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.
“Jesus’ power to take the place of death and raise to life is incredibly personal. He calls you by name! ‘Come out! I’m taking your place!’”
“We feel pressure to be the perfect host, perfect parent, or perfect friend, and we struggle to live up to our own expectations for what these things look like.”
“Oh how easily we are deceived by the enticement of the quick fix.”
“Jesus knew the official’s need was more than simply the fever that threatened the life of his son.”
“Seeing the miracle doesn’t create faith. The power to create faith comes from hearing His Word.”
“Our reluctance to believe miracles says more about us than it does about how reality works.”
Looking at what the Bible has to say about godly confidence.
“God in His wisdom allows us to experience a mix of great victories, painful failures, realized dreams, and disappointed hopes.”
“Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in the Lord.”
“In spite of the brokenness and suffering in this world, God is now and will ultimately be victorious.”
