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.
Intro to Cornerstone is designed to give an introduction to our church: who we are, what we believe, and how you can be involved.
“We are to transmit character in the context of our everyday vocations, character that is inspired by the ultimate Good.”
“Even Christians—saved by the abounding, steadfast love of God from the plight of our own sinful hearts—fall into the trap of comparison and despair.”
How can we think about and approach the topic of gentrification with a biblical, loving view?
What does the Bible say about loving those who are suffering?
“People with disabilities are, as the Apostle Paul says, indispensable to the church.”
“Disability affects every aspect of our lives so it is indeed a big part of our identity. However, our identity is rooted primarily in Imago Dei: we are first and foremost image bearers of God.”
“Sharing the gospel is an introduction to a person, to the person that meets our greatest needs, fulfills our greatest longings, and deserves our most passionate praise.”
"The church is so much more than a building, but it is also so much more than a program."
“Mission doesn't start as an activity, it starts as an identity.”
