The story of Cornerstone Independent Baptist Church has the hand of God written all over it.
The building was sold to a contractor a number of years ago when the Church of God moved to their new location. The contractor was going to turn the church building into apartments. A pastor, who had started a church in a local motel, attempted to purchase the building from the contractor so he could use it for the new church plant he had started. After many attempts and discussions the pastor was able to purchase the building and that was the start of the Cornerstone Evangelical Free Church around 1989.
The church remained in existence for approximately 9 years. Around that time the devil got busy causing troubles and the pastor was asked to leave and a hand full of people decided to seek the help of a local Baptist pastor to help them find another shepherd. Pastor Jim God found the church a new young pastor and Cornerstone Independent Baptist Church was chartered in February 14, 1999.
Here at Cornerstone Independent Baptist Church, our main goal is to achieve the following with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit:
- To evangelize the lost through personal soul-winning, visitation, and preaching of the Word of God.
- To edify believers through the systematic teaching of the Bible.
- To establish fundamental Baptist Churches around the world through an energetic missionary program.
- To carry out the scriptural responsibilities of an autonomous Baptist Church in accordance with the principles of God’s Word.
- To earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints. (Jude 3, 4)
