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.
Have you ever read a story about a woman in the Bible that confused or upset you? From our modern lens, the experience of these women can feel dated and even sometimes horrific. But God is weaving an incredible narrative through the lives of women in scripture that is meant to shift the way we engage in the church today.
With part history lesson, part Bible study methods, this women’s seminar explored the complexities of understanding Biblical women in their cultural and theological context so that we might engage with them as fellow image bearers of Christ. You can listen to audio from this seminar below.
