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.
“Our engagement in the mission of God extends beyond our neighbors co-workers and friends to the ends of the earth.”
“God has called us to be ambassadors to the people of the city of Los Angeles. He deeply and passionately loves Los Angeles, and we must, too.”
“Sharing the gospel is an introduction to a person, to the person that meets our greatest needs, fulfills our greatest longings, and deserves our most passionate praise.”
"The church is so much more than a building, but it is also so much more than a program."
“Mission doesn't start as an activity, it starts as an identity.”
“Is there anything that can make us genuinely excited to share the gospel with others?”
“God is still pursuing lost sheep. And now, he’s doing it through us.”
This class focuses on loving your neighbor as you walk in the world: living in community with other Christians, living on mission with non-Christians, and living out your calling in the different roles and responsibilities God has given you.
“We are called to consider more than our personal convictions to ask what might best love our city.”
