Cornerstone Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church located at 651 Mast Road, Manchester, New Hampshire. Though the church has a Manchester address, it is located in the Pinardville section of Goffstown.
Our pastor, Ed Prescott, and his family began the church in 1999 as church planting missionaries sent out of Victory Baptist Church in Londonderry, New Hampshire. They began the church in the small living room of their apartment on Conant Street on Manchester’s west side. The church grew, and moved to 131 Amory Street in Manchester. The building, formerly a pharmacy, florist, and convenience store, was renovated for use as a church. It provided space for an auditorium, Sunday School classes, teen room, nursery, small kitchen, and church office. Cornerstone Baptist Church continued to meet there and minister on the west side of the city for nine years. In 2008, the church moved to 679 Mast Road on the second floor, above the retail stores. We often referred to that meeting place as “the upper room,” reminiscent of the meeting place of the first church in Acts chapter one.
Then, in the fall of 2012, God opened up an opportunity to move to a new location in the Pinardville area. After a couple of months of working through the town planning process and four more months of renovations, Cornerstone Baptist Church began services in March of 2013 at its new 651 Mast Road location.
Cornerstone Baptist Church continues to grow and thrive as we provide a fun, family-oriented, God-honoring, and Christ-centered church experience for all those who attend. We are proud to be a part of and serve the community of Goffstown and greater Manchester area. There is room for you to be a part of Cornerstone Baptist Church. Come visit us soon!
…Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord.— Ephesians 2:20-21
