Mission: Cornerstone Baptist Church exists to glorify God by loving people and helping them follow Jesus. We seek to fulfill our mission through relevant worship services, solid biblical preaching and teaching, caring supportive fellowship, and opportunities for sharing God's love with others. History: Cornerstone Baptist Church began as a Bible study led by Pastor Steve Taitt in the fall of 1988. The Bible study grew and regular services were held in the Pastor's home and then in a motel conference room. On June 10, 1990, Cornerstone Baptist Church was officially organized as a church. At that time the congregation was meeting in a rented building near the village of Goshen in Orange County, NY. Soon after it was organized the church was able to acquire about 4 acres of land on the edge of Middletown. In February of 1996, the church called Pastor Michael Switzer as its pastor. The church was soon "forced" into a building program because it had outgrown the rented facility. Construction on the present building was begun and lasted for nearly 4 years with the congregation doing most of the labor. The church met in at least 10 different locations during that time, but finally on Christmas Eve, 2001, Cornerstone began meeting at its present location at 65 Schutt Road in Middletown. Today there is a tremendous excitement at Cornerstone as the Lord continues to build the church. Young families make up most of the congregation, but there is a place for everyone young and old. Our mission is to reach our generation for Christ. We are looking forward to seeing what God will do in our future.
