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.
“The local church is the place you are equipped with the tools you need for the life God has for you.”
“...The muscles of faith we are exercising, oft unaware, in the monotonous seasons, are the ones we will call upon to do heavy lifting in the stormy vale.”
“Lord, find the creases in my soul and fill them, seek me where I hide and strip away my false maturity and my excuses.”
“Those who worship God find their home in His presence, their strength in His power, and their satisfaction in Him alone.”
When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.
“Godly lament only differs from complaining if it draws you to take refuge in the shadow of God’s wings until the disaster has passed (Psalm 57:1c).”
“Our thanksgiving should not primarily be for the gifts that God gives us or the trials which He delivers us from, but for God Himself.”
“Grumbling and complaining is a grievance made about God. Lament is a grievance made to God.”
“A little bit of cultural context and good Bible study methods can open up the stories of other women in the Bible in powerful new ways...”
“If we can learn to see our salvation as something God is doing perpetually in our lives, we will face our struggles with confidence to look to God for more grace.”
