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.
“...I have slighted and misunderstood too many dear friends and brothers and sisters in Christ by trying to ‘not see’ their racial identity.”
“We don’t have to try to become unified, we already are. We just need to live like it.”
“What unites us in Christ is far greater than what divides us in the world.”
“...Both men and women—and therefore the church as a whole—thrive when women are challenged to live up to God’s calling in their lives.”
“Time, according to Dr. King, is not something that inevitably leads to justice, but must be harnessed by godly men to fight for that which matters.”
“The local church is God’s designated context for the multiethnic values of His Kingdom to be put on display.”
“While most Americans know who Martin Luther King Jr. is, and probably have a general idea of his role in fighting for equality for African-Americans in our country, how many have read and listened to his own words?”
“It is an inescapable conclusion that God made Cornerstone. And he made it good. And I am happy.”
“Please join me in praying for the launch of Grace Iranian Church and if you see any of them on campus, welcome them and let them know how excited we are to have them here. To God be the glory.”
“Our daily life of discipleship is how we bring glory to God.”
