Cornerstone exists because of Jesus. We'd love to show you how your story matters to him, and how his story matters for you.
The church isn't an organization or a building. The church is a family—God’s family, filled with redeemed sinners that are now his children because of Jesus.
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.
Through the gospel, God has made us a family. Like an earthly family, the bulk of our time together is informal and woven into our daily lives. But earthly families also put some structures in place—like family dinner—to pursue both quantity and quality time together.
The same is true of our church family: we formalize some of our activities to create and enhance deep, disciple-making relationships. We don’t want these structures to get in the way of the relationships they are meant to support. Instead, we tailor every single church ministry to facilitate our purpose as God’s family in West LA.
Instead of pursuing as many ministries as possible, we want each ministry or program to reflect the unique shape of the family God is building here at Cornerstone. Because of the unique passion, calling, love, and sacrifice of our Cornerstone members, we have a number of thriving ministries.
God designed the family as a unique and vital place where He brings His grace to children. At Cornerstone, we love to come alongside families with support and encouragement for parents and children of all ages. Our family ministries are designed to come alongside parents and help equip them to make disciples of their children.

If you are a college student, we want to welcome you into our local, multi-generational church family. At Cornerstone, we think it’s life-as-usual for college students to be integrated with the rest of our church body. We want to walk with you in community groups and in partnerships with on-campus para-church ministries.

Our women’s ministry exists to help connect women in our church and to facilitate their ministry to one another. Whether you are married, single, a stay-at-home mom or a career woman, this is a place you'll find welcoming friends to walk with you. Our women’s ministries take many forms, including a Mothers of Preschoolers group, and a weekly women’s Bible study.

Our Counseling ministry is designed to come alongside people who are struggling, in a time of crisis, or preparing for a unique season in life.
If you are particularly in need we would love the opportunity to come alongside you and help.
"We see counseling as an extension of our ministry of making disciples, and if you are particularly in need, we would love the opportunity to come alongside you and help."
The God of the Bible is the God of the powerless. Throughout the Bible God demonstrates his special love for the poor and marginalized, often acting as their advocate when they have no one else.
We partner with individuals and organizations that care for others and make disciples in our city.
"Our various Mercy Ministries reach out to the poor and marginalized around us with care and compassion."
Our mission extends across the world, which is why we partner with others to make disciples of every tribe, tongue, and nation. Our partners in Central America, South America, Asia, Europe, and Africa are all committed to making disciples in diverse ways. We are also committed to raising up another generation of global Christians who will continue to take the gospel of Christ to the least reached
