The amalgamation of Ridgecrest Baptist Church and New Hope Baptist Church resulted in a new congregation called Hillcrest Baptist Church. The new congregation worshipped at the 9th Ave building until 2008, when the decision was made to move to 805 Sherbrooke Avenue on the Kamloops North Shore.
The congregation decided to change their name because the Sherbrooke Ave building was not on a hill, like the 9th Ave building had been. After some deliberation, "Cornerstone" was suggested and accepted as a new name. Thus, Cornerstone Baptist Church was born.
The welcoming and friendly congregation continues to meet at their Sherbrooke Ave building.
