Cornerstone Baptist Church, Dallas, and pastor Chris Simmons have been extending the Kingdom of God throughout the Fair Park community for decades. Pastor Simmons is a recipient the Texas Baptist Missions Foundation's Innovator Award for Creativity in Missions.
God is clearly moving in creative ways through the church. The congregation has a new worship center, five times the size of the previous! Several affordable homes were built by the church for low-income families in the neighborhood. The church is reaching and feeding homeless persons with a personal touch that changes lives. Students at the local elementary school are mentored through a partnership with the Champions of Hope mentoring program. The church's high school academy for at-risk students is at capacity with a waiting list. The men's and women's residental ex-offender programs are also at capacity. An on-site medical outreach provides care for about thirty patients a week.
