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.
“For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.” – 1 John 3:11 ESV
Our community groups are the heartbeat of our church, the place where we learn and grow together as a small group (generally 8-12 people). These groups each have their own unique identity but are usually places of Bible study, prayer, meals, and relational discipleship. It’s more than just a Bible study. They are designed to be a network of relationships where you meet and connect with other people, are befriended, listened to, loved, and served as together we learn more about Jesus and His will for our lives.
Community groups meet in a variety of neighborhoods all over the Westside, including Lawndale, Century City, West LA, Santa Monica, Culver City, Palms, and everywhere in between. They typically gather for formal times once a week, and there are groups available at a variety of days and times throughout the week.
