Initially church meetings were held in various church members’ homes as well as Rollins Mortuary, McDonald Hughes Center, The Woolsworth and Brown Department Store, and Stillman College. A local business informed Cornerstone about a Church, Emmanuel Baptist Church, which was looking for a buyer. The facility was located at 610 Brooksdale Drive. The congregation gathered and prayed in the parking lot, claiming the facility. Cornerstone was able to hold the next three (3) services at the location at 1:00 pm following the 11:00 am worship service of Emmanuel Baptist Church. Cornerstone moved into the present site, 610 Brooksdale Drive in November 1993. This site was in the heart of a drug-infested community with no community-based worship services being offered. Cornerstone later became affiliated and connected with The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, and changed its name to Cornerstone Full Gospel Baptist Church in 1999.
By the grace of God, we have been afforded the opportunity to facilitate the needs of thousands of people, both spiritually and physically, over the last twenty-six (26) years at 610 Brooksdale Drive, and we believe that bigger, better, and greater is still to come. We have seen Cornerstone grow from those 41 founding members to over 1,500 members. Multiple worship services in multiple locations were implemented on Sunday mornings to meet the needs of those seeking God like never before.
