The HISTORY of CORNERSTONE BIBLE CHURCH
In 1930, a group of families seeking strong Bible teaching formed what was then known as the Independent Brethren Church of Glendora. Men from IBCG mined rock quarries in the mountains above the citrus farms of Glendora and brought down large stones out of which they built our main building. In August of 1931, the new church celebrated its first formal meeting in the new building.
For more than two decades the church thrived with a powerful ministry to families in the Glendora community. By 1974 the church was known as Bible Brethren Church, and the following year Ken Churchill accepted the position of Senior Pastor. With the direction of the Holy Spirit, he introduced “elder leadership” as the primary form of governing for the church, a structure that has served the church well since that time.
In 1986, Dr. Don Shoff accepted a call to become the church’s new pastor. He faithfully served God through continued clear and sound Bible teaching. In the late 1980s, the church membership approved a change of name to Cornerstone Bible Church.
Today the church continues to experience God’s blessing with growth and expanded ministries under the leadership of Pastor Bruce French and a dedicated staff of men and women who are committed to the faithful teaching of God’s Word and to our vision of Loving God & Others Well.
