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.
“A married couple who see themselves engaged in a three-way deep connection with God and each other can experience a deeply satisfying and spiritually enriching life, despite the circumstances they encounter, because they are aware they are encountering those circumstances together.”
Many of us went through some sort of Pre-marital Counseling before we got married. We sat down and talked about all of the different areas of marriage and were, hopefully, given a helpful foundation. But what about “Mid-marital Counseling”? We tend to only reach out for help when we’re in crisis, however we all know that there are aspects of our marriage that could be healthier, or ways we could go deeper with our spouse. This conference is designed to provide just that. Breakout sessions will cover the six most common problematic areas of marriage, and will provide an opportunity for you to get equipped for some of the areas in your marriage where you wish things were a little bit better, but just aren’t sure how to make that happen.
All sessions are licensed for private use under the following license.
Taught by Pastor Jim Leonard
God intends you to grow in your marriage relationship, and discover something new – a deeper relationship with a person from a completely different and weird gender – in some ways the most unlikely person to grow deep with - but the exact and only person to lead you into a deeper relationship with your Lord.
Taught by Pastor Jose Gonzalez
Parenting can be a consuming season in life. How do you continue to grow and nurture your marriage while investing in your kids. Pastor José, a father of three, will help you identify key strategies for growing closer in marriage during the child-rearing years.

At one point or another, finances become a source of tension in every marriage. How do you talk about money without fighting? How do you make financial decisions when you have different priorities or histories with money? Pastor Brian will help you to navigate these difficult waters with wisdom regarding finances in marriage.
God has designed husbands and wives to fulfill different roles in marriage. But, what does that actually look like? How do you apply biblical gender roles in our world today in a way that honors and empowers both husband and wife to live the life God has called them to live. Pastor Brian will explore this difficult topic with specific, practical application.
Taught by Pastor Chris Wessel
You can't have a marriage without having conflict. Growing deeper and closer in your marriage does not come from avoiding conflict but from learning how to resolve it biblically. Pastor Chris will walk through what biblical conflict resolution entails and give helpful insight into what to do when you feel stuck.
Sex is a big part of marriage. And it can also be a big source of tension and disagreement in marriage. What does godly physicial intimacy entail, and how can we understand sex biblically? How should we think about our struggles in this area of marriage. Pastor Scott will discuss God's design for sex as well as the guiding principles we can draw from it as well as looking at some of the difficulties couples have and how to navigate this sensitive topic within marriage.
