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.

Over the past few months we’ve been walking through our Discipleship Pathway. As we stop at the mid-way point in our sermon series we want to highlight how we the Discipleship Pathway can be utilized regularly (daily, weekly, annually) to help you continue to grow in Christlikeness. It’s also important to recognize that the Discipleship Pathway can’t be used alone. It must be used together in community so we can see ourselves more accurately and know God more fully.
1. How could you begin to use the Discipleship Pathway daily?
2. How could you begin to use the Discipleship Pathway weekly?
3. How could you begin to use the Discipleship Pathway annually/semi-annually?
4. Who should you be using the Discipleship Pathway with?
5. How would some of your close relationships look different if you were intentional about talking about the different areas of the Discipleship Pathway?
Scott serves the church by overseeing leadership, development, global ministries, and counseling/discipleship.
