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.
“Let me encourage you that this conference is for you (and not in the way that you think).”
“Let me challenge you....to consider that this conversation DOES apply to you after all.”
This short conference addressed some of the blessings and challenges of singleness in two messages and a panel discussion.
“Why push through the awkwardness to have those conversations with your kids? It’s another incredible opportunity to show the gospel to your kids and to their potential future spouses—to show them the power of the gospel to cover their past and to empower their future.”
“No matter what the world says, you don’t need to find another person to complete you, for you are made complete in Christ.”
"It is encouraging to know that God cares about something as silly as my frustration with toilet training (and that He is using it to shape and grow me). But more than that, I find real peace in knowing that He has a bigger vision for my life than who I marry, how my kids turn out, or what work I pursue."
Singleness is a blessing from God, but it doesn’t always feel that way.
