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.
Jesus tells us that we should be devoted to loving God and loving our neighbor (Matthew 22:34-40). Our classes help you live that out as you walk with God and walk in the world. This class focuses on loving God by walking with him in a close personal relationship: listening to and learning from God in the Bible, speaking and relating to God in prayer, and internalizing and applying what God has said in heart work.
This class is a blend of independent listening and meeting once per month for three months for a group discussion. You’ll get several audio files on one topic to listen to at your convenience (think podcast), and we’ll meet to discuss them before we move on to the next topic. This lets you learn at your own pace while also benefiting from discussion with teachers and classmates.
The next session of Walking with God is scheduled for Fall 2019. Please note that September 15 is the date the first audio sessions are released. The class does not meet until October 13 for the first discussion. Class meeting times are October 13, November 10, and December 8 from 1pm to 3pm in the Welcome Center.
