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.
“Godly lament only differs from complaining if it draws you to take refuge in the shadow of God’s wings until the disaster has passed (Psalm 57:1c).”
“It can be painful, quite frankly, to wrestle with hard questions about God in the midst of a world full of suffering and perceived injustice.”
“Suffering brings us to the end of ourselves...wooing us upward to the One from whom all blessings flow.”
What does the Bible say about loving those who are suffering?
“If this cultural movement has you feeling like you are lost on the battlefield, know that your sisters at Cornerstone are here to cry with you and to counsel.”
“People with disabilities are, as the Apostle Paul says, indispensable to the church.”
“‘Don’t be anxious about anything…’ (Phil 4:6).
But, what does that mean?...How do we simply stop feeling anxious?”
“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.”
“We don’t always have the presence of mind to figure out what to say to the Lord when we are spinning.”
“He who is forgiven much loves much, and so when we focus in on the sufferings of Jesus, we see how costly it was for Jesus to forgive our sins, and we find our love growing and growing because of his payment.”
