Our mission is to band together churches to, for the sake of Jesus and the gospel, plant an inner city church in Rochester, NY. This work is done in obedience to the great commission (Matt. 28:18-20), with the goal of seeing lives changed by the power of the good news of Jesus Christ.

Our approach will be to find, assess, and resource a qualified lead church planter. We will then seek to support him in his efforts and the efforts of his team. While we will screen and monitor for biblical doctrine and character, we will trust a qualified leader to determine the best methods, timelines, and approaches for planting in his neighborhood. Our hope is that the end result will be a Gospel centered, bible teaching church that reaches primarily an inner city demographic.


The Cornerstone Mission is led by a board of directors, and supported by multiple area churches. See full board bios and a list of partnering churches on our Leadership Page.
