearts and minds when we look in the mirror and don't like what we see. The reality is, the voice of the enemy could become the constant in our lives if we don't intentionally fill the space with God. The enemy loves to get us feeling isolated, but with prayer, we are never alone!
The night before His crucifixion, Jesus was overcome with grief. The Bible says He threw Himself facedown on the ground and poured out His heart to His Father. He begged and pleaded for a different outcome but ultimately, surrendered to God's will. This should be the example we follow! Our prayers don't have to feel pretty. They don't even have to be words! God knows the mourning's of our heart and He fights for us.
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don't know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. Romans 8:26 (NLT)
So, we can cry or be angry...God can handle our emotions. We don't need to avoid our feelings when we feel attacked, but turn to God for help. He is the only one who can provide the true help that we need anyway! So, in the middle of difficult times like we find ourselves in today, make Him your first response instead of your last resort! You can either worry, or you can pray...choose prayer!
Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7 (NLT)
