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.

“How should we respond if our hearts don’t jump for joy at the prospect of following Him into the unknown?”
“How can we be captured by His love for us and what it led Him to do on our behalf, and not be moved to follow Him in the work of the gospel?”
“For the Christian, it should be easy to identify strongly with the foreigner, with the one in need of an Exodus. Have we forgotten we were in Egypt?”
“A newsfeed isn’t just a content list. It is the prayer warrior’s battle plan.”
“When God calls someone to go spread the gospel, he also calls us to send them.”
“The commission of the Church is not simply an optional task to be performed by “superstar” Christians; the Great Commission is the final marching order of our King, meant to fulfill His irrepressible desire to bring all tongues, tribes, peoples, and nations into His presence, where fullness of joy and life everlasting awaits!”
“A ton of theology can hang on just one little word!”
“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.’”
