The God of the Bible is the God of the powerless. Throughout the Bible God demonstrates his special love for the poor and marginalized, often acting as their advocate when they have no one else.

Every section of the Bible details God's care for the poor. The Law of Moses outlines the responsibility of God’s people to care for one another in times of need. The writings and the prophets offer warnings for those who take advantage of the needy and oppressed, and describe God’s heart for the desperate. The ministry of Jesus and the lifestyle of the New Testament Church make it clear that we have a Christian responsibility to actively love the lowly, broken, and hurting people in our community.

At Cornerstone, we happily embrace our responsibility to engage, pursue and love the marginalized. This means we actively and intentionally reach past our normal social circles to find those without a voice in our city. To this end we often partner with organizations that specialize in discovering the marginalized in various segments of our city. This allows us to draw close and care for men, women, and children who are usually overlooked.
