To Train, Ordain and Commission


Welcome to Cornerstone Association of Apostles & Prophets Established in 2005 by the Will of God. Cornerstone Association of Apostles is a Gathering Place for God’s Apostles and Prophets.  As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another Proverbs 27:17… The days that we live in are not normal times. God’s End-Time Plan for His Church and Planet Earth will continue as He has planned!  As Apostles of Jesus Christ our Chief Cornerstone it is time to raise the standards of your Apostleship and become a more vital part in the coming moves of God. 


After Jesus had selected the twelve disciples the Bible tells us that He trained them, ordained them and sent them out and before He ascended to Heaven to sit at the Right Hand of His Father, He commissioned them in Matthew 28:18-20 by saying: 


“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you and surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”


Cornerstone Association of Apostles was established by the Will of God to Gather His Apostles. To train, ordain and Commission them for this End Time Season. Every Office of Ministry whether it’s the Five-Fold Ministry Gifts or the Appointed Offices of Ministry should be trained for their Call... “No Man is an Island to Himself” In Romans 14:7 the Apostle Paul writes “For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself”. “Every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main”; is a phrase made famous by John Donne (1572-1631). There is a profound meaning in this statement, especially for Apostles and Prophets. 


Apostles and prophets can be stubborn, arrogant and prideful when it comes to Association. Pride can be a hindrance for many things. Pride separates us from others and makes us like an isolated island. Pride tells us that we can handle things on our own and that we don’t need anyone else, but this is not true. Proverb’s 15:22 says, “Without counsel, plans go awry but in the multitude of counselors they are established. “Resist the Spirit of Pride… 


It is clear how important it is to have people in your life who you can depend on and who can depend on you. When you are pursuing God’s plan for your life along with others who are doing the same, you can combine your gifts and talents with theirs. You may have a strength in a certain area where someone else is weak; you can help that person with your strength and vice versa. 


If you’re an Island trying to make life work on your own, then you’re going to have a much more difficult time reaching your full potential. Therefore, if you are an Apostle already walking in your Call or have been Called into Apostleship and need Counsel, Training, Ordination and Commissioning or Accountability, Enhancement, Impartation and Fellowship, then Cornerstone Association of Apostles and Prophets is the “Gathering Place for you, God’s Apostles and the same for God’s Prophets.
