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.

"As an emotional being, God created us as emotional beings that we might know him, connect with him, and bear his beautiful and glorious image."
“We can grieve as those who have immeasurable hope because, in Christ, God has given to us truth that is truly insightful.”
“When those ministering to Same Sex Attraction strugglers treat SSA as the defining issue in their life—making it the focal point of all counseling and discipleship—they are simply affirming the world’s message that this struggle defines their identity.”
