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.
We often think about marriage through the lens of our own experience. We see things we enjoy, things we want to change, and things we aren’t sure what to think about. But marriage is about more than our experience. It’s about more than our compatibility. It’s even about more than our spiritual growth. God designed marriage to be about something bigger than us altogether. And when we realize that, we’ll see everything about marriage in a new light.
That’s what our marriage conference was about. It wasn’t just a marriage tune up from a Christian perspective. It’s a larger vision for what marriage is meant to be: your marriage if you are married and the marriages around you if you are single.
