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.
Everyone searches for their purpose, asking, “Why am I here?” But when Jesus came to earth He already knew why He was sent. He was sent to seek and to save the lost. There are two definitions of lost: to be unable to find your way, and something that is ruined or destroyed. Those who are lost, unable to find their way home, Jesus comes and He seeks you out. Those who have experienced the destruction, brokenness, and lostness of this world and of your own hearts, Jesus comes and He saves you. This is why Jesus came.
