Cornerstone Baptist Church is home for families around the Salem, Illinois area. The Lord has truly blessed this ministry throughout the years, and we seek to keep the hand of blessing not only in our church, but in our own homes. Our desire and prayer for every person is that they know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and experience the joy of serving Him.

At Cornerstone you will find:

Bible Teaching & Preaching
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” – Romans 10:17
While the foundation of our society seems to be crumbling underneath us, God’s Word provides a solid foundation.  God’s Word is preached and taught from the pulpit every Sunday and Wednesday.

Christ-Honoring Music
“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” – Ephesians 5:19
Music, an essential element of worship, is an offering of praise to God and a ministry of encouragement to believers. At Cornerstone, you will find an emphasis on Christ-honoring music that teaches doctrinal truths and glorifies the Lord. 

A Fellowship of Friends
“We have fellowship one with another.” – I John 1:7
At Cornerstone, you will find a warm, loving fellowship of believers who endeavor to love and care for one another as Christ commanded us to do.

Laborers for the Lord
“For we are labourers together with God.” – I Corinthians 3:9
The Lord Jesus Christ commissioned His church with the responsibility to declare the gospel in their community and throughout the world. At Cornerstone, we desire to obey His command. Every member of the Cornerstone Baptist Church family is encouraged to find their place of service in the Lord’s work.

A Place for Children
“Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord.” Psalm 127:3
At Cornerstone, we believe it is God’s desire for families to worship and serve the Lord as a family. We provide a beautiful nursery with loving workers for each service on Sundays and Wednesday.
