Simply put, The Gospel is good news! The good news is that the opportunity to be restored to our Creator has been extended to us. Due to our sin, we have been separated from a perfect and holy God. This perfect and holy God has required perfect obedience to His law, and yet we have all fallen far short of this perfect obedience, both in Adam and personally. Because of our sin, we deserve an eternal punishment.
You may be wondering where exactly the good news is in the midst of this tragedy. Entering this story of redemption is Jesus Christ. Jesus, being God, became man and in living a sinless life, dying a substitutionary death, and raising from the dead extended salvation to those who turn from their sin and embrace Christ in faith.
This good news extends beyond this initial interaction with Jesus Christ and becomes the basis for an ongoing walk with Jesus Christ.

We encourage you to turn from your sin and embrace Christ today. Cornerstone Church is committed to an accurate and active proclamation of the truth of Christ in His glorious Gospel.
