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.
“Our culture views vacations as a reward for hard and sacrificial work, an opportunity to experience adventure, and/or an escape from ‘real life.’ And while many Christians pursue and design their vacations for these same reasons, these are not biblical priorities.”
“Through the ups and downs of life I pray that the constant reality for you is your experience of the love of God.”
“Why push through the awkwardness to have those conversations with your kids? It’s another incredible opportunity to show the gospel to your kids and to their potential future spouses—to show them the power of the gospel to cover their past and to empower their future.”
“There is a big difference between parenting intentionally because it’s what you ‘should’ do and parenting intentionally because you have received that kind of intentional love from God and want to echo his love to your kids.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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?”
“Just because something makes us feel, think, or act differently doesn’t mean that it’s addressing the core issue. It’s true in physical medicine and it’s true in spiritual growth.”
“For Paul, the pursuit of perfection was not a list of do’s or don’ts. It was not even doing everything right. Perfection was not solving all problems or having all the answers to life’s dilemmas. Rather, it was connected to knowing Christ Jesus.”
"Jesus gives us clothes of salvation and righteousness that we can't earn, can't buy, and can't find here on the earth."
