Cornerstone exists because of Jesus. We are a people who have been transformed by the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, God has forgiven us and adopted us into his family. Now, we have a whole new life.
Through the gospel, God redeems us, forgives us, and adopts us into his family. The good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection makes each one of us a new creation and gives us a new identity: children of God. This is why we can never think of the church as an organization or a building. The church is actually a family—God’s family, filled with redeemed sinners that are now his children.
Through the gospel, God forgives us, adopts us into his family, and makes us his disciples. This means that the church is not just any family. We are a family formed by God—and sent out with a purpose.
The church is a family that ministers to one another, cares for one another, and builds one another up. Each member of the family is a child of God who is uniquely gifted to bless the family and to be a light in our city.
Just like a vine grows best with a good trellis, our church family grows best with good programs. Our programs and ministries are tailored to support the community and mission God has given us.
When we witness suffering, we tend to either run away from it or want to fix it. One way or another we want the suffering to go away. This seminar will consider what the Bible says about suffering and mankind in order to effectively move towards those who are suffering, not to fix, but to love the struggling brother or sister. We will explore structured tools that will aid us in practically carrying out this call to love day-by-day, moment-by-moment.
Please note that this seminar has been postponed. We will update this page with registration details once the event has been rescheduled. Thank you.
