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.
“It’s true that some people can’t ‘do that’ themselves—if by ‘that’ they mean take in a child in their current season of life. But orphan care is much larger than taking in a child. If by ‘that’ we mean care for orphans in their distress, then everyone can—and should—do that themselves.”
“Everyone is called to do something to care for orphans in their distress.”
“If we are not a ‘moral majority’ in this country, then what are we?”
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” - John 13:34-35
“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.”
“How can you adjust your life to experience deep Christian community?”
"Heart by heart, generation by generation, the gospel kept bearing fruit and growing like a vine. Over thousands of years the gospel spread out across the world—until it reached your heart, and grabbed a hold of you. Your life is caught up in what God has been doing for millennia."
"Like the wandering Israelites who had nothing when they awoke, but knew God would shower them with honey-flavored bread in a moment, I need to trust that He will provide."
