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 place emphasis on Paul’s prayers not merely because of how constantly he prayed, but because his prayers constantly expressed his genuine love for others.”
Following Paul’s example to reprioritize prayer in our lives.
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.
“The Bible and prayer are the inhale and exhale of the Christian life.”
“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.”
“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.”
Jesus’ approach to life was unique. When we see how Jesus lived, and how he gives that life to us, we will find ourselves living like he did.
