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.
This class focuses on loving your neighbor as you walk in the world: living in community with other Christians, living on mission with non-Christians, and living out your calling in the different roles and responsibilities God has given you.
“We are called to consider more than our personal convictions to ask what might best love our city.”
“If we are not a ‘moral majority’ in this country, then what are we?”
The Reformation was one of the most important times in the history of the Church.
“Evangelism requires a personal, full, inviting gospel.”
“Don’t let the fact that your neighbors have different morals, a different lifestyle, or a different worldview than you stand in the way of you taking the time to really get to know them.”
“If we are going to be the faithful ambassadors that Christ has called us to be, and not tourists, we must be people who are intentional, generous, and inviting.”
“Evangelism is what completes your joy in Christ.”
“This is the context where life-on-life relationships take place, where the ‘one-anothers’ of Scripture are lived out, and where Christian community happens.”
"Heart by heart, generation by generation, the gospel kept bearing fruit and growing like a vine. Over thousands of years the gospel spread out across the world—until it reached your heart, and grabbed a hold of you. Your life is caught up in what God has been doing for millennia."
