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.
1 Timothy 1:12-15
God has created humans in his image and likeness. The image of God is what establishes in us the unique worth of humanity. This explains our deep-seeded conviction of the worth of humanity and why it is so abhorrent to us to determine a human’s rights based on their capacity, ability, or status. In the womb, each new creation of God is fearfully and wonderfully made; each one possessing the magnificent imprint of the image of God and the subsequent inherent worth that we attribute to all of humanity. When we lose our understanding of the image of God in man, we begin to cut corners and subtly (or ignorantly) condone the exploitation of the weak. And this is exactly what is taking place today in regard to the greatest humanitarian crisis on the planet: the practice of aborting children in the US.
