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.
He and his brilliant wife Edith began a ministry in a Swiss Chalet that they named “L’Abri” which means “Shelter.” From the early 1960s to the mid-70s, “L’Abri” was the key destination for hundreds of American and European college students and others who were trying to sort out their faith and their times. The Schaeffers hosted, taught, tutored, argued, and prayed with scores of people. Over two summer sessions, we took a look at Dr. Schaeffer's life, his writing, and his methods of ministry.
