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.
“Social media was not created to be used for your own desires or passions, it exists for the spread of the glory of God!”
How does God want us to use these tools for our good and his glory?
“At its best, religious art will draw a believer to notice something unique or profound, and thus, to worship God.”
“Our evangelical history—especially our recent history, over the last century—has often shaped the way we treat our Bible, and the way we over- or under-react [to gray areas] in our Christian lives. What if the ways we are reading our Bible are affected by our history and we have no idea?”
“The good life for the Christian is not found in ignoring as much as you can get away with. It’s found in navigating the complexities in between the extremes, looking for the most health (and holiness) you can find.”
Our “Gray Areas” conference discussed biblical principles to help you navigate the gray areas with holiness, grace, and confidence.
“When we’re bored we are forced to deal with our thoughts and emotions as they really are. While this may seem unpleasant at times, it is the route to being honest about ourselves, our desires, and our longings.”
"When we live out the gospel by letting Christ break down that wall of hostility in our relationships, attitudes, interactions, and assumptions, we live as the New Creation that God has called us to be, and He redeems the brokenness and displays the beauty of His grace."
"What I love is not the issue. Who I love is: Jesus. Reading is a joy when it leads me back to him, or to how I can live and clarify the Gospel more effectively for him."
"We should not fear literature, nor avoid it, but embrace it."
