We Are Cornerstone | Finding a Family

In the middle of great change, some things are absolutely unchanging. Cornerstone’s mission and identity remains strong. We are here to help people find the Father, a Family, and a Fulfilling Future—all birthrights of God’s children. In these weeks we want to help you get ready for the best holidays of your life as you discover each of these beautiful destinations.

Knowing the Father is priceless—being part of an expansive family makes it even more wonderful! Relating in God’s family gives you a place to belong and a place to become. And, it helps you get better with your family at home, too!

Message Notes

Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are not presentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. 1 Corinthians 12: 15-27
