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.
How does God fit into what we spend our time and energy on daily?
“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?”
- Mark 8:36
This class focuses on loving your neighbor as you walk in the world: living in community with other Christians, living on mission with non-Christians, and living out your calling in the different roles and responsibilities God has given you.
“No matter what you strive for, what you accomplish, or what heights you reach in doing it, it is nothing compared to simply knowing Him.”
“The things we work to achieve in life don’t get us control, but they can bring us joy when we see them as gifts from a good God.”
“We are meant to live for a far greater purpose than to simply bring home a paycheck, close big deals, or complete important projects.”
“God has called us to be citizens of the city of Los Angeles, and to be faithful to that calling we must seek the welfare of the city- engaging, investing, and interceding on its behalf.”
“Everyone works, and everyone needs the gospel to flourish at work.”
How should the Gospel be shaping our work life, both internally and externally?
