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.
Personal finances are a struggle for almost everyone. But the tensions seem to be even more difficult in a place like West Los Angeles. Between the lifestyle of those around you, the cost of housing, and the pace of life, financial decisions that might be difficult under the best of circumstances can begin to feel impossible.
And yet, God has called many of us to make this uniquely difficult area home. So, how can we thrive in West LA and live the lives God has called us to live in the midst of all of these diverse pressures? How does God want us to view our spending, saving, and giving? And how can we invest in eternal treasures, even in a place with such real worldly pressures? This conference was designed to equip you with the tools you need to take the next steps toward Christlikeness in this area of your life.
