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.

“Our evangelical history—especially our recent history, over the last century—has often shaped the way we treat our Bible, and the way we over- or under-react [to gray areas] in our Christian lives. What if the ways we are reading our Bible are affected by our history and we have no idea?”
"For some, gathering with family is the best part of Christmas. For others, it’s the most difficult. But why do we do it? Why not take the money and the time off and take a vacation? Why make the effort of traveling on some of the busiest travel days of the year?"
“When we complain we reject and overlook the love that God gives us constantly in our lives. When life is hard, instead of complaining we ought to find our refuge in Him. The Lord meets us in our distress, and instead of complaining we must lavish ourselves in His love.”
