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.
"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice." –Philippians 4:4
We are meant to live lives of responsive celebration: celebrating God because of His goodness, love, and grace that He has lavished upon those who believe in Him. At Cornerstone one of the ways we reflect this celebration is through special events.
The Harvest Festival is Cornerstone’s annual Fall party where we can celebrate as a church family and invite our neighborhood community to celebrate with us. We provide various activities and games such as hamster ball races, jumpers, laser tag, piñatas, face painting and much more.
VBS is a week of fun, adventure, learning, and powerful testimony to the grace and supreme worth of Jesus Christ. Students are broken up by grade level and learn through teaching, fun, games, singing songs, watching skits, making crafts, and building friendships with other students their age!
The whole church gathers for a Celebration of Cultures: a potluck where every person is encouraged to bring food that represents their heritage. We enjoy the food and learn about each other through enjoying food from other cultures.
Most years the church goes away together for a weekend of games, prayer, and meeting new friends. Los Angeles can be a hard place to get to know people—this retreat is one opportunity to make new friends and deepen old friendships.
Holidays are at time for us to reflect on God and the gospel. We celebrate Easter and Christmas on Sundays and through special services, allowing the rhythm of the seasons to guide our meditation on the person and work of Jesus.
