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.
“The pathway reminds you of the plot of your life, and the person behind it all.”
“I am not a person who is easily grateful, so reminders of redemption are especially needed for the constant revitalizing of my soul.”
“Your roles and responsibilities aren’t an accident. You are called by God.”
“What shall we say to these things?”
“Sharing the gospel is an introduction to a person, to the person that meets our greatest needs, fulfills our greatest longings, and deserves our most passionate praise.”
“We do not love God so that he will love us in return. We love God because he has already loved us completely in Christ.”
“God asks for perfection; Jesus comes to give us His.”
“Easter tells us that Jesus did what we could never do: pay for our sins and come back alive.”
“Sin is putting yourself in God’s place. Salvation is God putting himself in yours.”
“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.”
