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.
“We are called to consider more than our personal convictions to ask what might best love our city.”
“He has been showing me that whenever I try to mother apart from Him, it not only results in sheer hypocrisy, it also hinders my kids from a clear view of Christ.”
“Don’t sacrifice your spiritual health at the altars of self-sufficiency and productivity.”
“Let me encourage you that this conference is for you (and not in the way that you think).”
“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.”
“Let me challenge you....to consider that this conversation DOES apply to you after all.”
“He who is forgiven much loves much, and so when we focus in on the sufferings of Jesus, we see how costly it was for Jesus to forgive our sins, and we find our love growing and growing because of his payment.”
“I closed the door to my room, sat down on my bed and asked God, ‘What more do I have to do in order to be baptized?’”
“While we still wait for the new garden, the new city, the new heavens and the new earth, we are not waiting alone. God’s Holy Spirit has made our souls alive. He has breathed over us and remade us, so that now we are born again.”
“The Bible has always used light and darkness, blindness and sight, as metaphors for our spiritual understanding. Salvation is a matter of God opening blind eyes by shining light into the darkness. Spiritual growth is a matter of having our eyes enlightened so we can see the hope, riches, and loving power of God in Jesus.”
