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.
“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.”
"When we encounter and are transformed by God, you are transformed into His image: you love what He loves, and care for what He cares about- and over and over throughout God's Word He tells us that He has a unique and particular heart for the marginalized."
"Only by trusting in God fully and fixing our eyes on Christ can we overcome the obstacles that prevent us from faithfully following Christ's calling on our lives to love and care for the marginalized."
