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.
“God’s heart for the gang member is rooted in the fact He created them as image-bearers and sees their sin and suffering and offers them hope in His Son.”
“Our engagement in the mission of God extends beyond our neighbors co-workers and friends to the ends of the earth.”
How do we deal with worry and anxiety?
“Left to myself, I am a difficult god to know, much less serve, much less satisfy.”
"Life can seem more deeply disappointing as you accumulate years and experiences...Yet all of us, at every age, struggle with how life isn't working."
“In what seems like a cosmic act of hospitality, Jesus invites us to dwell.”
“Mary could feel the excitement of those around her, exclaiming and praising, shouting and even crying as they rejoiced at the sight of this man entering the city like a king.”
“What shall we say to these things?”
“Jesus comes home as the King, and he comes home gentle.”
“Sharing the gospel is an introduction to a person, to the person that meets our greatest needs, fulfills our greatest longings, and deserves our most passionate praise.”
"The church is so much more than a building, but it is also so much more than a program."
This year's VBS will focus on how living a life following God can be an adventure!
