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.

The Bible is precious, enjoyable, exciting, and sustaining. But whether you have just become a Christian or you’ve been a believer for decades, the Bible can seem unapproachable. Odd stories in the Old Testament, confusing images in the book of Revelation, and the sheer number of pages (usually over 1000!) can be overwhelming for anyone. But every word in the Bible is “breathed out by God” (2 Tim 4:12)—and what God breathes out is meant to be understood! This class will teach you how to listen to God well so that you can understand what He says and apply it to every aspect of your life.
This class is a blend of lecture and discussion. Bring a listening ear, honest questions and comments—we’ll all be learning from God’s Word together. Some reading is required in order to supplement what is being learned in class.
