2008 - Cornerstone was founded.

In April, both Amazing Grace Baptist and Calvary Baptist voted unanimously to form Cornerstone Baptist. Stephen Stewart has led as our Pastor since Cornerstone's beginning.

2013 - Cornerstone began our Advancing Program.

God directed us to begin a debt reduction program to help prepare us for what He has in our future.

2016 - Cornerstone became debt free!

The buildings and property are a blessing. And we are thankful our Church meets here. But our Church is not about buildings or land...it's about people.


All along God has helped us see that the Church is the people. People who God loves! We believe God desires for all people to know Him, grow in Him and serve Him. That's what we are about and what we will keep doing.
