After the video clip of Hagee’s warm welcome surfaced, Hagee issued a statement, saying that he regretted the decision to allow the ReAwaken America Tour to use the church’s facility. Hagee also apologized for what took place in the church’s sanctuary, reassuring Cornerstone congregants that, in the future, the church will only host organizations that reflect their mission and vision.
Read Hagee’s full statement below:
Last week I allowed an event to be held at Cornerstone Church by an outside organization. Regrettably, the organization was not properly vetted. It was not appropriate to allow this event at our church. The Church is not associated with this organization and does not endorse their views. I was invited to welcome the crowd where I thanked veterans for their service and thanked the crowd for their commitment to their faith. I deeply regret, and ask forgiveness, for what took place in the Cornerstone sanctuary as a result of my oversight. In the future, Cornerstone Church will ensure that organizations using our facility are an appropriate reflection of our mission and vision.
