Hillcrest Baptist Church

Baptist (CNBC)


Hillcrest Baptist Church was born when Ridgecrest Baptist Church and its mission church, New Hope Baptist Church, combined into a new congregation.

The new church, which met at 1393 9th Ave, decided to call itself Hillcrest Baptist Church.

In 2008, the congregation decided to move to the North Shore. They purchased the 805 Sherbrooke Avenue building, moved to it, and renamed the congregation "Cornerstone Baptist Church".


1994: Ridgecrest Baptist and New Hope Baptist amalgamate. They become Hillcrest Baptist Church and meet at 1393 9th Avenue.

2008: Hillcrest Baptist Church moves to 805 Sherbrooke Avenue and changes their name to Cornerstone Baptist Church.
