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 various relational roles you are in are not what defines you and they’re not what gets in the way of you…they are your callings.”
“We are very conscious of ourselves, and very conscious of how different we are from our spouses. Before God, we are all misfits in marriage.”
“When we marry we are offering ourselves to our partner to be her or his primary partner/coach/cheerleader as she or he works to grow. And—if we are wise—we are also asking her/him to help us in the same task. It’s a “spiritual friendship” of the first order.”
This conference will provide an opportunity to get equipped in the six most common problematic areas of marriage.
"We thrive when we put aside our own desires and relate to others like Jesus: using our power to serve, not take advantage."
"To make any person happy is a very complex issue and no human being has been burdened with a task that only God can bear."
"God’s design for marriage involves a good deal of sharpening."
Do you ever wonder what the will of God is for your life? Paul tells you to 'understand what the will of the Lord is'…do you?
The world completely misunderstands sex, but it can't stop talking about it. When the church stays silent, many of us end up significantly misinformed about what sex is, what it is for, why God created it, and how we should think of it.
"Cultivate a heart that chooses and waits expectantly for delight."
