About Us

Our vision is to enable people to walk in victory through the Word of God and to be a church where people can experience the presence of an awesome God. God is love and it is our heart’s desire to be a church where God’s love flows to everyone. We accomplish this by reaching out to our own community and then to the nations of the world.

Our Pastors

In 1993, Cornerstone Word of Life Church began with a vision. Pastor Mark Garver moved to Madison, AL with only that, a vision: raising up a generation from infants to adults to know Him and to make Him known. Pastor Mark moved here with $900 in cash, two friends, a car that barely ran, but more importantly, a vision from God that was burning in his heart.

"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."


We support missionaries all over the world both financially and spiritually. Our church takes several missions trips throughout each year as the Holy Spirit directs. God has shown Himself mightily through salvations, healings, and miracles on each trip.

Something for everyone


We have something for everyone. We’re all on a journey to become more like Jesus – loving God, serving people, & building the church together.


Kinnect Groups are the key to getting connected at CWOL. By creating a sense of family and enabling you to build relationships, they make you feel at home. No matter what your interests, career goals, stage of life or zip, there’s a Kinnect Group that’s a great fit for you.
