The Cornerstone Christian Church Inc. started in December 1981 in Agbarho, Ughelli North Local Government Area, Delta State, Nigeria, West – Africa. It started with 13 people in one of the classrooms of Agbarho Model Primary School, Agbarho as an interdenominational ministries with the name “Jesus Power Reviving Ministries”. Bishop (Dr.) Isaac E.

In 1982, the ministry started properly as a denomination holding Sunday and weekly services. That same year, the ministry moved from the Primary School where it started to 2, Oforhie Street, Agbarho, where a temporary structure of iron sheets was built for worship and the name “Jesus Power Reviving Ministries was changed to Cornerstone Christian Church in 1989.
In 1984, the church bought a parcel of land at 12, Okotie Avenue, Agbarho and built a temporary worship structure. Upon completion of the structure, the church moved from 2, Oforhie Street, Agbarho to 12, Okotie Avenue, Agbarho. Five (5) years later, the foundation of a befitting temple of worship was laid and was completed and dedicated in 1992. The name JESUS POWER REVIVING MINISTRIES was changed to CORNERSTONE CHRISTIAN CHURCH in 1989. In 1990, the church took a giant stride and purchased as five (5) acre of land in Ikweghwu – Agbarho for the church international headquarters where all the major projects of the church will be carried out.

Our mission is to reach the world with the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are after a generation whose names are already written in the Lamb’s Book of life from the foundation of the world, but in bondage and under the elements of the world. It is this people we are going after. They know the voice of the Master and they will follow Him. It was this generation that was spoken about by the prophets. Nobody, nothing can stop them. They are the people that will bring about the last move of God. And then, the blessed name of the Lord will be glorified forever and ever.

What Members Are Saying
The Bishop is my Spiritual father indeed. A true man of God from what I have seen in him and the works God has used him to do in my life. By the grace of God I have been in the Church since 1990, while the church was still at Okotie Avenue,
I can testify of the move of God and spiritual development since I became a member of the Church. I am also a member of the Men’s Fellowship of the Church. The Church is right now at the International Headquarters in Agbarho. By the grace of God I see the church becoming a global place of worship for all, if Jesus tarries.
I know by the grace of God we shall from this church make heaven.
