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 local church is the place you are equipped with the tools you need for the life God has for you.”
“...The muscles of faith we are exercising, oft unaware, in the monotonous seasons, are the ones we will call upon to do heavy lifting in the stormy vale.”
This class focuses on loving God by walking with him in a close personal relationship: listening to and learning from God in the Bible, speaking and relating to God in prayer, and internalizing and applying what God has said in heart work.
Jesus’ approach to life was unique. When we see how Jesus lived, and how he gives that life to us, we will find ourselves living like he did.
“Those who worship God find their home in His presence, their strength in His power, and their satisfaction in Him alone.”
“God called me, a sinner, to this ministry. What in the world is going on?”
“What shall we say to these things?”
“In what seems like a cosmic act of hospitality, Jesus invites us to dwell.”
Advent is a season of waiting. For thousands of years our fallen world waited anxiously for the coming of the Messiah, the one who would rescue mankind from sin and wrath. This season of Advent (Latin for “coming”) is celebrated during the weeks leading up to the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day.
"Thousands of years of human history involved looking forward to a promised messiah who would make things right in the world. Living on the other side of the incarnation, it can be easy for us to forget how desperate our situation was without a Savior."
