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.

“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.”
“I am convinced it is the Holy Spirit at work in my heart. Lately, he whispers, ‘Always be prepared to give a reason for the hope that is in you.’”
“When we are honest about the magnitude of suffering in our fallen world we have an opportunity to see the magnitude of God’s hope in Christ put on display.”
“Just because something makes us feel, think, or act differently doesn’t mean that it’s addressing the core issue. It’s true in physical medicine and it’s true in spiritual growth.”
“For Paul, the pursuit of perfection was not a list of do’s or don’ts. It was not even doing everything right. Perfection was not solving all problems or having all the answers to life’s dilemmas. Rather, it was connected to knowing Christ Jesus.”
