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.
“In spite of the brokenness and suffering in this world, God is now and will ultimately be victorious.”
“...When we avoid thinking about eternity, we cut ourselves off from a powerful reality that is coming—whether we think about it or not.”
“God will one day grant all of our desires in the complete giving of Himself, in the person of Jesus Christ, to be enjoyed forever in heaven.”
“The well-lived life must be God-exalting and soul-satisfying because that is why God created us.” - John Piper, “Don't Waste Your Life”
"Thousands of years of human history involved looking forward to a promised messiah who would make things right in the world. Living on the other side of the incarnation, it can be easy for us to forget how desperate our situation was without a Savior."
In light of eternity, we should not be asleep, and numb to the truths of God, but should be enlivened, emboldened, awakened to God and His mission.
“Belief is not the opposite of understanding, it goes hand in hand with understanding.”
“The miracle of the gospel is that you don’t need a fresh year to get a fresh start. Every morning you wake up to a fresh start through Christ.”
"One of the keys to the Christian life is the moment by moment ability to redirect our thoughts to what is most true and most important and most beautiful: the God who made us and saved us."
"We all operate under some kind of functional covenant."
