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.
“The Lord didn’t call us to be more than copers. He’s called us as Christians to be more than conquerors. We can walk in a way that pleases the Lord - with the concerns.”
- Stuart Scott
Worry seems to be an inevitable part of life. We worry about our jobs, families, finances, futures, and more. Sometimes it’s a low-level worry, riding along in the background as an ever-present companion. Other times the worry bubbles up into experiences of anxiety or even panic attacks. But, regardless of the magnitude, how do we deal with worry?
The circumstances that cause our worry aren’t just going away. So, we’re left to try and follow God’s instruction to “not be anxious about anything” in the midst of a world that is incredibly anxiety-inducing. Where do we even start?
In this conference, Stuart Scott, an expert biblical counselor with decades of experience studying both people and the Word of God, helped us see how we can understand worry from a biblical perspective and how God empowers us, through the gospel, to overcome it.
