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.
“Gangs are all throughout our city, and we shouldn’t view them as a problem but rather as a gospel priority.”
We’ll look at Scripture and the gang member’s experience so that we can better love those in our city.
“Our life is to be understood as walking in the world in love for others.”
“In a time where people seem to be pressing more vehemently than ever to make their thoughts, beliefs, and frustrations known, we have a tremendous opportunity to demonstrate Christ’s love by humbly asking questions...”
“We are called to consider more than our personal convictions to ask what might best love our city.”
“If we are not a ‘moral majority’ in this country, then what are we?”
“I am convinced it is the Holy Spirit at work in my heart. Lately, he whispers, ‘Always be prepared to give a reason for the hope that is in you.’”
Paul so treasured the gospel that, even in the midst of his mistreatment, he was compelled to speak of the glorious truths and promises of the gospel.
“God has a profound heart for the poor and the marginalized, and if we are going to follow Him as our Lord and Savior, we must reflect that same heart.”
“It’s true that some people can’t ‘do that’ themselves—if by ‘that’ they mean take in a child in their current season of life. But orphan care is much larger than taking in a child. If by ‘that’ we mean care for orphans in their distress, then everyone can—and should—do that themselves.”
“Paul openly and tenderly shares his joy at the good news about the little growing church at Thessalonica, and prays for them - and us - in very specific and encouraging ways.”
