Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. (Acts 20:28)

Cornerstone Bible Church is an independent church led by elders. Elders are responsible for leading, feeding, protecting, and caring for the flock.

Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. (1 Timothy 3:8-12)
Tim Gwyn

Tim grew up in L.A. (that's Lower Asheboro for those who are not from around here). He was saved at a New Year's Eve service on January 1st, 1992, and by the grace of God was delivered from drugs and alcohol addiction. He refers to those years as the "Lost" Episodes. Now his desire is to be a strong family leader and discipler of the brethren. His immediate ministry is with his family first, and in the workplace to anyone who has ears to listen. He has been married to Melody for 17 years and they have four children: Micah, Bailey, Titus, and Amos. Tim works as a Department Manager at Wal-Mart in Asheboro.
