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.

“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?”
“Being a Christian means walking in the world: enjoying close relationships with Christians, enjoying close relationships with non-Christians, and pursuing your roles and responsibilities in love.”
“God has a profound heart for the poor and the marginalized, and if we are going to follow Him as our Lord and Savior, we must reflect that same heart.”

“Peace and trust will grow in your heart as you begin to ‘get’ the very large hand of God stirring our world.”
Dr. Francis Schaeffer became a missionary in Europe in the years following World War II when America and Europe were now aware of the unimaginable cruelty the war had revealed, and wondered if faith in God meant anything.
“If I wake up to a day that God has prepared, then my surprise is his delight, and excitement is peak, anticipation a joy.”
