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.
“Our engagement in the mission of God extends beyond our neighbors co-workers and friends to the ends of the earth.”
How can we think about and approach the topic of gentrification with a biblical, loving view?
“Since the Fall the world has been plagued by death and injustice, but one day Jesus will return, fully and finally fixing the world.”
“Jesus died for you and me, but He also died for abusive dads, neglectful moms, people capable of all kinds of horrors — and He died for their children, too.”
“Loving neighbors isn’t about moving sin elsewhere or waiting for different neighbors to arrive. It’s loving those who God has placed us around and not neglecting them.”
“God has a profound love and heart for those who are maginalized in our society- the foreigner, the orphan, the widow, the refugee; and He calls us to reflect that same heart.”
“A ton of theology can hang on just one little word!”
“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.’”
