Why We Built A Church Inside A Prison

In 2015, Cornerstone Church of San Diego built a satellite campus within the walls of one of the most notorious prisons in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico which houses over 7,000 inmates, including 700 women. Iglesia Cornerstone La Mesa Prison serves as a restoration and rehabilitation center for every inmate and family visitor. In partnership with the local warden, Iglesia Cornerstone brings hope, healing, and resources to every inmate such a clothing, shoes, medical supplies, hygiene necessities, family counseling, and more. The Tijuana state prison is located six miles from our Tijuana campus, which allows us to bring a full gamut of restoration to both those incarcerated as well as their loved ones outside of prison.

In partnership with the local warden, every inmate along with their family is required to attend a weekend service before each visitation. The mission and vision they encounter in a weekend service provides families with the tools needed to restore them back to a spiritual awakening and sufficiency. The stories of countless lives and hearts who’ve experienced a heart revolution in Iglesia Cornerstone La Mesa Prison is proof that we serve a God who breaks the rules.
