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.
“He has been showing me that whenever I try to mother apart from Him, it not only results in sheer hypocrisy, it also hinders my kids from a clear view of Christ.”
“Don’t sacrifice your spiritual health at the altars of self-sufficiency and productivity.”
“Writing this letter to you has not been easy. This type of letter has forced me to think deeply of my love for you and more importantly for the love of Christ for us all.”
“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.”
"Jesus gives us clothes of salvation and righteousness that we can't earn, can't buy, and can't find here on the earth."
“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.”
“Salvation isn't a trophy to be put on a shelf, but a gift from a good Father who rejoices when we enjoy His good gift.”
“When you stop grasping at significance you don’t have and in the gospel receive ultimate significance you don’t deserve, you will find yourself being humble from your heart.”
“What do you do when you realize you're the least significant person in the room?”
“Sleep is a beautiful act of humility. When we sleep we are declaring to God that we can’t do everything we want to do. You can’t keep going. You are finite. You must rest.”
