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 measure of success is not only better but truly joy-giving.
“The path to joy starts with seeing what the world is really like.”
“It can be painful, quite frankly, to wrestle with hard questions about God in the midst of a world full of suffering and perceived injustice.”
“The gospel frees us to enjoy and share everything God has given to us.”
“Everyone works, and everyone needs the gospel to flourish at work.”
“I am not a person who is easily grateful, so reminders of redemption are especially needed for the constant revitalizing of my soul.”
“Science asks, ‘HOW are we here?’
Faith asks, ‘WHY are we here?’”
“Christian, you have been justified by the blood of Christ, and are therefore free from the crushing burden of having to justify yourself through your performance.”
Few things in this world can induce as much passion and obsession in people as sports.
“To be salt and light is to live the upside down life of the Sermon on the Mount, with a different purpose, different priorities, and a different posture than the world has; but salt is useless from a distance and a light is useless when hidden; if you want to make an impact on people in your life you must be distinct and engaged; you must retain your saltiness and let your light shine.”
