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.
“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.”
Intro to Cornerstone is designed to give an introduction to our church: who we are, what we believe, and how you can be involved.
“Loving neighbors isn’t about moving sin elsewhere or waiting for different neighbors to arrive. It’s loving those who God has placed us around and not neglecting them.”
“The challenge for most of us is not that we are confused about what to obey but that we are often unwilling to love others as God loves them.”
“Christian community is messy, spiritual, intentionality.”
"The church is so much more than a building, but it is also so much more than a program."
“The church...will always be full of sin and brokenness, but it is also a place with the power of the gospel to guide us and empower us to love one another...”
“Is there anything that can make us genuinely excited to share the gospel with others?”
“To worship the God of the Bible is to invite openness and walk in the light.”
“The Christian life of love is a long walk in the same direction.”
“You can find the richness of God’s presence in the church community.”
“The church community is the place where the gospel is put on display.”
