Cornerstone Community Church
The Miracle House
For many years we had a drug and prostitution house located next to our church. This house was a nightmare for us and our neighbors. The police raided this house one day. Then we boarded up the house ourselves. The drug dealers kept breaking in and staying there. After a drug dealer set the house on fire, we took the lone remaining dealer to a drug rehab. He stopped using drugs and was called the “walking miracle.”
The news got even better. After much persistence, hard work and prayer, the house was given to our church on January 23, 2007. The house had been seized as a drug forfeiture by the District Attorney. The DA presented the house to our church for 100 pennies which we had collected from our members. News reporters, TV cameras, politicians, police and even the District Attorney were there for the presentation ceremony. The event was in the newspapers and on the evening news.
The even better news was that ever since that time we have run our addictions recovery ministry there. We have a weekly Bible study for those struggling with addictions. We are hosting both Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings. We have a partnership with the House of Adonai Christian recovery program.
The Lord continues to work powerfully through our addictions ministry. Many are finding help and healing. So many adults at our church have truly amazing stories of how Jesus Christ has transformed their lives from the slavery of addiction. That is why we call this building the Miracle House.
