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.
“God in His wisdom allows us to experience a mix of great victories, painful failures, realized dreams, and disappointed hopes.”
“We usually think joy is found by running from the realities of death. The Preacher tells us the opposite.”
“God is always near, always present, always holding us close, and through his Word, he is whispering words of true comfort to us.”
“People with disabilities are, as the Apostle Paul says, indispensable to the church.”
“Disability affects every aspect of our lives so it is indeed a big part of our identity. However, our identity is rooted primarily in Imago Dei: we are first and foremost image bearers of God.”
“The LORD graciously and lovingly wants you to feel dumb, to take your eyes off your idols and fix them on Him.”
“I bring all of my fears and doubts, the lies and uncertainties, and lay them at your feet, O Lord.”
“Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in the Lord.”
“...When we avoid thinking about eternity, we cut ourselves off from a powerful reality that is coming—whether we think about it or not.”
This class focuses on loving God by walking with him in a close personal relationship: listening to and learning from God in the Bible, speaking and relating to God in prayer, and internalizing and applying what God has said in heart work.
“Even Christians—saved by the abounding, steadfast love of God from the plight of our own sinful hearts—fall into the trap of comparison and despair.”
“At a certain point, I could no longer deny the inconvenient fact that something was wrong with me.”
“Moving through necessary justice towards a spirit of compassion, mercy and forgiveness, even for the most vile of perpetrators, is what allows us...to display the scandalous, beautiful, life-changing power of the Gospel.”
How do we deal with worry and anxiety?
“The trajectory of our thoughts have an effect not just on our mood, but on our physical brain and immaterial soul.”
