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.
Whether you have multiple children, are just thinking of starting a family, or have moved on to grandchildren (or great-grandchildren!), this conference is designed to help equip you to raise your children in wisdom, truth, and love.
This year's conference included tracks for parents of preschoolers, elementary schoolers, and Jr/Sr High students. We addressed topics including how to think about kids and salvation, talking to kids about sex, and thinking biblically about technology and internet use.
Audio from the sessions will be available in the coming weeks.
