New people have discovered, time and time again, that one of the best ways to launch into Cornerstone after visiting a service or two is by joining one of the growth groups, our small group for new people and families. Are you new? Click Here for the info about Growth Groups!


If you are thinking of visiting Cornerstone Baptist, we would like to share with you some basic details of what you can expect …

Please Note: How far in advance should you plan to arrive? Allow 15 minutes, especially if you are checking children in to Cornerstone Kids, our children’s programs. Sunday School is an hour and our  service is about an hour and fifteen minutes. 


Music and Worship Style: The Worship Style at Cornerstone Baptist Church is led by vocalists and a pianist singing mostly traditional hymns to create a worship experience that is a singular part of the worship service as a whole. The focus of our Celebration Services is Jesus Christ and the clear, plain teaching of the Word of God.


Cornerstone Kids Check In Process: 

Sunday School hour: Every Sunday, your child can experience God’s love through creative, fun biblical teaching. For kids infant to 3rd Grade checking in begins 15 minutes before Sunday school. All other ages are welcome to head to their classrooms. Please take your children to the connection desk and our friendly greeter will assist you from there. Parents are welcome to experience Cornerstone Kids with their child. Please check in with the Lead Teacher in the classroom. 


Sunday Service: In order to provide the best worship experience for everyone, we ask families with young children (infant to 5yr. old) to take advantage of Cornerstone Kids Watch. 

Young children are welcome begin in the worship service with their families and are then dismissed part way through the service to attend our Cornerstone Kids Watch. You are also welcome to keep them with you throughout the whole service. 


For other policies and more information, see the Cornerstone Kids section of our website.



What to Wear / What to Bring

What to Wear: We are a casual congregation. Feel free to wear whatever you would like. Our pastor wears a tie because he enjoys it, he is usually the only one with a tie so don’t feel bad, come as you are! 

Bring Your Bible: Every message at Cornerstone Baptist Church is based completely in the Word of God. Pastor Josh preaches expositionally (verse-by-verse) through entire books of the Bible. If you don't have a Bible we have one for you, consider it our gift for you to take home with you! 

Bring an open heart. Come expecting to hear God’s voice and learn something about Him, and yourself!

Bring a friend. We encourage you to bring a guest to service. God calls us to share our faith; you never know the impact you can make on someone’s life by a simple invitation.


Parking: We share a parking lot with O’reilly’s Auto Parts. We do our best to keep the close spots open for our guest. Overflow parking is located in the elementary school parking lot on S. Trilein Drive.
