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.
“There is a gap between heaven and earth- we try to climb our way to heaven, and fail; we try to find heaven on earth, and we fail; so heaven comes down.”
“At the heart of Christianity is that the eternal Son of God was born as Jesus of Nazareth, fully human.”
“Christmas is about the eternal Son of God coming in person.”
"Thousands of years of human history involved looking forward to a promised messiah who would make things right in the world. Living on the other side of the incarnation, it can be easy for us to forget how desperate our situation was without a Savior."
"By focusing in on what wasn’t there to celebrate, we create space for a true and deep celebration on what was in a manger on Christmas Day."
"One of the keys to the Christian life is the moment by moment ability to redirect our thoughts to what is most true and most important and most beautiful: the God who made us and saved us."
"During Advent, we remember that our hope is still to come—and that God is faithful to his promise. As the weeks of Advent pass, we feel our need for Jesus."
