Cornerstone exists because of Jesus. We'd love to show you how your story matters to him, and how his story matters for you.
The church isn't an organization or a building. The church is a family—God’s family, filled with redeemed sinners that are now his children because of Jesus.
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.
"so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another."
– Romans 12:5 ESV
Sin has separated us from God and from one another. The church is the place that God has begun to reverse this “curse” in the world. It is the inbreaking of reconciliation, and as people come to faith in Jesus Christ, they are united in His Body, and are made individually members of one another. This is what church membership is: spiritual unity in Christ, covenantal commitment to each other, and belonging to one another, responsible for one another, caring for one another. This is membership. This is church.
