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.
“When God calls someone to go spread the gospel, he also calls us to send them.”
“The commission of the Church is not simply an optional task to be performed by “superstar” Christians; the Great Commission is the final marching order of our King, meant to fulfill His irrepressible desire to bring all tongues, tribes, peoples, and nations into His presence, where fullness of joy and life everlasting awaits!”
“Jesus summarized his calling for us on earth in two commands and a commission.”
“Our engagement in the mission of God extends beyond our neighbors co-workers and friends to the ends of the earth.”
Opportunities to Participate in God's Glory Among the Nations
“Peace and trust will grow in your heart as you begin to ‘get’ the very large hand of God stirring our world.”
"There is so much suffering in our world... but we can, and we ought to, at the very least pray."
We live in a huge world…a world where Christ, the greatest treasure in the universe, is not yet glorified among every tongue, tribe, and nation….and we possess the treasure!
How do we give to broken and hurting people?
The same Jesus who saved us from our sins calls us to go and make disciples of all nations. This means we have the joy and responsibility to help spread the life-giving message of the gospel across the world.
