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.
“I’ve got the bread of life sitting right here at the table, and I go for the Fruity Pebbles instead.”
“‘In Jesus’s name we pray, amen.’ What do these words actually mean?”
“Because forgiveness is something we have, it’s something we pray for.”
“If God did not withhold His own Son but gave Him up for us, then God is not a withholding God but a giving God, and that should radically change how we ask Him for things in prayer.”
“We don’t always have the presence of mind to figure out what to say to the Lord when we are spinning.”
“Prayer only makes sense if God is King. Otherwise, why would we go to him?”
“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name...”
“Even before mankind speaks, God is listening.”
This class focuses on loving God by walking with him in a close personal relationship: listening to and learning from God in the Bible, speaking and relating to God in prayer, and internalizing and applying what God has said in heart work.
“God wants us to explore his generosity in prayer.”
