Founded by Mike Lane, a member of Cornerstone, Hope Bridges provides food, clothing, education, basic health care, and the good news of Jesus’ love to children in rural Thailand. We also provide summer mission trip experiences to Thailand to aid the work being done. The delicious coffee we enjoy on Sunday mornings at our worship services comes from local Thai hill tribes and helps support their community and Hope Bridges’ work.
INDIA GOSPEL LEAGUE
The India Gospel League is an indigenous, Bible-centered ministry born and operated in the heart of India. Millions across South Asia still need to hear the Good News about Jesus, and millions more need practical blessings like education, medical care, and economic opportunity. More than 95,000 village churches have been planted by IGL in the past 25 years, and from these, hope is shining out to a world darkened by desperate poverty and ancient idolatry.
WITNESSING MINISTRIES OF CHRIST
Witnessing Ministries of Christ (WMC) brings new life in Christ to the outcast Dalit (untouchable) people of central India. Thousands have been brought to Christ through this ministry, and Cornerstone members have been privileged to work with WMC on short-term missions trips to India.
