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.
"Like a master builder Christ is building His Church, and He isn't looking for stones of the same size, shape, color, or background. He's using stones from every corner of this world, of every color of the rainbow, with different sizes, shapes, backgrounds, and He is doing so in order to display His universal deity over all creation and His manifold wisdom and artistry."
God tells us in His Word two important things about heaven. First, that there will be people from every tribe, tongue, people and nation. Second, that there will be a feast. This event is meant to be an answer to Christ's prayer, that God's will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We will be celebrating, sharing, and enjoying each other's cultural/ethnic/national heritages by feasting together on food from our respective backgrounds.
Identify a dish, a drink, or a dessert from one of your cultural/ethnic/national heritages that you would love to prepare and share with the rest of our Cornerstone family.
Contact Pastor Matt (firstname.lastname@example.org), telling him which dish and what heritage you will be representing, and show up on Sunday, June 4th after the 2nd service for our celebration!
Matt serves Cornerstone by overseeing Family Ministries.
