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.
"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.”
“Is there anything that can make us genuinely excited to share the gospel with others?”
“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...”
“Christian community is messy, spiritual, intentionality.”
“You can find the richness of God’s presence in the church community.”
“...I have slighted and misunderstood too many dear friends and brothers and sisters in Christ by trying to ‘not see’ their racial identity.”
“While not everyone should know all our business, someone should.”
“The church community is the place where the gospel is put on display.”
“We don’t have to try to become unified, we already are. We just need to live like it.”
