Our Story

How it all started...

One day, a man felt in his heart a need to start a church in the Miss Lou where all people in any walk of life from any background would be accepted and loved for who they are exactly where they were. The church's beliefs would be based solely on the principles laid out in the Bible and the church would radically love people the way God loves them. He presented the church idea to his small group and they began to pray for God's vision for the church and that He would guide their steps along the way. Cornerstone Church was officially established in the early 1980s in Vidalia, Louisiana.

The church has grown exponentially throughout the last four decades as the vision for the church has continued to be carried out. In 2020, under the current leadership of Pastor Danny Reed, Cornerstone Church moved to a new campus just across the river in Natchez, Mississippi to allow room for the explosion of growth the church has seen in the past few years. The heartbeat of Cornerstone Church remains: to radically love people the way that God loves them.

The former church campus in Vidalia, Louisiana now serves as Living Hope Montessori School, a ministry founded by Cornerstone Church.  This ministry at Living Hope is thriving and impacting families.  If you would like more info regarding our school please check it out HERE.
