The word “Communion” is derived from the Biblical word Koinonia. Koinonia is the word commonly used in the New Testament to describe the relationships within the early church, signifying deep relationship and a union of heart and soul because of their union with and in Christ, allied with their desire to see the gospel advance. Communion gives the connotation of family, interdependence, walking and advancing together in partnership.
It is because of this that the churches of the Cornerstone Collective intentionally pursue relational communion one with another. This is seen and experienced as the elders and leaders of the churches make a commitment to gathering together, praying together, walking together, sharing resources and experiences together, planting churches together, worshiping together, engaging in Collective initiatives together and leading our churches to do the same.
