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.
This short conference will address the blessings and challenges of singleness in two messages and a panel discussion.
“Let me challenge you....to consider that this conversation DOES apply to you after all.”
Our theme is “Jesus and the Daring Detectives,” and will be for kids 4 years old through 6th grade.
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
I’d like to take the opportunity to shine the spotlight on that type of orphan here: older kids in foster care.
“We are very conscious of ourselves, and very conscious of how different we are from our spouses. Before God, we are all misfits in marriage.”
“When we marry we are offering ourselves to our partner to be her or his primary partner/coach/cheerleader as she or he works to grow. And—if we are wise—we are also asking her/him to help us in the same task. It’s a “spiritual friendship” of the first order.”
This conference will provide an opportunity to get equipped in the six most common problematic areas of marriage.
Change without Jesus is just behavior modification, and that is not what those struggling with same-sex attraction need.
"The truth is that a woman’s motivation in what she wears can be complicated by body image issues, art, cultural norms, or just plain ignorance."
We want our Jr. High and High School students to learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ so they can see his absolute importance in every area of their life. Sunday mornings are a time they can join with the entire church to worship, learn, and grow.
