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.
“A life of Christian maturity is a life of unity, prayer, and meditation on God's truth.”
“Citizenship is not simply a status but a whole way of living.”
“The goal of the Christian life is progress, not perfection.”
“Acceptance cannot be achieved, it can only be received.”

“Salvation isn't a trophy to be put on a shelf, but a gift from a good Father who rejoices when we enjoy His good gift.”
“When you stop grasping at significance you don’t have and in the gospel receive ultimate significance you don’t deserve, you will find yourself being humble from your heart.”

“Our spiritual growth stops when our fear overcomes our courage.”
“God has given us a singular passion: to enjoy and display his glory in everything we do.”
“As our focus narrows on the gospel, our joy expands to cover all of our life.”

Your life is a painting, and God is the master artist. He who began a good work will bring to completion His masterpiece.
Paul so treasured the gospel that, even in the midst of his mistreatment, he was compelled to speak of the glorious truths and promises of the gospel.
A sanctified life is anything but a boring life- a sanctified life is a life of discovery and adventure, where you more and more uncover the infinite glories of God's joy, hope, purpose, and love.
Deep respect and honor can be experienced only when one begins to work alongside those who lead us doing the work of the ministry.
In light of eternity, we should not be asleep, and numb to the truths of God, but should be enlivened, emboldened, awakened to God and His mission.
“Belief is not the opposite of understanding, it goes hand in hand with understanding.”

“One of the most powerful ways we can imitate other churches throughout history and the world is in how they suffer faithfully.”
“You yourselves know how the gospel is ministered here at Cornerstone.”
“The greatest joy for Cornerstone’s pastors is to see each member grow to love God more, love others more, and place their hope more fully in Christ.”
