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.
“At its best, religious art will draw a believer to notice something unique or profound, and thus, to worship God.”
"When we live out the gospel by letting Christ break down that wall of hostility in our relationships, attitudes, interactions, and assumptions, we live as the New Creation that God has called us to be, and He redeems the brokenness and displays the beauty of His grace."
"What I love is not the issue. Who I love is: Jesus. Reading is a joy when it leads me back to him, or to how I can live and clarify the Gospel more effectively for him."
"We should not fear literature, nor avoid it, but embrace it."
“If our Christian art only emphasizes the major theme, then it is not fully Christian, but simply romantic art. And let us say with sorrow that for years our Sunday school literature has been romantic in its art and has had very little to do with genuine Christian art. ..." – Francis Schaeffer
"Whether it be a joyful visual reminder or a difficult one, God desires to draw our hearts and minds again to Christ this Christmas through the decorations."
"When you hear Christmas music playing, whether its in the car, in the store, or in the church service, it produces a different context. It signals your heart and your mind that you are in a unique season, the Advent season."
"I want writing that will change me; that will give me a sun or a map."
"The world will never starve for want of wonders; but only for want of wonder." -G.K. Chesterston
