Who We Are

Cornerstone is a community of Jesus followers in Orangeburg and Bamberg, SC. We exist to help disconnected people find, follow, and be like Jesus.

What do we mean by disconnected?
We believe that sin has caused a deep separation from God and each other. That is why we never stumble into great friendship. This separation has affected every area of our life. But through Jesus, we can now be in real, life-giving relationship with both God and each other.

Where We Come From

Cornerstone Church was started in 1995 by a few families. Back then, these families imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender.

Care | Connect | Cultivate

We believe that to help disconnected from God and others take three distinct steps.

1. CONNECT
The first step in this process is to connect with each individual. Everyone has a unique story, past, and purpose for the kingdom of God. We do this through a variety of ways, but most significant through our small group ministry.

2. CARE
Next comes care. The old saying "No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care" is true. We desire to provide true Biblical care to all those who call Cornerstone home, whether that is emotional care, physical care, or spiritual care.

3. CULTIVATE
Like a garden, all of us need proper nurturing, direction, watering and protection to grow us into the leaders God calls us to be. This is accomplished through Biblical teaching, Godly community, encouraging serving, and many other avenues.

What This Means for You

More than ever, Cornerstone is committed to fostering a family built around our mission; To help people disconnected from God Find, Follow, and be like Jesus. Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, we will continue to be a place where anyone can find someone to be in community with as we pursue relationship with Jesus.
