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.
“...God doesn’t leave us to ourselves. In the midst of heartache, God doesn’t move on from us.”
“It is important for us as the congregation to know what God’s Word says about how we are to care for our elders.”
“The local church is the place you are equipped with the tools you need for the life God has for you.”
“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.”
“Writing this letter to you has not been easy. This type of letter has forced me to think deeply of my love for you and more importantly for the love of Christ for us all.”
“Through the ups and downs of life I pray that the constant reality for you is your experience of the love of God.”
“It is of the greatest joy and the most humbling of my life’s experiences that God has allowed me to serve you as your pastor.”
“My prayer is that you would make a decision that would facilitate your church and your family celebrating and glorifying Christ the best.”
“It is an inescapable conclusion that God made Cornerstone. And he made it good. And I am happy.”
