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 church is so much more than a building, but it is also so much more than a program."
“The church...will always be full of sin and brokenness, but it is also a place with the power of the gospel to guide us and empower us to love one another...”
The Reformation was one of the most important times in the history of the Church.
“Our daily life of discipleship is how we bring glory to God.”
"For those of you who are in a Community Group, I invite you to take this opportunity to stop and consider how you have seen God at work in your life and in your group."
"The Bible reveals to us two incredibly important things about heaven. First, it says that there will be saints in heaven from every tribe, tongue, people and nation. Second, it says that there will be a feast."
Servant-ministers are the heart of the church, and the group of people that do the vast majority of interpersonal ministry in the context of the body of Christ.
What is a pastor? It may not be a question you ask yourself very often, but it is an incredibly important one.
The church is not a familial organization…but simply an organized family.
How are we going to live as a family here at Cornerstone?
