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.
The Cornerstone Women’s Retreat will be from October 5-7 at the Forest Home facility in Ojai, CA. Our retreat will offer something for everyone—whether you want to connect with other women at Cornerstone and be encouraged in your faith, need some time away to renew your mind and body, or just want a brief escape from all of the distractions of LA life to read your Bible. Join us for a deep dive into 2 Corinthians 4 as we meditate on what it means to be renewed in the presence of Christ.
Check-in begins at 5:00 p.m. and will be available until 9:00 p.m. Dinner will begin at 6:00 p.m. and the first teaching session at 7:15 p.m., so we recommend that you arrive in time to enjoy those. If you want to get out of town before traffic, hit up the shops in Ojai or enjoy a hike in the area before heading up to Forest Home.
